    I just found some people noticing that it is possible to exceed the 140 char length of tweets if it looks like a YouTube url.
    I probed with it a bit and made a tweet that causes my Webbrowser (latest Google Chrome) to either freeze or crash when the Tweet shows up on Twitter's front page.
    Here's the link to my tweet: https://twitter.com/CosmoCortney/status/926912373583204352

    I don't want to try it myself because I want to keep my Switch below 4.0.0

    Probably hopes that this leads to a browser exploit on latest firmware.

    Looks like that's a Twitter oversight that may be fixed relatively quickly.

    Either way loading this on my phone through the Twitter app loads up youtube to an invalid video message.

    this is a complete waste of time
    why would this even lead to an exploit?

    "I just hang out here because uselessness is useful apparently."
    Anyway, the guy that originally discovered this leveraged a loophole in Twitter's URL shortener, and actually made a post with over 30,000 characters in it. Twitter has since patched it.
