The tweet on your account will have 140 characters which include a link to TwitLonger website where your tweet is posted.

Without a doubt a real easy and quick way to post long tweets. But a disadvantage of using TwitLonger is that it posts your tweet on their website and users will have to navigate away from Twitter to read the tweet which is not always convenient for users.
