Oh mein Gott! Wie kann ich alles was ich sagen will mitt nur 140 Buchstaben!

Oh my god! How can I write everything I want to write with 140 characters!

Wie kann ich über das “rindfleischetikettierungsüberwachungsaufgabenübertragungsgesetz” reden?

How can I talk about the “the law for the delegation of monitoring beef labeling”?

In truth, these long compounds are rare and it is simply a custom in German to put the nouns that make up a compounds together without spaces. With spaces it would look like “rindfleisch etikettierungs überwachungs aufgaben übertragungs gesetz” which is not nearly at bad!
