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

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

Welcome to GBATemp, 90% of the posts here are a waste of time.
"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.
