You have to manually verify that you aren’t going over the Twitter limit because otherwise, Twitter cuts off your SMS tweet at 140 characters.
Adding a sticker to a photo If you are Tweeting from the Twitter for i OS or Twitter for Android app, you can add up to 25 stickers to a photo, once you take or select an image.
To add a sticker to an image: Note: To remove the image file you selected, click or tap the x on the image thumbnail (or next to the file name).
To remove a tag, tap the tag and then the backspace or delete button. You can’t remove tags from a photo once it is Tweeted. If your animated GIF doesn’t loop and plays a single time, it will display as a static image.
Don’t confuse notifications with following, though. Following means you follow their updates generally via Twitter.
Notifications are a more intimate connection where you get their every tweet as an SMS text on your phone.
With notifications ON, you also get all your DMs via SMS.
The maximum length for a standard text message is 160 characters, but Twitter’s maximum is 140 characters.
Many twitterers use Twitter almost exclusively on their mobile phones.
Text messaging (SMS) is the most basic way to access Twitter via your cellphone.
