Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Twitter has caused the problem. They have decided to work on a new API. You can see full info at the link I provided. As a result of Twitter's decisions, connections were failing, so Thunderbird had no choice but to disable. Full conversation at the bug link explaining how they tried to fix, but cannot do anything because of Twitter.

In Thunderbird, if you pretend you want to add a Chat account, Menu app icon > New > Chat account The window that opens does not display a 'Twitter' chat network option.

How do you mean "a Twitter message"? Do you mean you received an email regarding your twitter account, or you received an email notification from Twitter, regarding a direct message that someone sent to you on Twitter? Please clarify.

Good morning, Mary! I hope you are having a nice start to your Friday. I understand how these issues may be upsetting you and I want to assure you that you have reached the right team to get this looked at today. To understand the current situation, your internet is working well right now? However, you were experiencing some issues yesterday where it was unable to connect? -MMB

7:41 AM

Hi, Mary! I truly apologize for the delay but I appreciate your time and patience! I know you have had question about this and suffered intermittent connectivity for a little while now, and I am glad to work with you to figure this out

. In the Digital Care Department, we are dedicated to your experience so you have definitely come to the right place!

To be certain that I understand correctly, the network you had set up with “Mary 3” is no longer showing up but it does allow you to connect. At least previously it did but now if disconnected again, is that correct? -DDC

Twitter uses an oddly formed URL that as far as I can figure it tries to redirect your URL request to their twitter app back into Windows but unless you have the twitter app installed windows reports it does not know what to do with the link. The error you are seeing.

SO go to the Microsoft store and install the twitter app.
