    The “Evening Acoustic” playlist on Spotify is just what I needed to wind down, center myself, and focus after these past 2 days...

    @alboston Surely midnight local time! Broken Machine actually dropped at 11pm on September the 7th for me. So if Spotify wants to be stupid and make that mistake again, that would be lovely! 😂

    @Spotify Hello, for some random reason i cant find the answers for, i cant add my mom to my spotify family plan. Ive looked at your website and nothing helps me with the problem. Please i need to solve this this week.

    @SpotifyCares Nope, no error messages. My music just stops playing or the app closes itself.


    @SpotifyCares I tried different browsers so it is probably my shitty DSL. I think you Germans got us beat with Internet speed. Our problems are numerous for us Americans. We need better Internet and Wi-Fi for the whole nation. But I have heard that even FIOS is not all that all the time.

    My @spotify student discount just ran out and now I'm lost, and down £9.99


    @SpotifyCares Nope still dropping out. Might be my crummy DSL. The problem with living in the USA rurals.

    @SpotifyCares can you please fix the Android Spotify app. It’s constantly crashing every 15 seconds and restarting the entire song. Like I’m paying for premium but I can’t access my music :/ read the reviews on the play store. There’s a pile of issues that need fixing. TIA

    @SpotifyCares What's not cool is i've tried replicating the issue on both app/pc and to no avail, what is cool is that someone out there responded to my tweet (thank you!) and i will! I tried logging out and in as well as trying songs i've never listened to also but no idea why it happened 🙃

    @brentwpetersen Going to give it a shot on Hulu eventually. Problem is since my sub is currently tied to Spotify I can't upgrade to the no-commercials tier for Hulu so I have to either make a new account or maybe after my sub runs out I can change it.

    @TheLlamaBlogs We're all lil hipsters on the inside. And yeah, same (kinda). It's not easy to find the good stuff. I can't really 'click' with much of the most talked about stuff. For me, it mostly comes down to randomly selected stuff from Spotify or a couple of sources who's opinions I trust

    @Spotify I truly hope you'll get a new app update out soon, fixing all the problems with the last one. I can't use your Android App anymore! Music only plays half a second, downloads don't work. If it will stay like this, you'll lose me as a customer.

    e.g: tonight I switched on my fairy lights, put on a relaxing playlist on spotify, set a timer for 15 minutes and then lay down with cucumber slices on my eyes, eyes closed + hands resting on my stomach as I concentrated on my breathing...and I feel so much better for doing so 😌

    Hi @instagram!! I always seem to have issues with you!! Current issue is: when I try to share a song from Spotify onto my insta story, it switches over to my Instagram app and asks me to log in even though I already am. And then when I do log in again it doesn’t post the song.
