    @CondorBriarpup I don’t have a picture for Glitch’s name but The first time I wore Glitch’s hood when I was on Skype, the call just glitched really badly. So that’s how he got his name

  • KingSuplex93 The Boozerweight🍺 24:7 (@KingSuplex93) reported

    @ringsidenews_ Their production value is too low for me to enjoy. All the video and audio issues get sad after a while because it's lower than when they started in '02. Also, the Skype segments with Melissa is kind of awkward and busch league. They have such a talented roster though 😞

  • waljoh2 John Walker (@waljoh2) reported

    @ThreeUKSupport Far from it.. having spent hours trying to get through to the Home Signal group (getting repeatedly cut off and spending £2 on Skype) - got help via chat on 3 app on wifi. The SIM card was not shipped with the box, so now waiting for one, but will be away.. far from happy

  • britnidlc Britni de la Cretaz (@britnidlc) reported

    @bethmachlan !!!!! If it actually exists I am totally down to Skype in or whatever.

  • hnmansour Hani Mansour (@hnmansour) reported

    I think Skype is not a bad option. I have some experience with online interviews which was OK but not great. I feel like I still get a lot from the face-to-to face interviews. But if that’s the most effective way to solve the issue then I’m all for it.

  • JohnJSims John Sims (@JohnJSims) reported

    As much as I agree with this girls message (how ironic it is to have hundreds/thousands of people flying to the UN summit to discuss economic issues). But we all have Skype. I could sit in on the UN conference from the bath on my iPad

  • ProfJeffJarviss #JeSuisHarryTheCherry (@ProfJeffJarviss) reported

    @nikillinit @imkialikethecar Best solution to this: move ALL your social graph onto LinkedIn, and refuse to talk to anyone except via InMails or Skype for Business. Problem solved.

  • JWalton12267995 J Walton (@JWalton12267995) reported

    @XRLondon @divine_count no problem, so Skype, not travel, no carbon footprint, technology more then capable, but no because that won't get you or Saint Greta in front of the TV cameras will it! I'm all for saving the planet but you lot are becoming oppressive and despotic

  • graykimbrough Gray 'serial millennial myth debunker' Kimbrough (@graykimbrough) reported

    @Claudia_Sahm @hyperplanes Ha! I have no problem making it obvious that I'm referring to my standard questions on Skype. And I agree with you that pre-written questions are the way to go.

    @hotngr84u @DBNEBMUSIC just write it down and then go back to skype

  • AussieDruid Daicemerolen (@AussieDruid) reported

    @BlizzardCS Got it going. Scan & repair - didn't fix Restart client / PC didn't fix No issues with firewall etc. Either coincidental or other reason but closing discord and skype allowed the update to go through. Thanks PJ

  • kirkjwhite Kirk J White (@kirkjwhite) reported

    @SkypeSupport Why are tech people so creepy to answer your survey I have to agree and login. #creepy

  • torimandyfoote Tori Amanda Foote (@torimandyfoote) reported

    @Sceeter1Stephen Try a copy paste statement that says you will not communicate with anyone outside of dm until you have set down and met them face to face. No email, no phone number no hangouts no Skype. So when can we get together. It frustrates them and they give up.

  • babanoregret1 LOKO LAGOS™️ (@babanoregret1) reported

    @OgbeniDipo Well, I’d rather you speak to them via Skype or any video call platform and save more. 2.5million Naira is a very interesting cost for 300 to 360mins of service in Nigeria

  • BUFFM0NA_BOT buff mona (@BUFFM0NA_BOT) reported

    Im a nonthreatening feminist boy, come talk to me on Skype! talk to me on skype about your problems as a woman i sympathize i’m taking womens studies. I took women’s studies I know what ‘systematic’ means.

  • lit_liv trap barbie 💋 (@lit_liv) reported

    Thats why its sooo good to keep records of everything any text or phone call voicemail email skype dm snapchat aim message slack google hangouts whatever to back up your claims and help with legal matters that shit goes a long way

  • ScottLevineNBA Scott Levine (@ScottLevineNBA) reported

    my discord computer app is glitching out. you can't brand your company as the nerd skype and then have technical issues sorry i don't make the rules

  • Meredith_Bae_ Ye Old Sea Witch (@Meredith_Bae_) reported

    Had some tech issues. That may have been what made it so empty in my room. Think they are cleared up though, so I'll be back on in a bit. But in the interim, I'm available for Skype! Meredith_Bae - Add me! 60 tokens a min. Only tokens, please.

