Expansive Thoughts, a Tweet Splitter/Separator
Split messages and comments into 140 character chunks.

I've been looking for a tool like this for awhile, and finally decided to just make it myself. A lot of the "tweet longer" sorts of sites out there create images or require the reader to click a link to read the rest, but this just splits the text up and lets you copy and paste it wherever you wish.

This is my first complex javascript/jquery project, so I'm sure there's bugs. I had a lot of fun trying to figure out how to create the tweet and select text buttons. All I can say is thank god for stackoverflow.

I'm more then happy to hear if you have suggestions/feedback!

Very handy!

One feature request, if you still feel like picking at it: It would be great if the user could specify the continuation string and substitute something else for "(c)".

I _really_ like this.

Oh, this is handy.

When I do this by hand -- the "oh, this thought won't fit into one tweet, it'll have to be two" -- the decision is really where to put the split to be least intrusive to the flow of thought.

I'm wondering if that process could be somewhat simulated by slightly preferring to split at punctuation -- periods, commas, semicolons, colons, dashes -- over always filling to the 140-char limit?
