Nice Article Gud job!
well, most of the applications including twitter has its own text/word counter so I dont think I need to use one 😀 but if they provides API then these apps will come handy for developers.
Every site like twitter, digg etc has their own editors and character limitation is also mentioned there. Even if you submit an article in article directory, you will also see title character range, summary range and also article body word range. The best one is to follow their own editor or tools if they are available.
Wow nice list , thanks for sharing