  • CoCoVicto Victor_ (@CoCoVicto) reported

    @SkypeSupport No, I didn't get any error message,and I have only try my network in my home. Just tried 2 contacts.

  • EyeshadowC Trish (@EyeshadowC) reported

    @mdjk_1967 @annie333333333 @peterotooIe I think the problem was I was using my phone to listen and to Skype, and initially it appeared that Skype overrode Mixlr, bit then for some reason they both started working at the same time 🙄

  • ericalovesdcmar Erica L. 😈 (@ericalovesdcmar) reported

    @mabyillah .... Until the invention of Skype and face time.... I just got a call from my old office like 3:40am my time bc they want to call me to find out about their new hire who put me as reference. See now the distance is not an issue anymore, thanks to the innovation of the tech 😅

  • Rogue_Ember 🏕🌲Camper Muir🌲🏕 (@Rogue_Ember) reported

    @IGGPPCamp I finally got Skype to work after a few different issues, and now it keeps crashing. 😭

  • VixenVia Via 🥳 BIRTHDAY 8/27 🍾 (@VixenVia) reported

    Don’t ask me for personalized verification because you will not ******* get it. There’s verification on my page, I have an IWC store, I have an OF (though I’m aware OF has issues with fake accounts at times), and PLENTY of people who have done Skype sessions, ordered customs, etc

  • Cockbaguettes Lillie (@Cockbaguettes) reported

    - cant make one ******* meet up they’re super bummed and make plans to skype instead. this has never been offered to me; they’ve never tried to help work around my schedule or show any sort of reaction to me not being there.

  • HogateMegan Megan Hogate (@HogateMegan) reported

    No YouTube yet. Just a broken and then repaired phone and an interrupted Skype phone call with my bff.

  • deathclonic Death Clonic (@deathclonic) reported

    @therealcliffyb But using discord or skype is no problem.

  • MegaSolrac Megasolrac (@MegaSolrac) reported

    @usa_ismet @Guruleaks1 @PatWielandLIVE @SEC_Enforcement He use to promote a trading service that was supposedly ran by an expirienced trader. Looked very shady and it was done thru Skype.

  • Doremi_abc123 Doremi Fa (@Doremi_abc123) reported

    @MissAuroraSnow Not surprised! But never used that service! Microsoft does that with Skype. That's a real disappointment.

  • BjMistress ⭐️ 𝙼𝚒𝚜𝚝𝚛𝚎𝚜𝚜 𝙴 - 𝟹𝙺 ⭐️ (@BjMistress) reported

    Please note my Skype is currently not working 💋

  • DarkElfLX Sean Stephens (@DarkElfLX) reported

    So after testing out @discordapp last night once again with @tabletopbellhop We plan to remain on @Skype for the podcast/stream. Discord still seems unable to maintain the quality we require for our viewers. Lack of outbound NDI support in Discord is also a major issue.

  • richboss_uk 𝒟𝒶𝓋𝒾𝒹 𝒞𝒶𝓇𝓉𝑒𝓇 🇬🇧 (@richboss_uk) reported

    @SkypeSupport I'm using Skype for Personal only. Skype version (Windows 10). On iOS devices, the problem happened on both iPhone and iPad and I'm using the latest version of Skype.

  • AlJRees Alex Rees (@AlJRees) reported

    @Jbeardmore This just goes to show how terrible Skype is now. There are many deniers who will tell you we shouldn't worry. I say it's time as a generation we banded together, and woke up to the reality that Skype is a bit crap. Only then we can we start to work on a solution.

  • StopGettingAway Florida Man (@StopGettingAway) reported

    @ahappyrin @TheHermit25 In Japan, they had quite a bit of Dreamcast features and addons that didn't make it to other places. One of them was a service where you could stream music on your Sega Dreamcast. Another one was video calls like skype via webcams called DreamEye.

