    yo someone down at Spotify might get fired jsjdjdj

  • sebastienLavoie Sébastien Lavoie (@sebastienLavoie) reported

    @SpotifyCares And please just don't give me the official PR line: “The reason is because less than 1% of users reach it. The current limit ensures a great experience for 99% of users instead of an "OK" experience for 100%.” I've googled the issue first.

  • tiedtaygether louuuuu 💛 (@tiedtaygether) reported

    you guys not to start a conspiracy or anything but I was listening to a podcast on spotify and had my phone sitting down, not touching it, wasn’t talking, and my podcast cut off and Old Town Road started playing. podcast was not over and I don’t have it on any of my playlists

  • ThisIsVickiRose Victoria Rose (@ThisIsVickiRose) reported

    @SpotifyCares Problem started this morning, couldn't play music, and I updated the app this afternoon but it didn't help. (Samsung S7 btw)

  • kendra_cotton Kendra D. Cotton (@kendra_cotton) reported

    @SpotifyCares I can no longer login to my account. I have a family plan. I was chatting with a support specialist this morning because I've some issues with unauthorized access that has caused havoc with my account.

  • kendra_cotton Kendra D. Cotton (@kendra_cotton) reported

    @Spotify I cannot login to my account. It says that my email address is not associated with an account. I've been having issues with the account being compromised.

  • yedips39 Brittany (@yedips39) reported

    @Spotify Part 2: Turns out the app just updated. So, #changeitback it’s terrible. Sincerely - I think everyone

  • merrichristi Merri Christi (@merrichristi) reported

    @spotifycares I can’t log in. I get the message password and name does not match. I did a clean reinstall and same problem continues. I had an account for years until yesterday, then something happened. I used FB to log in usually.

  • patosupershow Pato Gómez (@patosupershow) reported

    @SpotifyCares need help with a premium feature not working

  • _im_the_supreme Sam manela🦋#FREEBRITNEY (@_im_the_supreme) reported

    @SpotifyCares It's not the look that's the problem . It's the fact that I cant listen to my music on a music app.

  • SCJacka Sally Jacka (@SCJacka) reported

    TFW you're barely paying attention to the ok-ish love song Spotify is playing an and then suddenly the line "just two broken souls clinging on to Jesus" happens and you nope out so flippin' hard

  • lead_water what (@lead_water) reported

    @SpotifyCares please add back the recently played on the new update it is the only problem. it is such a shit update solely because extended recent played is gone please add it back as soon as possible it is not only and eye sore but also inconvenient

  • foxtromeodelta Firna (@foxtromeodelta) reported

    Hey @SpotifyCares, pro-tip: don't "fix" what's not broken.

  • bholcomb Ben Kenobi (@bholcomb) reported

    @H1pH0pSaves Truthfully, I was exposed to Spotify first(back when u had to get on a list to get the service ) And Spotify has held me down for 9 summers now

  • SquadCouch Couch (@SquadCouch) reported

    Holy shit this Spotify update is genuinely one of the most garbage updates I've ever seen in my entire life. It does nothing but make the service nothing short of obnoxious to navigate. No need to "fix" what isn't broken. @Spotify @SpotifyCares

  • fraserlovestans (K)ate ᵖᵖᵍᶜ (@fraserlovestans) reported

    was just listening to X and the Falling Down came on. u can’t do that Spotify.

  • SpotifyBrands Spotify for Brands (@SpotifyBrands) reported from Cannes, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur

    We hear something going down at the Spotify Beach here at Cannes...😉 Tweet the scoop using #SpotifyCannes

  • oceanicplanets ANIMAL CROSSING AHHHHHHHH🌈 (@oceanicplanets) reported

    I hate the new spotify layout, its terrible

  • francoberry Andrew Francomb (@francoberry) reported

    @SpotifyCares Just gave it a shot, same issue - my playlists are in custom order correctly, but are jumbled up when adding a song to a playlist :/

  • nikkijang63 ~°nιĸĸι°~ (@nikkijang63) reported

    I'm listening to RPM on Spotify and just thought it was too loud and turned it down and then internally yelled at myself for disrespecting SF9 by turning it down. So I turned it back up so imma probs go deaf but it's for SF9 so it's fine

  • jkancko Julian Kancko (@jkancko) reported

    @SpotifyCares the new update is terrible. I can no longer search my library by artist. Terrible update.

