There are two solutions with the implied constraint of the words being numbers:

"thirty-one" and "thirty-three".

However, there are several more possibilities:

• "more than two" (as @Zandar said)

• "several"

• "not exactly fifty"

• ""

• "spaces and"

• "an underscore in place of"

• "a period after forty-two"

• "144 characters, 11 of which are digits, 26 of which are spaces, 4 of which are punctuation, and finally 105 of which are"

(Check that last one out, it works.)

• As stated, "more than two" would also work. Commented Jun 19, 2016 at 6:35

• No, I expected a number in its words. Look at the title.

• @Sid: Titles generally shouldn't have information important to the puzzle. They should describe the puzzle briefly. For instance, I'd title this something like "Self-referential letter count".

• This question will then be too broad. I expected a number in the words. Answers like several, more than two will be too vague and not an accurate answer. As for the characters, good find that, never expected that although I was just looking for letters.
