1. Link to Tweet - fer crying out loud, is it really that difficult to copy and paste. No not clicking

on your link. Tired of this.

4. I'm not sure I understand your issue.

If you copy and paste a link to a tweet in a post. DU automatically fetches the tweet.

See the post in Announcements about this.

https://www.democraticunderground.com/10138150

If you don't want to click my link the post is in the announcements group titled "You can now embed Tweets directly into DU posts"

19. Quite a number of DU members have Twitter blocked at work or other issues with it.


Copy-pasting the text is a courtesy.

21. Ahh ... Maybe that's the case

It was unclear if that was the case, since the post said "No not clicking on your link." That seemed to indicate something else was the issue.

20. It is a fallacy to imagine that one's own experience is what everyone experiences.


Twitter is blocked at work or in other ways for quite a few DU members.

Can't view the embedded tweets or get to Twitter unless I'm on my phone or at home.

7. Is twitter blocked at your workplace?

That's the case in some offices. You can bookmark it and see it later at home.

11. I got my first computer when I was 53.


I will admit that after I retired, and could spend more time on it, my learning curve really took off.

22. Am I there yet?:)

We worked on computers at work, but the internet is a whole different ball game.

My Son insisted I needed a computer when I retired. Bought it,hooked it up for me, then became upset because he could never contact me.😛 Remember AOL dial up?

32. Slow!

I once went with Direct TV. They had DSL. After Roadrunner it was horrible. Back to Spectrum, but am still paying less than Time Warner. That is not saying much.

33. And that's another thing

In some areas, you are limited in available carriers/providers, which only incentivizes them get creative with their rates.

34. Spectrum gave great rates

After they bought Time Warner. I first took internet and phone pkg. $37. They were buying out contracts on Direct. Then came the $99 deal,all 3 for one year.

Then you need a little IT assistance.

12. With Firefox, B click on the "tweet" and it should give you option to "view image".



If you are running Mircrosoft/Explorer, I can't help with that.

24. I use Chrome and the tweet always opens in the post

but I have to wait a few seconds for it to show up. When I was less patient, I clicked on the link... then discovered it actually will work (unless your settings are different than mine).

30. I use Opera as a backup browser, it gets weird at times.


Won't play videos...YouTube, anything, etc. So I have to link copy and use Firefox for vids.

Been meaning to look that up for ages now.

I finally figured out why Trump is orange: he's a combination of cowardly yellow, and communist red.

29. I figured that the explanation...

...was something along these lines. I actually thought it was going to be that he started out Red but turned orange after those hookers peed on him.