  • cosentinglo jawn olerud (@cosentinglo) reported

    apple removed every tax season episode. spotify holding it down tho ✊

  • drewsonix Drew White (@drewsonix) reported

    @sarumbear From Now albums, to iTunes, Spotify revenue & shops there's arguably a commercial consequence if BBC decides to offer exhaustive, uninterrupted selections of most popular hits - for free - with zero licensing overheads beyond their blanket deal (different for any other service)

  • Stryker305gi Gioser (@Stryker305gi) reported

    @PhilipHue please fix Mac hue app and Spotify app not working when streaming to sonos speaker. It 2019 this is a smart home must.

  • islandirie Lilysaurus Rex (@islandirie) reported

    Damn, I’ve really been sleeping on @thisteeks 😩 Just heard the Spotify discography and now seeing the error of my ways. Never gonna miss a track here on out lol

  • Michelle_C22 in a nutchelle (@Michelle_C22) reported

    @mikeyjco I thought my Spotify was broken lol i’m so mad

  • f8f3b4ed5e224d2 Tala X9 (@f8f3b4ed5e224d2) reported

    @SpotifyCares This year, has been nothing but problems, from never receiving my Google home mini, to sabotaging your own app, I'm staring to lose faith in your company

  • f8f3b4ed5e224d2 Tala X9 (@f8f3b4ed5e224d2) reported

    @SpotifyCares You have removed ease of access to the music I pay you guys to litsen to. There are other apps out there that offer the same type of service, better in comparison now, for similar price. I have been using Spotify for 3+ years now, and have never considered canceling.

  • spncrhkm Spencer (@spncrhkm) reported

    @SpotifyCares Sorry if I wasn't clear. NPR publishes every hour, but Daily Drive wasn't grabbing the latest one. Issue was seen across multiple devices/accounts.

  • jamesduggan JD (@jamesduggan) reported

    @SpotifyCares With that in mind, I guess it’s not too big of an issue, but maybe something to look into 😁

  • Batmanhoeft Alex Hoeft (@Batmanhoeft) reported

    Me: *deletes Facebook account* Spotify: “Hey buddy. I’m just going to call you 126824493 from here on out if you don’t mind.” Me: “I do mind, but I guess I can’t stop you.” Spotify: “Thanks 126824493. Enjoy your $10/mo. service.”

  • GFDegris DEGRIS (@GFDegris) reported

    I know it’s an old song, but it was taken down from Spotify a while ago. Just look at the cover though

  • blink_topaz I miss blackpink (@blink_topaz) reported

    @clearwhistle @BLACKPINKFANNNN @chartsblackpink I can’t use YouTube on my phone, it overheats. Which is why I have it streaming all day on Spotify instead. I’m still helping stream so there’s really no problem

  • Jediproxy Resistance Tech Tate 🌈 (@Jediproxy) reported

    hey @Spotify someone hacked my account and changed my login info please answer my email

  • k0d0nnell Kelly (@k0d0nnell) reported

    I asked Spotify customer service to help me switch my account to my birthname and they're being being helpful but it's taking ~48 hours to transfer and I need music please now

  • PurBldPrincess Sarah Rose Mathison (@PurBldPrincess) reported

    @Spotify 1/2 Found a new issue I hate. Because the alphabetical tab on the side is gone if I want to search for a certain album I can’t just type in the letter the album starts with to search the albums starting with that letter.

  • Earth2Ash Ash (@Earth2Ash) reported

    @MarcoPolo2293 @Spotify I’ve been vested in Spotify for years, have Tidal as well - so I didn’t feel the need to have Apple. I like Spotify but whoever’s been managing their “new” rap playlists this past year has been terrible.

  • satinluna eve 🕯 (@satinluna) reported

    @hypnoteizedd skdjdj i blame spotify++ for not working no more 😔

  • Lambykinz Lamb (@Lambykinz) reported

    @SpotifyCares Hey, I actually just talked with a Spotify rep for awhile and unfortunately I had to reinstall the app to solve the issue, which means all of my downloaded songs were deleted. I'm pretty disappointed that there wasn't any other fix to this issue that just came up randomly.

