@USPSHelp does the tracking issues affect amazon tracking
deishalé rodriquez (@DeishaLeshay) reported
I need more customer service like the @ChickfilA and @amazon! Best around hands down

@dakami @amazon Oh I know all about the problem of variants of background noise and matching words to a set of known words. LOL
Kim Zetter (@KimZetter) reported
@hrbrmstr Amazon didn't tell them it was their configuration problem, so why are you? Amazon said it was trying to figure out how to fix this so it doesn't happen again.
Danielle M. Villegas (@TechCommGeekMom) reported
@aschwanden4stc @amazon I’ve had the same issue. I had to change to their default, “Echo” instead of “Alexa” because I have a coworker named Alexis and the Dot would answer if I said her name out loud.
hrbrmstr (@hrbrmstr) reported
@KimZetter @Marketplace @NPR That's user-error. Amazon is executing their "damage control" PR playbook (very well, might I add). The device asks. I have them. Use them daily. Have had similar conditions happen but never not-paid-attention to the prompts.
Entropy (@MorsVitaEst) reported
I mean, Amazon pays nothing in taxes, but sure IRS Guy, the real problem is poor people trying to scam the government for someone else's $500 tax refund
"Robert's just this guy, you know..." Watkins (@twasink) reported
@sstaver @daringfireball I suspect Amazon wanted to actually confirm that's what happened before providing the information. This is a fast-moving story, and tracking down these details does take time.
hrbrmstr (@hrbrmstr) reported
Man, I hope @Marketplace and/or @NPR doesn't focus on the not-a-story Amazon Echo/Alexa "news" from today in tomorrow's coverage. It was not a problem with the device but with the users.

@AmazonHelp i bought my phone charger in february and it’s already broken !

@AmazonHelp She has picked something up in error, but that’s not really my concern. The issue is that she’s creepily whispering instead of using her regular voice.

@ChapterChat5_6 Question 10: I think what their families are doing right now is trying to get a rescue team to find the children and get them out of the jungle but the problem is, is that they don’t know if they are in the Amazon Jungle. Liam Martin
Martin Harvey (@mhharvey) reported
@AmazonHelp Thanks for the follow-up however, my wife has been away all day and until later this evening so today might be a squeeze. Frankly from our experience, repeated problems, and web research it seems Logistics, still, simply isn't working
Jack Deeth (@JackDeeth) reported
@mk1969 @TheNewEuropean This is a pretty terrible day for Amazon Echo devices…
Paul Sweeney (@PaulSweeney) reported
@speirin @amazon @JeffBezos Trying to figure out what year that is (above)~ I was buying books from Abebooks and Amazon since inception. I also sat my team down when AWS launched and said “this is the future”. Now, it’s AI and for me, Conversational Technologies.

I think Fred is having nightmares because he is missing his parents and the amazon jungle is a terrible place. Sofia E and Matilda
jackup65 (@jackup65) reported
@AP Easy fix is the homeowner can give a Consent to Release the information stored and it will show exactly what happened. Either Amazon or homeowner is wrong so this is the only way to resolve it. Without verifying the info 1st, another example of print first ask questions later.

@Eddie_561 @noahcalderon_ True I ordered one from amazon for $20 to fix my screen and it didn’t work smh

Q4 I think Fred and Con were sensible climbing the tree because benefited them and it sounded pretty fun. I would stay down if it was me in the Amazon. by Braedyn
John (@Js1515John) reported
@ChukaUmunna @TheIFS I’ve an idea, tell, Google, Amazon, Costa, Starbucks, Facebook, O2, Apple, all the banks, every hedge fund, and EVERY other company that does business in the UK, PAY YOUR TAX, not just a small bit of it, or we WILL close you down and arrest those involved
Chris Wade (@cmwdotme) reported
@tomwarren It’s likely they had the volume turned down. Perhaps Amazon just need to do a better job of adjusting the voice recognition in relation to the volume of the speaker
Sam Jarvis (@samjarvis1987) reported
@IdleHeroes your Amazon version's been down for over 12 hours now. Can you please let us know what's going on!
Jay Besser (@bessertkj) reported
@Sinizt3r1 @Benigma2017 I absolutely agree with employers paying THEIR workers more, however Amazon avoided taxes (a separate, but important issue) because of globalism, specifically picking Luxembourg for this purpose.
Jean Marie Bauhaus (@jmbauhaus) reported
@Polar_Bear_Edit I do it primarily because on Amazon it shows the price of the Kindle version as marked down from the print version, which makes it seem like they're getting a better deal. I don't sell many, but I do sell a few. I diy everything so for me there's no additional production cost.
Steven Forster (@steve__1979) reported
@EON_SE_en I would like an apology for my electric in entire street going off 3 times this week whilst my Amazon fire tv box & Brand new PlayStation 4 Plus was playing causing temporary damage I had to fix, if you damage them you are replacing them, simple as that, Pont Street, Ashington

