Character Counter

Character counter is a free online tool that counts how many characters you type in real-time. It tracks characters, words, as well as how close you are to reaching Facebook and Twitter character count limits. Since a lot of websites have a character limit for text content this tool will help you stay within those bounds.


Facebook has an upper character limit of 63,206 characters, but you should aim for no more than 250 characters if you want to keep users engaged. The optimal length for a Facebook post is around 40 to 80 characters with the maximum user engagement coming from posts around this length.


Twitter has a limit of 280 characters but that doesn’t mean you should use all 280 characters. According to Buffer, the optimal length for a tweet is 71 to 100 characters. Twitter posts in this range get more retweets, replies, and more engagement from users.
