    TWO INCHES OF CLEAVAGE!!!! @Microsoft @Skype @SkypeSupport - on a woman with NO BREASTS this wouldn’t be an issue! A shirtless man wouldn’t be an issue! THIS IS ******* BULLSHIT. THIS IS DISCRIMINATION. GIVE ME MY ACCOUNT BACK.

  • sayheyraye a very evenhanded maiden (@sayheyraye) reported

    I am so frustrated with @Skype. An old account I have not regularly used was hacked recently. Despite weeks of trying @skype will not delete my data/account so that the hackers stop making charges. I have made requests under the CCPA but Skype won’t fix the problem.

    Just me, or does FaceTime need serious work? No matter where I am or how good my service is it always lags or cuts out. What’s the deal @Apple? Is it time to go back to @Skype? It’s 2022 this shouldn’t be happening every time.

  • AmaanX5A Sheikh Amaan Asghar (@AmaanX5A) reported

    @Skype It’s the second I’m tweeting @SkypeSupport for a serious issue I’m facing but no one is responding.

  • AmuAlan Amu.Alan (@AmuAlan) reported

    @Skype What has happened to the service? Connection is near impossible these days.😫😫

  • anthonydavenpod Anthony Luka Davenport (@anthonydavenpod) reported

    @Skype is terrible, bring back Windows Live Messenger

  • margaritafinkel Margarita (@margaritafinkel) reported

    @Skype I cannot access my Skype for 2 months. My tel & email attached to skype & i should gain skype back though them but no emails/sms get send to them so i can re-access. Clearly there is technical issue. Ive been trying to get hep but no-one replies. Its time you address it

  • SuzHepinstall7 Suz Hepinstall (@SuzHepinstall7) reported

    @katycgrubb @Skype I was recommended to @Quick_restore. He was able to recover my locked account in less than an hour. He is legit and highly recommended for the service. Go contact him now to get your account back

  • MelMajoros MelMajoros (@MelMajoros) reported

    @Skype your virtual assistant didnt help me please DM me, you deactivated my account for no reason

  • LilMissAsante Mizz Asante (@LilMissAsante) reported

    @Skype what is going on with your app? Zero customer service support just endless links to community blogs Unhelpful

  • PuppaDukes Puppa Dukes (@PuppaDukes) reported

    @Skype your service is quite literally dog sh*t

  • yourtoyrobot Tipsy Bob Ross (@yourtoyrobot) reported

    @Skype You guys are completely misunderstanding the issue. There is no troubleshooting because it a purposeful design choice made by Skype. Not a bug, glitch, or program error

  • yourtoyrobot Tipsy Bob Ross (@yourtoyrobot) reported

    @Skype Open Skype on PC. Within it, open an image. You'll see Close Image X immediately under the Close Skype X. It's not a glitch or bug, it's an intentional UI placement and it's horrible.

  • BbBojangle BB Bojangle (@BbBojangle) reported

    @Skype @Microsoft Worst customer Service ever. I submitted for my account to be deleted. It wasn’t. Now I’ve been hacked and can’t get into my account to “re-delete” because the “Recovery” system thinks I’m not the owner of the account. So, so stupid.

  • andrejonker Andre 🐦 (@andrejonker) reported

    I have been fighting with @Microsoft support for so long about a @Skype number that still doesn’t work. With every interaction, they claim human error, but I have other numbers that work fine. They basically just took my money and gave me a fake number. I have now given up.

  • lilygrozeva Lily Grozeva (@lilygrozeva) reported

    @Skype 's login process is like the service telling you - please, don't use us.

  • JustCocoDupree cocodupree (@JustCocoDupree) reported

    @Skype Hello, I bought a Skype number through the Skype app. But I can’t tell where to record a voicemail greeting. Can you help? Thank you!

  • ttly_reasonable totallyreasonable (@ttly_reasonable) reported

    @Skype Either help me with my captcha, or we’re moving our entire department to @SlackHQ.

  • prairiefiremktg Wes Owen (@prairiefiremktg) reported

    @Microsoft @Skype why am I getting charged for something that was cancelled? Why is in next to impossible to get service?

  • LetMeEdit Lorraine O'Donovan (@LetMeEdit) reported

    @Skype you have taken my credit again and I need help reactivating it, please help.

  • froddd Fred (@froddd) reported

    Every time I want to @skype my mum I have to first log into her computer with @TeamViewer to reinstall Skype because it doesn’t start. Today I had to call her first to help her reinstall TeamViewer. Those companies are not making technology helpful.
