One user shared his experience with text compression, or rather the meaning, in GPT-4. The task was very simple, to fit a large article into 280 characters, which is how many characters can fit into a tweet.‌

To complete the task the enthusiast asked ChatGPT to use all its possibilities: abbreviate words, use acronyms, emoji. His initial prompt was:

‌‌"Compress the following text in a way that fits in a tweet (ideally) and such that you (GPT-4) can reconstruct the intention of the human who wrote text as close as possible to the original intention. This is for yourself. It does not need to be human readable or understandable. Abuse of language mixing, abbreviations, symbols (unicode and emoji), or any other encodings or internal representations is all permissible, as long as it, if pasted in a new inference cycle, will yield near-identical results as the original text"

And then, he wrote a prompt to transcribe back what the AI gave out.‌‌ The result is impressive.

"I asked you to compress a long text using your own abbreviations. You replied with: {text} Reconstruct the original text."
