Java Java Objects (Retired) Creating the MVP Remaining Characters

remaining characters

Add a new method that returns the remaining characters available, based on the length of what is currently stored in mText.

im failing to see where im getting it wrong.

public class Tweet {
  private String mText;
  public static final int MAX_CHARACTERS = 140;

  public Tweet(String text) {
    mText = text;

  public String getText() {
    return mText;
  pubic int getRemainingCharacters() {
    retun MAX_CHARACTERS - mText.length();

An amusing typo, I think .... pubic should be public :-)

Also, retun should be return.


hahaha thanx steve
