No of the answers for others help me on this.

I have looked through the questions and answers on this and none of them are working for me. I just keep getting this "Bummer! Make sure you create a public method getRemainingCharacterCount that accepts no parameters and returns an int"

Tweet.java
public class Tweet {
  public static final int MAX_CHARS = 140;
  private String text;


  public Tweet(String text) {
    this.text = text;
  }

  public String getText() {
    return text;
  }

  public void setText(String text) {
    this.text = text;
  }

   public int getRemaningCharacterCount() {
    return  MAX_CHARS - text.length();
  }

}

Hi there! Your logic and syntax are spot on so well done! However, you have a typo which is causing the challenge to fail. Take a look:

// You typed
getRemaningCharacterCount()

// It's supposed to be
getRemainingCharacterCount()

Check closely the Remaining vs Remaning. Your version has omitted the "i" betwein the "a" and "n".

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
