June 2023: "A Unique Experiment"

Author's Note:

Not exactly sure if Loganberry let my cheating of the word count slip or not, but whatever, here's the chapter with the lowest word count and yet most character count :pinkiecrazy:

Within Word Limit

Dear_FlimFlam_Message_Inc.,

I_hope_this_letter_finds_you_well._I_am_writing_to_address_a_rather_peculiar_situation_regarding_the_recent_ban_of_my_account,_@TwilightSparkle,_on_your_message_app._It_seems_there_may_have_been_some_confusion_on_your_end.

You_see,_your_app_explicitly_states_that_the_free_version_limits_messages_to_150_words_per_hour_unless_users_upgrade_to_the_Premium_version_for_24.99_Bits/week._I_am_well_aware_of_the_word_counter_that_blinks_annoyingly_once_the_message_exceeds_100_words,_as_well_as_the_pop-up_reminders_at_120_words,_urging_users_to_upgrade._These_measures_are_in_place_to_ensure_compliance_with_the_word_limit.

However,_it_appears_that_my_account_was_banned_under_the_assumption_that_I_had_exceeded_the_word_limit._Allow_me_to_clarify:_My_messages_are_formatted_to_appear_as_if_there_are_more_than_150_words,_as,_if_you_look_very_closely,_the_symbol_“_”_with_low_opacity_has_been_used_instead_of_spaces._Thus,_my_messages_never_exceeded_the_prescribed_limit_and_I_kindly_request_that_my_ban_be_lifted_accordingly.

Thank_you_for_your_attention,_and_I_eagerly_await_a_swift_resolution.

Sincerely,
Twilight_Sparkle

P.S.:_This_message_is_indeed_only_eight_words_long._It_might_be_worth_considering_whether_support_messages_should_also_be_subject_to_the_same_150-word_restriction,_regardless_of_the_app_version._Just_a_thought.
