Everything, Everything

Wow, a second yellow card after only 9 minutes. This is literally a game changing advantage for Arsenal. #COYG

Having supported Arsenal since the George Graham era, the idea of a new manager doesn't scare me. Wenger, like Herbert Chapman, should be praised and respected for transforming the club and winning major trophies; but a change was overdue. #MerciArsène

Cech really wants that clean sheet today!

A lucky deflection, but who cares. Good start for Arsenal for a change.

Twitter Extended Tweets
Wednesday 25th April, 2018 17:09
A while ago Twitter allowed tweets that were longer than the original 140 characters. Some bits of a tweet no longer counted towards the character count and they doubled it to 280 characters. To prevent breaking legacy applications they require an additional parameter when interacting with the API. You can find more details here.

It took me a while to update my own site to use the new API response, with the full_text, but I finally did that. The main thing was modifying the database to cope with the longer response. I then noticed I wasn't performing a Unicode regular expression, which broke a recent hashtag, which I've now fixed.
