At the top of that page:
The four TEXT types, TINYTEXT, TEXT, MEDIUMTEXT, and LONGTEXT,
correspond to the four BLOB types and have the same maximum lengths
and storage requirements.
There should probably be a link to
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/string-type-overview.html , which
gives you the exact limits.

No, since TINYTEXT is limited to 256 bytes.
