At present it's orange - a low contrast color - and small, hard to see whether you have 27 or -27 characters left, so it's difficult to see that you've gone over the character limit. To be more usable it needs better highlighting.

Is it small? You can hit CTRL+'+', if you need it bigger. There is a minus in front of the value and the absolute amount goes up when you are in the negative area. So if you are at -27 and keep typing and then you are at -35 and you still ask yourself how many characters are left, well... Isn't that highlighting enough? –  Ladybug Killer Feb 15 '10 at 13:46

I think it would be neat if it turned a very red color, but not for the reasons you say. Just because it would be neat. :3
