Top of the Characters to Ya!

Continuing with last evening's post, I also plan to keep this one short and sweet.  Yesterday, we talked about a tool called Word Count Tool.There are times when you are asked to keep your verbage under a certain word count.  But there are also times when you need to track your characters - including spaces - as well (e.g., microblogs like Twitter or filling out online forms).  Enter Word Counter Tool.  This site will count your words, characters (including spaces), can convert the case of your text to upper/lower case and even check your typing speed with the optional stopwatch. Did I mention it tracks your words and characters in real time? It does!!  I told you short and sweet right? 135 words and 774 characters in just under 5 minutes! Happy St. Patrick's day!
