All of us, whether we're established writers or just online vagabonds, now live in the age of the word count.
Whether you are aware of text counts or not, a person who writes words is operating within text limits, from online character limits to long document requirements in business settings.
Originally, Twitter limited tweets to 140 characters before increasing them to 280.
Facebook doesn't allow anybody to post more than 63,206 characters on their profile or use more than 8,000 characters when responding to a comment.
Instagram allows 30 hashtags per post. In Instagram, the maximum caption length is just 2,200 characters, and 125 of those will be truncated.
According to some sources, a blog post may need at least 1800 words in order to be ranked on the first page of Google.
Get it? We're living in the world of character limits!
Ensure your content always stays within the confines of these platforms so you do not end up unintentionally having to decrease or increase your words back and forth to meet requirements.
Using a text counter tool will help you to accomplish this.
You can use a word calculator in more ways than merely tracking the number of characters in social media posts. Our Word Counter tool can also calculate the Keyword density of your blog or social media post.
