    @YouTube hi, my account was hacked and they changed the 2 step verification mail and phone number. Tried the recovery forms and it says that i can't do it because of failed attemps, can someone help me?

    @sgtcheryldorsey @YouTube Killer was in classroom for up to 40+ minutes or so - as parents begged law enforcement to go in. Last night on #CNN, you had no issue with that and defended the epic failure of law enforcement. I have you on DVR. Are you changing your misguided opinion today? An expert, no.

    @glennkirschner2 @YouTube And yet he walks around a free man . A corrupt government at work…

  • febatalhas Fe Batalha (@febatalhas) reported

    The amount of ads @YouTube plays during any video now has made it a terrible experience. Every minute there is an ad you cannot skip 😡

  • GunjaShah1 Gunja Shah (@GunjaShah1) reported

    @HyperVerse6 @YouTube First thing first- sort out withdrawal issues first!

  • wnrtjn - (@wnrtjn) reported

    @YouTube please fix the defective CSS and JS from your website that constantly force the scrollbar to be show. It's not a websites responsibility to mess with this. And it's ridiculous that you go out of your way to prevent custom CSS and JS to fix your wrongdoings.

    @simbachitando @YouTube You have no shame! How can you fight to remain in a foreign country. Go back home and fix Zimbabwean. Your days a numbered here

    @OSILVA69208918 @YouTube Wonder what was in the room that kept Tess Owens so distracted. She looked at her ceiling more than she did the camera during her "timeline" discussion. Maybe she has a bug problem. 🤷

    @BaddCompani @YouTube One issue voter. One issue. That’s it. Do you have a kid, do you have grandkids, nieces nephews, friends with kids? It’s for them. THEY CAN’T VOTE and they will grow up and ask you why didn’t you do anything?

  • Vox_Diaboli Eidan Rodriguez (@Vox_Diaboli) reported

    I'm still super bummed that my @YouTube account was suspended and no one from #youtube or @Google has been able to help me recover it or explain why it was suspended beyond asking me to send emails or my channel address which I'm unable to retrieve.

  • HobbsandTillie HKB (@HobbsandTillie) reported

    @BaddCompani @YouTube How can the GOP be numb to children being gunned down in their schools? How can money & power be more important? Who are we as a nation? Broken. Voting in droves is our only recourse. Mike is right. Enough is Enough. Silence is no longer an option.

  • rickfsmith Rick the Mook (@rickfsmith) reported

    @SirBobofAmbler @YouTube We have to do something. There is the problem of a black man with a gun no matter who he is would be considered a bad guy with a gun by white guys with guns and as we know to well what side the law is on.

  • direkneed Direkneed (@direkneed) reported

    @YouTube you know that issue you had with sections of the YouTube app missing, like music, subscriptions etc? Well it's happened again but only affecting subscription tab. Mostly android related TV apps it's affecting. Yes I reset this and that. Done it all.

    @MikoMoby @YouTube @EmmaLBriant I have some chemical sensitivities/ neck issues - both dull senses/comprehension impact reading. Before fell hit my head just b4 covid started was reading more. That made neck issues worse. Bits + pieces of brain shut down/off line temp periodically. Ptosis=OPMD no big deal.

  • nikhil_lamech Nikhil Lamech (@nikhil_lamech) reported

    @YouTube you seriously gotta fix this. People are creating accounts and posting the same reel every few minutes asking you to go to their bio and click on a link. This **** is getting out of hand!

  • and_ents Faeries and Ents - Comics, books, and stuff! (@and_ents) reported

    @PipersAdventure @Smilingbandito @YouTube I'll be going over how to create cells, how to use the keyframe functions, and making a 2D camera. Which is essentially the main thing you have to understand on a basic level to get 90% of all your work done :)

  • NathanD34086548 Nathan Drake (@NathanD34086548) reported

    @YouTube where can I send my request for help? I already put my request on the forum and I got a link to an answer that only tells me that I have to get in contact with YouTube but no link or email

  • Vaudree2 Vaudree (@Vaudree2) reported

    @MikoMoby @YouTube @EmmaLBriant I gave up wearing contacts a about 10+ years ago. When I wore them I could see the TV, when I didn't wear them I could see the computer screen. Have a bit of trouble with very tiny writing - think the screens work differently on cell phones than laptop. ptosis not influence.

  • KillCo77143 🇺🇦 KillCo Whiskey Musings 🖖😎🥃🏳️‍🌈 🇺🇦 (@KillCo77143) reported

    @awk_ashleigh That's the weird part about drinking whiskey on @YouTube , I get to sample things FAR outside my price range. At the very least I can give my personal opinions about them. I honestly feel price doesn't always mean quality when it comes to whiskey. 🖖😎🥃


    @Apanage21 @YouTube Not our problem...!!!
