@help Suggestion: For posts longer than 280 characters, when syndicating to the timeline or Twitter, do not truncate the posts at the first word-break before 280 characters.

Instead, truncate the post at the first LINE break before 280 characters (where such a line break exists, of course -- if the first paragraph runs beyond 280 characters, then truncating at the line-break would not be possible.)

The result would be a cleaner, more readable post in both the timeline and on Twitter.


Here is how the post appears on the timeline:

<img src="" width="259" height="60" alt="" />

And on Twitter:

Implementing my suggestion, that same post would end on the timeline and Twitter with the word "Godiva" -- nicer and more readable!
