  • EvansTheCrime Jason Evans 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 🇪🇺 (@EvansTheCrime) reported

    You join me at the Kitchen Table of Crime where I am covering Cardiff Crown Court via Skype. Unfortunately due to the terrible sound quality I am unable to hear anything the defendant’s barrister is saying on his behalf.

  • JustinLChapman semasio (@JustinLChapman) reported

    @zoom_us Luckily there are countless other such services that don’t use the Covid virus as a pretext to refuse service. Skype, here I come!

  • RockardRoxy Roxy Rockard (@RockardRoxy) reported

    Aw man, I’m coming down now. But okay I guess, cuz I gotta Skype interview in the morning. Great trip tho🦋

  • DHYLCA David (@DHYLCA) reported

    @drloriandersen @kteabam Microsoft bought Skype, and I think is folding the Skype for Business service under the Microsoft Teams platform and brand.

  • theronster Qua-Ron-Tine (@theronster) reported

    @RattlingSkull Problem being most people don’t have a decent mic, but I wouldn’t use Zoom or Skype or anything that’s focused on video chatting. There are much better tools that prioritise audio over video, and do the recording locally on the participants machines.

  • HenloJojoBirb Jo Hiyoko 🥞🐣✨@gendice duet where ahuhu (@HenloJojoBirb) reported

    It sucks that my mic is broken, so i cant voice out my true concern in work lmao- that i need more man power in my team HAHAHAHA hanggang cry emoticon lang ako sa skype puchanHAHAHAHHA

  • fiddler_a Allyson Fiddler 🇪🇺 (@fiddler_a) reported

    This really has shocking implications. The rest of the world seems to be functioning fine on zoom/Skype/teams. This is a dreadful attempt to shut down democracy by thinning down representation.

    @LukoyeAtwoli @ahmednasirlaw @NelsonHavi @lawsocietykenya @ProfOjiendaTom @omwanza Virtual lawyering isn't effective, lawyers aren't motivational speakers. You have seen court via zoom/Skype 🙄. And in KE they are essential because of all the rights abuse that's been going on during the lock down 🙄.

  • BxnditBAD Bxndit (@BxnditBAD) reported

    Imagine stripping down on skype and forgetting you was on skype 😂😂 @cartermiyaa

  • hoychely Chely Esguerra (@hoychely) reported

    Also had lessons on running a webinar, haha. As always, teamwork makes the dream work. (Hola, @inepal, @ChristelleMARG6, Pam) Have back-channels for discussing sudden tech problems because there will be tech problems. If you're using Skype for business (have mercy), have (3/6)

    Im a nonthreatening feminist boy, come talk to me on Skype! talk to me on skype about your problems as a woman i sympathize i’m taking womens studies. I took women’s studies I know what ‘systematic’ means.

  • Paestrol Paoes TRol (@Paestrol) reported

    In-person meetings help foster relationships in a way that Skype or conference calls often do not.

  • thimbleknight Harley | cryptid. (@thimbleknight) reported

    I'm having so many issues with Discord i'm almost considering going back to skype. jesus christ I am desperate to be able to TALK to my friends.

  • Its_DNS_Sparky IPConfg_All (@Its_DNS_Sparky) reported

    @joeylogano You need to go talk to @KevinHarvick about internet service. KH had some smoking fast internet for his Skype interview where yours was like 2007 called and wanted their internet speed back. 😁😁Good luck, gentlemen. Thank you for what you do. Let’s go racing!

  • KateKehoe1 Kate Kehoe (@KateKehoe1) reported

    A very important A2J issue that I hope the province responds to: physical courthouses & child protection access centres have closed. In their place are Zoom or telephone court appearances and Skype access visits between parents & kids. Yet many parents are too poor to /1

  • johnnydocontra Johnny (@johnnydocontra) reported

    @wigbate @ZubyMusic Weird enough, Microsoft shut down MSN because wanted everyone on Skype. They simply do not understand his to manage messaging apps.

  • setzacat Setzer The Cat (@setzacat) reported

    @TialisaChapman Unfortunately I have yet to find anyone locally who knows how to treat my specific issues and my internet connection is bad and I can’t get Skype (or whatever) to work reliably to do out of state therapist (I tried) so I am kind of on my own

  • Borishu_Art Year of the Cowboy (presented by Emrys) (@Borishu_Art) reported

    @SkypeSupport Skype Customer service is a joke. I've been taking for 3 days with multiple agents about how I spontaneously got kicked out of my account that I've had for 8 years and their response each time has basically been -

  • helvetica_arial Hel (@helvetica_arial) reported

    Practically taken the whole of lockdown to help my parents install Skype on their computer through phone calls. But the best bit is when they finally found the install button they said they didn’t really want it anyway 🤣 Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree 🍎

  • mothpuppy morgan's happy & normal acct :) (@mothpuppy) reported

    I was on a Skype with my therapist while it was going down too and he said “you’re handling this very well!”

  • madanpanks Pankaj Madan (@madanpanks) reported

    @Wigapedia Microsoft bought Skype for business but not Skype and replaced it with Teams. The court service seem to have not subscribed yet to Teams. @StarLeafCo is best in my humble opinion. I’ve tried them all. Zoom is fancy but untrusted by many.

  • LangersBangers ✨Emily✨ (@LangersBangers) reported

    i think i broke my laptop by uninstalling skype send help :)))
