Pocket only supports tag labels with a maximum length of 25 characters. There is error message or feedback shown if the user enters a longer one.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open a page.
2. Click the Pocket button.
3. Add 0123456789012345678901234 as tag and save it.
Actual & expected result:
Entered text gets tag style (rectangular box).
4. Open a page.
5. Click the Pocket button.
6. Add 01234567890123456789012345 as tag and try to save it.
Actual result:
Entered text doesn't get tag style.
Thanks for filing! This is on our (Pocket)'s end, I've filed a ticket internally and we'll take a look at improving this experience. I _think_ you can probably close this bug.
The texts given to localizers contain an error message for that (error2: "Tags are limited to 25 characters."), but it doesn't seem to be used yet.
