A random space gets deleted in tweets?

Posted by thimbleful — 11th of May 2010, 09:10 AM

When I send tweets through twittermail, my short tweets are generally fine, but otherwise I will get a random space deleted between words. What the heck? :( It's not like I'm over the 140 limit. It really bugs me.

Do you have an example?

Okay, maybe it's my apps. Not sure what's going on. In Twidroid, this looks like a deleted space; on the mobile browser, it looks like a line break. So weird.

Hmm, looks like a line break in a web browser as well. Although I'm not quite sure where to look. Possibly Twidroid removes line breaks in their client. Or do you find that spaces get deleted in other clients as well?

I guess Twidroid just removes line breaks. I haven't really tried any other twitter apps for my phone... Just installed the official Twitter app and it is also showing line breaks like the browsers do. =/

Any idea as to why I'm getting the random line break? I'm definitely not putting it there... that I know of. I use Outlook for my e-mail, though, so it might do some sort of funky formatting thing I'm completely and totally unaware of.
