Java Java Objects (Retired) Creating the MVP Remaining Characters

I keep getting this: java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException

I am not sure what I am doing wrong, I think I have written it like it should be

Tweet.java
public class Tweet {
  private String mText;
  public static final int MAX_TWEET = 140;

  public Tweet(String text) {
    while (text.length() > MAX_TWEET) {
    mText = text;
    }
  }

    public String getText() {
    return mText;
  }

  public int getRemainingTweet() {
    return MAX_TWEET - mText.length();
  }
}

Hi Benjamin - You shouldn't modify the constructor. It should be exactly as was provided:

public Tweet(String text) {
    mText = text;
}

The rest of your code is fine and should pass.
