Question: Twitter

I cannot upload jpeg photos from my files for use with a tweet. I can compose and tweet messages using letters and numbers, but I cannot upload photos, even when I can locate them in my files while on my Twitter page.

There are other problems as well. For example, I cannot send direct tweets, and I cannot open a compose window from the pages of another person. Further, the Tweet button and compose field are now colored red instead of the usual black or blue.

I have tried using a different browser (Internet Explorer vs Chrome) and a different desktop (PC vs Mac), but I am experiencing the same problems.

All this began after Twitter announced its extended character experiment on Sept. 20. Are these problems experiment-related?

I am calling my problems Twitter Jitters. Are others experiencing similar problems? What is the fix?

Preferred Solution: Twitter

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

In the last few days, I've been experiencing some difficulties when using the Twitter app; though I can see the tweets, I can't see either the profile pictures or the attached ones. This only happens when I'm connected to 3G (it's not my data connection; every single thing works like charm, except from the things related to Twitter).
Also, I always get an error (83CF1105, more exactly) when I try to sync my Twitter account with my phone. I've deleted the account many times but it just hasn't worked.
In addition, I'm not even able to access the web page from IE. From UC Browser, it happens the same as in the app: No pictures at all.
Is there anybody else going through the same situation? I'd really appreciate any help.
Thanks in advance.
PS: I'm from Colombia.

When I first installed Windows 8 I used my Live account to log in and linked it to my Twitter and Facebook accounts.
My Facebook friends and everyone I follow on Twitter then appeared as contacts in my People app
I have since removed the link to both Twitter and Facebook accounts.
All my Facebook friends have been removed from the People app but the Twitter contacts still appear there.
There is no Delete option. How do I remove them?

Twitter Is Inviting Users to Become ?Twitter Insiders? to Shape Its Direction






Twitter has retained a research firm to support a new program called Twitter Insiders, Motherboard learned earlier today, which is described as an ?exclusive community? where these select users will play a ?leading role in making the platform better for brands.?



I received an invitation to join this secret society earlier today, after noticing a tweet in my personal timeline asking if I was interested. Of course I said yes.

The thing that drives me nuts about the metro apps is that most of them offer less functionality than a regular ol desktop app.
Case in point-
On the desktop twitter app if I copy a link and want to @ people as soon as I type the first couple letters it gives me suggestions. Not with the metro app.
It seems like they're all just stripped down versions of more powerful desktop apps. So why would anyone want less functionality?

I'm trying to make sense of it.

Answer:Metro Twitter App Vs Desktop Twitter App

I haven't tried the metro twitter app, I have used the desktop twitter app all the times. I think it very convenient for me.

It depends on what you're trying to achieve here.

To reply to someone you need to click the symbol under their tweet. If you see the square arrows that is for retweet, the reply is like a curved arrow.

Answer:Twitter help

Hi biferi. Welcome to BC! 
 
The @Home page shows your 'feed' and all the tweets of the people you follow.
 
Yes, you should see the tweet from the actress in your feed. 
 
Just FYI, because of the large amount of followers and popularity of celebrities, if a celebrity were to tweet to you or even retweet one of your tweets, you will definitely know it. The fans that follow the celebrity will start to tweet to you and Retweet (RT) the celebrity tweet, so you would see many replies and tweets in your feed....just the nature of fans and how twitter works. 
 
It is generally very hard to get a reply or a retweet from a celebrity. This is because they sometimes have millions of followers. That means that what THEY see in their feed is hundreds and hundreds of tweets to them by the minute, they would not have time to read all of them.
 
You should definitely keep trying and keep tweeting to them. 
 
Twitter will also suggest other similar people or fans for you to start following, and you can connect with others who share your interest that way. 
 
You can also see activity for your account my clicking on @Connect next to the @Home button. @Connect will display things like new followers or people who have favorited or retweeted one of your tweets. 
 
You also should check your settings to make sure you will receive an email notification whenever someone tweets to you.  Under settings is email notifications... Read more

Answer:What do I do to use twitter

ponytail: if you don't feel the need to share - in less than 140 characters - every minute detail of your every living hour - what you're thinking, what you're doing, what you're eating, what you're watching in an inane stream of consciousness that mostly says "Look at me!

Why, and can this be resolved ?
Thank you
Mat

Answer:Twitter

Stack is a specific amount of memory assigned to a program to use. A stack overflow means that this stack is full and you can't insert anymore data into it.
Are you using Internet Explorer?
I would suggest you try the following method and check if it helps.
Increase the disk space for Temporary Internet Files.

Open Internet Explorer. Click on Tools and then on Internet options.
In the General Tab, Under Browsing History, click on Settings.
Increase Disk Space to use, from 50 to 100.
Click on Save.
Restart Internet Explorer and check if helps.

