Excel is a handy tool for tracking blog and social media posts. For character length limits, such as the 140 limit in Twitter, try using the LEN function to ensure your post will be suitable for the target. So, for example, if you have the post date in column A and the post in column B, in column C type = LEN(C2), where C2 contains your post. The result will be the number of characters. Be sure not to add any spaces you don’t need. You can apply Conditional formatting to highlight cells greater than your desired post length.