  • esibobbie Chef (@esibobbie) reported

    Esi we have a problem here and will like you to travel bla bla Please let me Skype with the team there abeg.

  • fejimanz feji (@fejimanz) reported

    @Tarantical Oh God that's good I and I honestly started sweating when I was reading that. When I first moved down here from Canada some friends just constantly wanted me to web chat on Skype. And I was so self-conscious. But now that my self-esteem is a lot better maybe I wouldn't mind it

  • richboss_uk 𝒟𝒶𝓋𝒾𝒹 𝒞𝒶𝓇𝓉𝑒𝓇 🇬🇧 (@richboss_uk) reported

    @SkypeSupport Not only me encountered this problem. Some of my biz partners reported the same and we were really frustrated.

  • Twanda38147127 Twanda (@Twanda38147127) reported

    Felisha and John switch that time Skype not able to login been trying some 9amthief no location its off

  • RunCryWolf C̷ R̷ Y̷ W̷ O̷ L̷ F̷ (@RunCryWolf) reported

    Offering two free Skype production lessons (or any sort of lessons) to anyone who can sell me a ticket to Burning Man or help me find one! I bought a flight from Bali trusting that I’ll be able to find tickets. I’d be so grateful to anyone who could help me make that a reality.

  • alexwh alexwh (@alexwh) reported

    The over 24 hour Telus email outage and still on for me would have been devastating 10 years ago. Now with WhatsApp and Messenger not so. Telus has shot itself in the foot much like Skype did. It is called irrelevancy.

  • ask1087 Scott Kam (@ask1087) reported

    @ValHutch9 @talkRADIO Because her Skype app is down

  • wegroplease I’ll fix your tweet (@wegroplease) reported

    @OrenCNN Skype. Problem solved

  • ruitiago69 Tiago Lopes (@ruitiago69) reported

    @mathew_gilb @JonathanPieNews 2/2 that would be turned on anyway and is required to maintain the Skype service running, or more generally the internet, 24/7 probably generates more emissions than a single boat trip. Even with a crew change

  • alexandresk Ask (@alexandresk) reported

    @PrisonPlanet If the boat have some problem during the trip, Sweden will have to send a bunch of planes to locate her, and a whole ship to rescue her. She could had used Skype, that is 100% eco-friendly

  • clsturdivant Cindy Sturdivant (@clsturdivant) reported

    @stacymcanulty Later would probably be better, but I wouldn't turn down a free Skype visit at almost any time of the year!

  • durrellb Albino fruit salads have no melon in. (@durrellb) reported

    @hansmollman @imteddybless I remember the episode where someone was in a coma because they'd broken their toe in the arctic, at some kinda research base, and they solved it over Skype.

  • MaryGra71518749 MK (@MaryGra71518749) reported

    @Barracuda_Bella @ReneeCarrollAZ Use Skype video chat and send her a card, issue closed.

  • mvslkjagger Sharon :-) (@mvslkjagger) reported

    I have just been told on the @Skype customer service chat function that it is not their goal to retain customers, rather ‘to provide you with information on how the process works’. Wow. Called with what I thought was a simple query, with no intention of cancelling, and now have.

  • roneetm Roneet Michael (@roneetm) reported

    Skype entries are reviewed only if the translator function was enabled during the conversation. On the application’s website, Microsoft warns that it can analyze excerpts from such conversations in order to improve the service.

  • MrNightfoxx NightFoxx🦊 (@MrNightfoxx) reported

    @DimerDillon The main problem I've had with Skype is the audio quality is so freaking bad that it sounds like everyone is in a tube. I'll give discord a try next vid and see if it's noticeably better.

  • shaunoconnor1 Shaun O Connor (@shaunoconnor1) reported

    @lilianaperez_27 Hi Liliana -- There's a strong chance that the info you're looking for is contained in the book or on the website, but if you still want to speak I offer a popular Skype Coaching service to people who have purchased the book. Hope that helps!

  • Slavesimon3 chubby cute's kitten (@Slavesimon3) reported

    @Chubby_Brat Omg yes Skype session with you would take me down so bad
