This issue is also related to the fact that URL are automatically shortened by Twitter. For instance " Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Donec a diam lectus. Sed sit amet ipsum mauris. Maecenas cong" is considered as 140 char for Twitter but 165 for Gwibber.
It is kind of an obvious behaviour but maybe the solution would be to let somebody post a message once it is over 140 char...
