Having a bit of trouble with the website, and can't find contact info for the webmaster. The Problem: if my post is accidentally longer than 140 characters, it sets a flag (only 140 characters allowed). But after I edit and remove some characters, the flag does not reset, as the result, once i go over the limit, I can not make the post no matter how much i change to get it in the proper limit. This is a fairly easy software fix....
