Actually, that's my bad: I meant to type scalar value.

Not if the limit is counted in characters and not in bytes. Twitter, for example, counts code points in the NFC representation of a tweet.
"character", "code point" – these are confusing words :-)

From the link it isn't entirely clear whether they
(a) count scalar values of NFC or
(b) count code points of NFC.

That's why I think it's bad to write "code point" when "scalar value" is intended.
