A Twitter bug in the t.co URL shortener left many befuddled exploiting the 140 characters length limit flaw, allowing users to tweet out non-URL links of outrageously more than 140 characters; "A Japanese user tweeted 2,135 character tweet, which was inevitably retweeted by more than 100 people. Another user sent 3,157 characters tweet."
