I'm on Twitter as well. That could be it. Twitter wants to see a login cookie of a user before it serves up the Tweet.

I am not "ON" twitter, or any other phone based communication, other than texting. But, I did have to register with twitter in order to view tweets posted here.

It irritates me that every Tom, Dick, and Harry wants me to download their app, to conduct business there. I will NOT conduct business on a teeny-tiny phone with a small screen and keys. That's what my 15-inch laptop is for....

My desktop, using edge, views tweets. I am not on twitter, but it may be able to mine information from a google, FB or other account? (probably a business account). I assume its just a 'pay to play' deal. Twitter demands marketable data or you don't get to see the tweets?

I don't recall what I had to give them to enroll, but it was not too onerous, IIRC??

I've never understood how these smartphones ever caught on. It does a thousand things, but all of them poorly. It's not even a good phone. You need Trump sized fingers to type anything. It does lie down nice an flat on my desk though which makes it easy not to pick it up when I go out.

I have an iPhone 12 Mini with a Quadlock case which fits in my back pocket or on my bike; it's very tough. It has a huge screen for its size and an all day battery. The Mini is paired with an Apple Watch SE.

As a phone, it's excellent. However, I usually use AirPods or ear buds. I also rarely make phone calls but instead use WhatsApp or other messaging systems. As a camera, it's ridiculously good for my needs. I can tether my laptop to it and work anywhere.

Along with the watch, Apple Fitness+Health have been great. I often call one of my brothers when I'm out for a long walk closing my rings. Or listen to podcasts or Youtube videos. ErgData is a fitness tracker for indoor rowing. Strava, ....

Maps are great but if you're going out of cell connectivity you should pre-load them.

I use Apple Pay all the time. The ratio of Apple Pay to cash or credit card is at least 10 to 1, and most of that 1 is Tacos Sinaloa. My Clipper Card and Covid vaccination proof are in my Apple Wallet as is my AAA proof of insurance.

I draw the line on Facebook and Twitter which I rarely use anymore anyways. They're not on the phone.

I haven't had a land line in 25 years. But damn, my iPhone is useful. Is is worth the $640 I paid? Yeah, it is.

Kind of like the expensive FitBit watch Missus BB gave me. I reckon it does everything an Apple watch does, but I have no interest in going down that road. I do look at my number of steps and calories burned, but so what? I have an iPhone for all that other stuff and disagree with you on that point. I wear my $25 Walmart Casio to bed as it has a working alarm and pushbutton to check the time. The FitBit has no alarm sound, just a weak shaking buzz that wouldn't wake anyone up on the quietest of mornings!

I haven't worn a watch since I retired nine years ago. Let it go, Billy.

search for the old,profile, Hold on the picture with an ipad. Add to photos. Interestingly, the dog 1 account was active Sunday.

If this isn’t dog, dog knows and thinks it’s funny, Otherwise he socked himself. That seems too diabolical for dog to think up.

I do believe the 2.0 had that avatar, first. Then, the old ID added it.

Besides, he has shared enough of his condescension for Baltimore City (in general) and Baltimore City teachers (specifically) to convince me.

No can do, but thanks for the encouragement!

I am not retired from managing rental properties, so a watch to be on time for appointments is a necessary requirement. No plan to retire from this responsibility, as it's not that big a commitment of time. And watch is also needed for freaking Dr's appointments!!

I have a timepiece in the form of a cell phone. Wristwatches spoil my tan. :)

Trump could prove himself as a great POTUS but elected not. The people of Puerto are still feeling the effects of him being a clown

Puerto Rico still reels nearly five years after Hurricane Maria​

What a good leader,
