Take a look at @syldatk20 on Twitter (The profile has since been suspended so visiting the page will return a 404 error).

This guy's Bio is really, really long. He bypassed Twitter's character limit, but I have no idea how.

The only weird thing I see there is the double space before 160th char. I think there is some special character (CESU-8?), but Twitter just doesn't display it.

Shows that the original person hacked Twitter just to do that, and was banned. – Hydra Feb 12 '13 at 11:26
I've seen tweets bypass the 140 char mark... – Cole Johnson Feb 13 '13 at 18:57
Anyways, did you get a character dump of it all, or are you assuming those characters are there? It would help to have a Unicode dump of the string? As in char numbers of each one... – Cole Johnson Feb 13 '13 at 18:58
@Hydra off topic: Twitter really should state why they were banned (especially to the user themselves)... – Cole Johnson Feb 13 '13 at 19:00

yes it is possible using pagetweet ,use Pagetweet you can shorten the url and link with your message you can bypass the twitter 140 chars

Or use Twitzer is a Firefox extension that will allow you to do just that: post more than 140 characters on Twitter….sort of. You can only use it directly from the Twitter website. When you’re done typing in a message on Twitter, simply right-click on the box and select "Twitzer text". From there, the Twitzer extension will shorten the entry to 140 characters and include a link to the rest of your text, which is uploaded to the shortText website.
