  • freethelemmings John Kelley (@freethelemmings) reported

    When your job uses both @Skype and @MicrosoftTeams it's a lot like when you change cable companies and the new company literally rips out any of the old existing connections just to make the other company's life hell if they ever have to hook up service again. #GetYourOwnSandbox

    @Skype Skype comprises a combo of morons, idiots, & imbeciles. There's no way to contact anyone to correct an absurdly grotesque problem created by the above mentioned morons, idiots, & imbeciles. God save us from Know-It-All Techies! PERSIST! RESIST! RAGE! RETWEET!

  • Cocavan11 Ó Gaff Mór (@Cocavan11) reported

    @Skype General Question to the TwitterVerse: Is Skype support as incompetent and as utterly unreachable as it seems to be or is there a secret to getting a human to deal with what Skype has made into an absurdly complex problem?
