Get character limit from instance

Hey folks,

How can I get the character limit of instance for posts via API?
I took a look into Instance method, but nothing useful there.

Mastodon’s character limit is 500 characters. Forks or other “Mastodon-compatible” software may customize that limit, but if a specific server customizes that limit, you should reach out to them for instructions on how to handle it. Mastodon itself does not allow customization or changing of this limit.

Oh. That made things clear. Thank you.

Forks that do have a custom limit usually expose it as the max_toot_chars field in /api/v1/instance
