Whether you are an established writer or just another Internet rambler, we are now all living in the era of word counts.
From social media character limits, to lengthy document requirements in corporate settings, if you've been writing words, then you've been operating with word counts, whether you are aware of it or not.
Twitter used to limit us to 140 characters, but later pushed it to 280.
Facebook wouldn't let you post anything that is longer than 63,206 characters or even let you comment using using more than 8,000 characters.
How about Instagram’s 30 hashtags limit? The limited 2,200 characters they allow in your Instagram captions will even get truncated after just 125.
We even hear that for your blog post to break into a first page ranking on Google, it may have to stay north of 1800 words.
