    @NYTnickc @maggieNYT @GovChristie Surprised they didn’t cut his mic and blame Skype for a connection issue

  • guacamollyw GuacaMolly (Fr0styBitcH) (@guacamollyw) reported

    Just had a flashback to when I first signed up for Skype and I thought it would be funny to put up a message "feelin' spicy" (???) for some reason and I couldn't take it down. I had meetings with that up. Still not sure if anyone saw it but my face feels spicy thinking about it.

  • zachregnier zacc (@zachregnier) reported

    Also instead of asking him to write everything down you could have invited him to an interview over zoom or skype.

  • Kikikumings17 Kiki Kumings (@Kikikumings17) reported

    Ok i hate doing this but if you book a skype i point blank outright refuse to do ANY sort of kiddy based role play even if its call me "daddy" in that way. I find it ******* disgusting & you need SERIOUS ******* help if that is what you like!!! Break these rules & i will block u!

  • The_SteelWolf Lord Steel of SnootBoopington (@The_SteelWolf) reported

    @Dragoneer Guess this means discord and Skype are ******. Any other service that allows users to post it host images also completely impossible now because someone will share porn on it.

  • DoloresGypsy Gypsy Dolores (@DoloresGypsy) reported

    @AdrianneSpring @acvalens @MistressSnowPhD Like with the guy whom I refused a free cam chat on Skype and I rejected his scam trick that we would start first and then he would pay, lol and he was so angry that he went and reported my account for pornography and they shut it down.

  • younggg_bull 25 (@younggg_bull) reported

  • henchgirl_comic Kristen Gudsnuk (@henchgirl_comic) reported

    I didn’t even manage to pare down my wardrobe, a real softball goal. Nor did I Skype my family every week, pay estimated taxes on time, give up Diet Coke, or work out. Other goals were “go to Italy” (absolutely crushed... stupid Covid) and “finish Making Friends 3” (I’m so close)

  • Queenbellaaxox Bella✨ (@Queenbellaaxox) reported

    Feeling a bit run down, no skype sessions tonight. Send silently to your queen 👸🏻

  • JamesfromDFW James Cook (@JamesfromDFW) reported

    @paulhardware What’s the minimum speed to run a Skype voice call. Switching over to T-Mobile home internet that’s running 14-17mbs down in the current position. (Trying to find a better location for the box).

  • SalesPartTime SalesJobs (@SalesPartTime) reported

    I'm currently based outside Europe and work essentially in the french market. How can I get a french virtual number ? Roaming is extremely expensive. How much it costs ? - Skype seems to provide this kind of service but I'm not able to do so. #sales

  • soyoprincess DOTSM. Standing with ✡️ (@soyoprincess) reported

    So. Dad’s care home is closed due to a covid outbreak. Wonder how that got in when us relatives were not trusted to go in? Residents lucky enough to be ground floor can have “window visits”. Not safe to bring 3rd floor residents down tho. No Skype face to face Xmas either.

  • volcanocrowe ghost (@volcanocrowe) reported

    @SkypeSupport I need help. I bought an international calls plan and when I try calling, it says "blocked account." Why is this happening? I can't really use it, so it means I've lost my money.

  • Rtmiss ❤️RTmiss - Stupid Christmas Day Baby🇳🇿🌈☕🍰 (@Rtmiss) reported from Christchurch City, Canterbury

    @GrumpyYetAmusin @cherylm1927 I'm worried that my cousin will have to spend Christmas alone. He was supposed to be going to his brothers place but that's not looking possible any more. We've scheduled a bunch of Skype calls to family in England to help maintain sanity.

  • Ianpalm_er Ian Palmer (@Ianpalm_er) reported

    @slhutch1980 @simon_duchess He could the rest of the nation and use zoom Facebook portal skype or any other technology we've had to embrace unless ee get a nation why power outage just to top everything off.