I have a problem that I have not been able to solve. When I try to create a Tweet, if I type in a URL it starts generating bogus "pictures". It'll create about 5, then say I have to remove one before continuing. If I remove one, another is immediately generated. These are not real pictures. They have bogus file names. I can't tell if it's a Twitter problem, or a problem with my computer. I have run several antivirus and malware programs and none of them has found anything. Looking for suggestions.

I really think you would be better looking on the twitter forums for help with this. Google 'twitter forums' or 'forums on twitter' and take your pick.

Question: Help with twitter

Hi guys,

three weeks ago i opened my first twitter account, during the time of registration i opted to make my account a public one. and if i searched my name on search engines like Google, i would see my profile listed among the top results. three days later i changed my account to be a private one . may account continued to be a private one for a week and then i decided to revert back to a public account, a week ago. The thing is if i my name on Google, my profile is not listed. what can i do to make it listed on these results?

looking forward to hearing from you!

Thanks
 

Answer:Help with twitter

Well if you have made your account public again, simply visit any social bookmarking website like digg and bookmark your twitter URL. It will get reindexed again. Or you can simply visit a web directory and list your twitter URL. Basically as soon as Google reindexes your URL it will be back up for your name in the search results.

OK I've been holding out using Twitter as long as I can, but it looks like I'm going to have to fully give in since it's an important tool for my website and there's people on there that I want to follow. I've actually had an account for quite some time, but I wonder if there is some setting that needs to be on or something. In other words, for example when George Lucas tweets (and he is on my following list) that I would be notified by email? I've looked and looked for a setting to make that happen, but just have not gotten anywhere, so I just end up signing in everyday and checking out what people say. I've also tried some of those Twitter apps that you can one-click from the system tray, and things like that. So I'm listening for ideas?

who am i posting my news feeds too ? only my followers ?

how can you reach more people? or get more followers ?
 

Answer:How does twitter work ?

If your profile is not set to private then, theoretically, you are posting to the whole world.

You can gain more followers by doing the following:

1. posting quality tweets
2. marketing yourself

It does take time. I am on the brink of 400 followers and I've been a Twitter member for well over two years; having a popular blog *really* helps.

Additionally, you can reach more people by linking your Facebook, blog, website, et cetera to your Twitter account.

If someone could help me out that would be great. I get a lot of my news as I work via these websites rather than trolling/surfing the net looking for good reads. I am actually more productive while being logged into those sites and having them on in the background.

I had an old account, but I deactivated it tonight. I established a new account on gmail, which was [email protected] That's what I assume is the Twitter address.

My username is such and [email protected] such and such. I've tested the account by tweeting both from the computer and also from my Android. The tweets show up instantly on both devices. However, I asked a friend to try to tweet, and to try to receive my practice tweets, and she says it doesn't work. Nothing shows up under the search.

I search on Twitter for myself, and nothing comes up; it just says "nothing found."

can someone please just tell me how to get ground zero here? That is, how to get others to sign up for these tweets? And why my name won't turn up under search? And....IS the account number the [email protected]??

If this were true, would I have gotten this email? I know this isn't exactly what your site is for. I am just desperate to know whether to believe her or not. Can you help me?
 

Answer:Twitter account

This morning I get an email from twitter saying I need to confirm a twitter account with her name on it.Click to expand...

sounds like she has setup the twitter account and now has the confirmation.
BUT if shes not allowed on the internet , not sure why she would setup in your email address.

How old is she ?

she could easily goto a library or possibly School PC - set it all up there

Hi all. Just need some verification again lol. I hadn't logged into Twitter for a while and when I logged out, I found that the 'logout' page had changed. It used to be 'Now go mobile' with pics of all the phones/tablets you could Twitter on. The page I got was 'Take twitter with you' in black letters. Below that was 'New feature...now it's easier to keep up with conversations on twitter' in blue letter with a big blue screen next to it and below thatwas the 'Mobile apps for every device' with pictures in blue also. Could anyone tell me if this is a new log out page? The url is https: //about.twitter.com/products?Logged_out=1[on a Chrome browser. Sorry to be a pain, just like to check up on changes! Thanks.

Greetings!

I have a Twitter account, and maybe once to twice a week, I will get a notice that people are now following me, who have already followed me in the past. This sometimes happens when I get a new follower. Is this a Reminder? There's no evidence of spam or bots on my account. No unusual Tweets or activity. What's up with this?

I am able to connect to the site but nothing loads up. I tried today at work and it worked fine.

Is twitter not available for wp anymore?

Answer:Twitter is not working

Twitter is still available. You might try doing a soft-reset. That is, power off and power on the device. 9 times out of 10 that will fix an issue like this, because it's usually a memory corruption issue. It can happen to any device with any OS.

I recently moved home from univeristy, and on trying to load up twitter, was told it didn't work. ("Internet Explorer cannot display the page") About 6 weeks later this is still the case, although it has loaded fleetingly for say, a few hours, but won't stay like that. It will just 'load' for about 3-4 minutes on a white screen, then go to the above message.

