Inconsistent tweet lengths

I am seeing inconsistent result lengths for tweets in the Twitter connector. Tweet Text can be up to 280 characters for original tweets, but they seem to be trimmed to 140 characters for retweets. Is this expected?

Hi @Diverdown1964,


Yes, I’m afraid that there might be a limitation on the retweet characters. What’s the error message you get on your side?


Please try to reduce the retweet characters under the limitation to see if it will work well.


Best regards,

Hello Mabel


THere is no error message, but the retweet message body gets truncated to 140 characters. This is inconsistent with the way the original tweets behave, and is suboptimal. I clearly have no control over the length of retweets, and this flow is monitoring public conversations.
