If you're going to truncate text...

I have mobile notifications set up on Twitter for when someone mentions me. (I'm @mrlacey by the way.)

The other day, I noticed this:

Notice the highlighted text. It seems to suggest an account name that starts with an "r". That's odd I thought. None of my twitter accounts start with an "r".
"I wonder what account it's from? I know, I'll look at the full message and see"


If you're going to truncate text in your app, I'd recommend doing a better job of it than this.