  • 8_BitGirl Kayleigh Wingate (@8_BitGirl) reported

    My #Netflix account just got hacked. The fact that services like Netflix and Spotify STILL don’t have 2-factor authentication is terrible. 👎

  • sssaaarraaahhh Sarah🌞 (@sssaaarraaahhh) reported

    @bigsullyt @chicagolucy @bassnectar Ok maybe a coincidence but I noticed on my Spotify it undownloaded all of the nectar albums I had too 😩 my commute has no cell service so I rely on downloads!!

  • thatslife4me Christoph Bohm (@thatslife4me) reported from Münster, Nordrhein-Westfalen

    Spotify‘s presentation of classical music is really terrible, but I like that it offers music across the whole spectrum. I don’t think a classical-only app would work for me.

  • 3sixrecordings 36 (@3sixrecordings) reported

    @intldebris Honestly, I doubt there's even much crossover between Spotify users and Bandcamp listeners anyway. If someone has a monthly subscription to a service, they rarely go outside the platform, in my experience. I see them as totally different demographics, personally.

  • Shadysense1995 Book of Ryan is a classic (@Shadysense1995) reported

    @mzwhizz2019 @Eminem Spotify is an acceptable marker I don’t need to ask which streaming service you use to use it as a marker. Also it’s interesting that you say know your audience after talking to me a life long fan like I just found em last year

  • thejameschatham gay panic (@thejameschatham) reported

    just spend a good two minutes trying to turn down the volume on my laptop and getting frustrated before i realized that i was listening to spotify on my phone

  • heatherhorcrux america's ass. (@heatherhorcrux) reported

    @hardnougat I was just thinking I could turn the music down and just play something in spotify instead...

  • sebschmidtmusic Sebastian Schmidt (@sebschmidtmusic) reported

    I tend to despise Twitter rants, butI justify this with the fact that I used to love @Spotify, but now due to a monumentally misguided UI change I'm seriously considering switching service or even returning to the days of ripping from CDs and playing MP3s

  • SkewsMe Kevin J. Crosby (@SkewsMe) reported

    I lied down at 6:30 last night for a nap and woke up at noon. That was after listening to hours of "Mafia" podcasts on @Spotify exhausting that 3-pound, 20-watt neural network between my ears.

  • OfTheTrees of the trees (@OfTheTrees) reported

    I loaded local files into Spotify as well & there are still gaps. Zero gaps within the audio files themselves. I’m assuming it’s an issue with the programs having to load larger lossless files but I want to cover all of the possible issues I’ll encounter once I’m ready to release

  • FemNitti Fem&Nitti (@FemNitti) reported

    @SpotifyCares Hey I’ve having problems connecting spotify to my facebook account. Facebook account don’t have any other spotify account linked to it, but still it won’t connect when trying to connect with the spotify app.

  • ashermuldoon Asher Muldoon (@ashermuldoon) reported

    @themaineband @Spotify Homepage SCHMOME-page! No need for them to fix what ain’t broken...

  • MHegs77 Matt Hegarty (@MHegs77) reported

    @Spotify new Android update UI is terrible

  • Britt201293 Brittany (@Britt201293) reported

    @SpotifyCares I’m having issues logging in to check my premium status. My app is acting strange even though my payment came out. When I go to reset my password it tells me my email isn’t associated with an account, but I’m getting emails sent about my account. Please help!

  • aNYthing24 Nafi (@aNYthing24) reported

    @SpotifyCares My Android app randomly updated yesterday and I have several issues. 1. All my Liked Songs are now out of order 2. I can no longer easily search my Liked Songs 3. The app itself is quite laggy and freezes up a lot Hope these were not intentional.

  • John18904854 John (@John18904854) reported

    @SpotifyCares Gimme back my library!! I'm not sorting through 9500+ songs to put them back in order when it was a terrible idiotic decision on your part to do so in the first place

  • ABlueEyedMolly molls (@ABlueEyedMolly) reported

    The main reason why I’m asking is because I get Apple Music f r e e now with my phone plan so I want to see if I want to cancel my Spotify subscription. I’ve been using it for years but am open to trying a new streaming service.