At home I have a wireless network that my family use, and they can access twitter just fine on thier laptops, and indeed, I can connect too when I use my laptop on works wireless, or even when I connect back to the university VPN. It really does seem to be just my laptop, on just this network. How can I make twitter load?!!!

I'm using IE8, but the same problem occurs in Chrome. I have already tried deleating cookies, temp internet files, history, checking for all the updates, and checking twitters own help service. I'm running Windows 7 SP1 if that makes any difference to anything.

I'm running Windows 7 x64 & IE 8.
When visiting twitter.com I'm having no issues. However, when I go to the preview for the 'New' twitter.com, only the top banner loads. This same issue happens on my brewing clubs website at http://www.ccarhomebrewclub.com/.

I have tried upgrading to IE 9 Beta, but the problem follows me. I have also tried accessing both of these sites on another machine running XP SP3 & IE 8 -- same issue.

Both websites render fine in Mozilla Firefox.

I googled the issue with Twitter and I found their support forum with dozens of folks reporting this problem. No responses on how to fix it, however.

These sites worked fine recently. Was there some new secuirty fix that has caused this issue? Anyone?

-Thanks,

Answer:IE8 & New Twitter Site

Welcome to TSF

Possibly an add-on or update. It seems to be an IE8 issue. Nothing we can do until it gets fixed by Microsoft or Twitter if its on Twitters end. Did you try Compatibility View?

For the past two weeks (maybe a bit less), I haven't been getting Twitter notifications on my laptop. I've noticed that my notification settings within the app won't save either, when I try to set it to show message notifications in the corner for tweet, message, follower etc.
 
I also wasn't getting notifications for the Mail app but I uninstalled and reinstalled and that seemed to resolve that issue. But uninstalling Twitter hasn't helped this time.
 
All my notification settings in PC Settings are set to On, specifically for Twitter also.
 
I can't remember any changes I've made to my laptop.

Hi,

I would start with deleting your cookies and cache and see if that helps. If that doesn't help then you can have a look at your saved passwords and see if it saved it differently or delete the saved entry and enter it agian. If either of those don't work I can come up with something else to try.

Hey, so I downloaded the official Twitter App for Windows 8.... And it seems to be really slow, as in it does not update Tweets on the spot, its takes a few minutes and it just looks really basic.
So to my question, are there any Apps like Twitter but not the official one?
Thanks! :3

To refresh whenever you want, use the right-click button and press refresh (the option will be available on the lower right corner on the screen)

Twitter is introducing a new version of twitter ! This new design will be both on Twitter.com and mobile phones. TweetDeck is also being updated to make it consistent with this new version. The above shown new tabs are being added. The new design will be rolling out in coming weeks. But one can see the new design immediately on mobile.twitter.com, Twitter for iPhone, and Twitter for Android.
Twitter for iPad is not yet available.
Twitter says its just the Start, now they have a framework in place which will enable them to quickly build to help users connect with whatever is meaningful to them.

First, if there is a better forum to post this question, please let me know.

Suddenly, I am no longer able to access Twitter, not just my account, but all of Twitter.

This is happening in both Chrome and Firefox.

Two things happened recently:

I am only a user of the Internet service. The owner installed a new router or service, not sure which, and it's been blocking other sites. I believe it's called CleanRouter, at least, that's what appears instead of the website being blocked. I believe the service uses keywords to block sites.

The 2nd recent change is the most recent Win 10 update.

I'm able to access the other social media sites I use almost everyday: Linkedin, Facebook, Pinterest, Google +.

I can access Twitter on my Mobile phone (Android).

What should/can I do?
 

Answer:Cannot access Twitter

The owner installed a new router or service, not sure which, and it's been blocking other sites.Click to expand...

These are the key words. You need to speak with the owner to find out if they're filtering out requests for the Twitter servers.

I was on twitter when I got the BSOD. I've gotten this multiple times before and I assumed it was the same as always. Old display driver that needed updating. So I used the auto detect utility from the amd website to make sure my display driver is still updated. It says it is so I decided to go to the amd website to make sure my auto detect utility is updated. Last update is 9/2/2015 so I don't know what to make of it unless my display driver is corrupted and needs to be uninstalled and reinstalled. Although maybe this time it isn't the the display driver but I wouldn't be surprised if it was. If it is because I have an old display driver, is there another and better place where I can download the auto detect utility that's more accurate and updated? I don't know exactly how to find the appropriate display myself because I know there's many different kinds even for Windows 8.1 and I don't want to select the wrong kind. That's why I use auto detect. September seems like a long time ago and too long to not update.

Anyway here's the info attached for analysis. Thanks.

Well, they didn't, as far as I'm aware and I can't get rid of one of them. I've even tried restoring my pc to yesterday's date but it won't let me do that either.
