The wordcloud widget breaks up single words containing special characters into multiple words.
Steps to Reproduce
1 - Create few incidents with the word "Ka\nn@an G#o$vinda&ra^jan" in the short description.
2 - Create a widget with type=text, visualization=wordcloud, Indicator=Number of open incidents.
3 - Add this new widget to the dashboard.
Notice the wordcloud splits the single word "G#o$vinda&ra^jan" into five different words separated by the special characters.
