Academic Writing

This word counter is perfect for academic writing, such as reports or essays. Often, in college and/or university, students have to write a report with the requirement of a minimum or maximum amount of words. Start writing and check how many words you have from time to time. Do not wait until you're done, you might have to remove or add a too much at once. Planning ahead works better.

Websites & social media

Various websites and social media platforms apply a maximum character count. This table shows the maximum number of characters for various social media platforms, such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn. You can, again, use this character counter to write tweets and posts and to make sure they are not too long.

Instagram Post 2200
Instagram Bio 150

How does it work?

The counter is easy to use. Either paste your text or type your text in the text box, and wait until you see the amount of words, characters, and paragraphs of your text in the box above the text box. If you want to start over, you can remove the text or use the 'Clear text' button, which removes all text from the text box.
