Scheduling Posts > Character Limitations

Character Limitations

Social networks enforce character limitations. Each type of social account has its own character limitations in place. Every time you create a post, Comity will check for character count automatically.


  • Facebook: 5000
  • Twitter: 280
  • Linkedin: 1300
  • Mastodon: 500
  • Pinterest: 500

When posting to multiple social networks at the same time, Comity will enforce the lowest character limit. For example, if you try to share to Facebook & Twitter at the same time, you can only type up to 280 characters. If you try to share to Facebook & Linkedin simultaneously, then the limit will become 1300. You can overcome this limitation by customizing posts after you schedule them.
