Tweet.java "Bummer: Uh oh, fatal exception occurred"

I believe I'm coding this correctly, however I'm getting the error in my title. Cant find anything on Google, and trying to rearrange causes me to fail because its not what the challenge expects.

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

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

  public String getText() {
    return text;
  }

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

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

I'm also getting the same error and would appreciate clarification. I was wondering if it had to do with having a negative value?
