    @spknonfiction I got the wrong email signed up because I was doing Apple Music which I preferred but it kept syncing to iTunes and making my 2020 album say 2006 so I dropped them problem fixed. So I don’t know but still do it. What is ideal is getting on playlists that’s what I want to do

  • krhodes0521 Katherine Rhodes (@krhodes0521) reported

    @sarahmirk Audible/libro.fm, Pandora (lullaby stations w/out loud ads...trust me), streaming service or iTunes/Amazon digital gift cards, meal service subscription, wireless earbuds/headphones, dry shampoo, nice water bottle for nursing moms, and a strict no-thank you note rule

  • Bryandvlmck Bryan Devlaemynck (@Bryandvlmck) reported

    @iTunes can’t purchase music or apps in Belgium 😔 iTunes is down

  • jackamo52 Jackamo52 (@jackamo52) reported

    @BarbraLovesBG It’s dropped waaaaaaaaaay down now. It’s not even in the top 40 on country iTunes Charts. The highest it got was #3.

  • bbamok baranduin briggs (@bbamok) reported

    @Queenofthe80s When I had Spotify issues I reached out on twitter and was told there was nothing that could be done. When I had a computer issue with iTunes, Apple support was there on the phone with me, figuring out how to rebuild the path to my music.

  • ArifHasanNFL Arif Hasan, solstice-liker ❄️ (@ArifHasanNFL) reported

    @frazermattd @TheBenNatan I swear I'm going to get this iTunes issue fixed I'm sorry

  • Shotlycrue Joe Johnson (@Shotlycrue) reported

    I absolutely hate the mandatory switch to @youtubemusic. Not only did a big chunk of my music not transfer (and I can't go back to Google Music to retrieve it) but, I have to put up with ads while listening to music that I own?!?! Absolutely terrible. Will be moving to iTunes.

  • daveomahony David O'Mahony (@daveomahony) reported

    Would love to watch @ThePhoneCall as it's been recommended as a 'must watch' for a film I'm working on... anyone know where I can stream or download it? It's not on iTunes anymore and doesn't seem to be on any other service? @DanHubbard ??

  • Jiikunsan Jii (@Jiikunsan) reported

    @beingdumbiseasy @PoorlyAgedStuff not just music. ipod classic wasnt 100% locked down by itunes awful syncing **** so you could also use it as an portable harddrive. in a time where usb sticks were no larger than 2gb and normal externals needed a power source, this was amazing.

  • Joanna_Wilson Joanna Wilson (@Joanna_Wilson) reported

    @iTunes your customer service process is shockingly terrible. You say you’ll call back and you don’t. You put me on hold for ages, I have to reexplain the problem each time even though there’s a case no, and now I have to wait 3-4 days until someone probably doesn’t call me again

  • SteveoWars The Book of Steveo (@SteveoWars) reported

    @theofficetv I bought the whole series for $29.99 on iTunes so I never have to use your crappy overpriced service.

  • msqueenofpop ari stan🤍 (@msqueenofpop) reported

    reminder that 3435 & positions could drop, streams are lowering, apple music/Itunes are going down etc pls stream 🤍 (retweet)

  • pez814 Michael Weckler (@pez814) reported

    @Bkstg Is anyone monitoring this account? My wife is having issues with the Arimoji app she purchased on the Itunes App store this morning. Would someone please help either helping us get the app to work, or a refund. Thank you

  • paulrpotts thor eating shawarma (@paulrpotts) reported

    This (apparently?) meant that iTunes was attempting to look for the server using IPV6 and silently failing and (apparently?) never trying to use IPV4. Nothing in our network is really configured to use IPV6. But apparently that was the thing that was broken.

  • callmexbackbtw CEO Zhang's real girl friend (@callmexbackbtw) reported

    We don't deserve Yixing's albums We're terrible on itunes & spotify 😔

  • pa5in Pasi (@pa5in) reported

    @AppleSupport why would you disable AppStore and iTunes account and not know why and force to start a new account? Asking for a friend. You must know what is your problem. You disabled the account. @tim_cook

  • kpedraja Kevin Pedraja (@kpedraja) reported

    @NatGeo Can you please fix your account sign-in? And make it persistent? I’ve been a subscriber for years through Apple/iTunes and I have to sign in to read an article every damn time. Worse, your log-in options don’t include Apple subcscriptions. It’s maddening.

  • BureauRussell Fredward Bureau-Russell (@BureauRussell) reported

    @verge I will never use anything but Apple TV+ as a streaming service anything else I own on iTunes 1017 movies 247 TV shows

  • CovingtonAlsina Ann Alsina (@CovingtonAlsina) reported

    @eyeonannapolis Dropbox, iTunes, PayPal, cash sharing apps... so many password protected practices that would prove a challenge for someone to track down once we are gone. Store this info in one place, safely locked away and tell your kids/significant other how to access in emergency

  • AlreadyCensored 🇺🇸 AlreadyCensored (@AlreadyCensored) reported

    @HardRadio Sub to pay $. Link buried as **** on web. Setup $5 a mo. looks amateur. PayPal. User/Pass 1 field on website. WTF? Never able login iTunes/iOS app. **** setup. Cancelled sub. Enjoy $5. Fix or no $. 3rd party radio app now. Hard pay u $. Make EZ u get $. U want? #FFS

  • saikogrrl Saikogrrl (@saikogrrl) reported

    @Apple how is it that Steam and every other online service allows gifting from one country to another, but iTunes has yet to figure this out? Region specific electronic gift cards is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard of, and so inconvenient for customers.

  • Digital_Lanre Lanre Adams* (@Digital_Lanre) reported

    @wandehoover @iamdannymaine Another option. Look for iTunes card to buy, change your phone address to USA, load your iTunes card and solve your Nigerian bank issue with Apple.

  • iamyun2354 ユン (@iamyun2354) reported

    Apple sucks *** I have nothing but problems with them be it the products, the partnered products like nintendo, or ****** itunes store ****. cant do aaaannnyyyything with apple.

  • PerspectiveRoll RyanP is ready for Impeachment 2:Electric Boogaloo (@PerspectiveRoll) reported

    @LeoPelley I typically do CDs, but I have not had any problems moving around mp3s from Amazon. iTunes sucked. I bought some songs I can't play or burn or anything theough them.

  • WheelRob10 WheelRob (@WheelRob10) reported

    @nickandmore When it was on iTunes, the Detention episode from S3 had some bad transfer errors during a couple scenes. It looks like that episode was re-encoded error-free for CBS AA. But another episode that had errors, Sibling Revile-ry, did not have them fixed.

  • charles_blafon Charles Blafon✨🤴🏾 (@charles_blafon) reported

    Connecting impossible with cable from iPhone to Mac. Impossible to install iTunes on MacOS Big Sur. What’s problem 😞

  • wombacher12 Zack Wombacher (@wombacher12) reported

    One of the biggest problems I have is that I can’t get any Garth brooks songs on iTunes and the radio in my car doesn’t have a CD player so my cd’s just sit in my room tons of great songs not being listened to
