Any serious steganography system should make use of coding. Here, we investigate the performance of our prior linguistic steganographic method for tweets, combined with perfect coding. We propose distortion measures for linguistic steganography, the first of their kind, and investigate the best embedding strategy for the steganographer. These distortion measures are tested with fully automatically generated stego objects, as well as stego tweets filtered by a human operator. We also observed a square root law of capacity in this linguistic stegosystem.
