      I had an instructor ask me a question yesterday that I don't know the answer to and haven't been able to find.  He sent an announcement in a course yesterday to let students know that class was canceled.  It was a short 2 sentence announcement letting students know and that they would resume class the following day.  He has his notifications set to send announcements to his cell phone (SMS) as do a few students.  He received the message, but it cut off in the middle of the first sentence.  Students received the same message he did and it led to some confusion. 

      Is there a character limit for announcements that are sent to cell phones as a text?
