Friendica Support reshared this.

"Data too long" is just that the data is too long. That's not really critical, this is just a data thing. And "compacting error" just is a notice that some input couldn't be compacted - which just means that the input had been invalid.

This is not critical when it doesn't happen all the time.
Thanks @Michael Vogel for the explanation! 👍
That's the "name" of the user/contact. :-)

Slightly long :-) We now have got some length checks in the system - but not at every place.
Thanks for pointing this out @Steffen K9 🐰 This is rather strange. I guess this is via twitter.

Is it possible that something went wrong here and the content of a message ended up in the user name field?
Possible. One should check the original Tweet and how it was handled on our side.
I think I found the tweet: https://nitter.eu/SZarifi/status/1412387612568997890

It's a retweet by this person that contains a shared tweet which in turn has a shorted URL that previews exactly that message content.

So it looks like that Friendica assumes this as a username.

Once you click on Rachel Reid's tweet the message-like box should become apparent.

In what table does this end up? I have several of these errors.

My goodness! 😳
Shall I open an issues for this? 😌