I have an Amazon problem
kaybeezy (@kaymarieari) reported
@AmazonHelp thank you kindly. my problem was resolved. y’all rock
Tong Zou (@gofishus) reported
whats beter? Amazon Cloud vs Google Drive vs Skydrive vs Dropbox?? FALSE. Your own RAID server
Ken Keiter (@kenkeiter) reported
@strmpnk Yeah, it's shocking. Like, your ass wrote three off-by-one errors today and you think some randos at Amazon are going to be capable of building a secure, semi-sentient assistant that's always listening to you?
Mark Hurst (@markhurst) reported
@Recode @holden @amazon In 2 years: "A self-driving car became sentient, broke down the garage door, tore up the front lawn, and ended up in the neighbor's pool. Tech company responded, 'We looked into it and that rarely happens.'"
MICKEY WEISTER (@KoreanWarrior33) reported
@amazon hi I have a question how do I return sum thing back if it’s broken and it didn’t have a return slip ?
Mr. Legit (@thelegitopinion) reported
@amazon Your new return policy of banning customers sucks. Fix this @JeffBezos. This is a bad idea
Josh Person 🗿 (@thejoshperson) reported
By “impulse” I mean it’s been sitting in my amazon cart for 3 weeks and I finally broke down and bought it
Tyler A. Saldaña (@tylersaldana) reported
@fighterofevil I order my books from @DCBService. I’ve never had any major problems with them. I order once-a-month. With the discounts, I’m able to read a ton more content. Also: the new hardcovers and TPBs often are better than Amazon prices!
Bill Prus (@BillPrus) reported
@MollyJongFast I have done IT since late 1980's. That statement is total bullshit. If Google / Amazon is not listening. The NSA, on down the rest of the alphabet soup is.
jobear (@josephbroderi11) reported
@saziz01b @amazon I’ve rarely had problems with amazon itself and they always fix it very quickly. Outstanding customer service.
Fiona Norris (@Fiona7689Fiona) reported
@ElaineYoung94 @StevenStreets @AineCarson1 @janewest73 @katie_l Ladies - I want to draw ur attention to the above book -The Fourth Procedure by John Stanley Pottinger.Its very good and can be bought on Amazon. I couldn't put it down -especially what they do 2 the pro-life judge!
Edward Swaine (@edswaine) reported
@donaldcclarke Correction: Amazon issues update explaining that earlier press release was forged and distributed by Echo.

I hate Amazon’s Listing issues department sooo much! I’m sure they hate me tooo
Mikey- Fund NASA ffs (@Mikeyseuro) reported
@SRuhle @080192ak @BernieSanders HAHAHHAHAHAHAHA. And here is where you're 100% wrong. THE SYSTEM IS THE PROBLEM. Amazon got a 2.6% SUBSIDY in 2017. The workers piss in plastic bottles to meet quotas. The establishment media which you are a part of are out of touch. And I thought you were one of the better ones.
Nina Berry (@Ninaberry) reported
@RachelxRussell Same! I can see how devices like this could be great for some disabled folks, but if you don't need it - AVOID! Also Amazon needs to fix this crap,
A Cunning Linguist (@JanvierNoir) reported
My coworker be looking at this Amazon doorbell camera during the day. Other day, his wife was outside coming in from the car&he was like hmmm… where she been? Anyways, they been having issues — he told the office his entire biz. So he prolly gone see somebody at his crib soon.

Currently looking up amazon hauls on YouTube can you tell I have a problem
BG (@Bgbiskite) reported from Nashville, Tennessee
@64BitRatchet @YonkouProd @JRPictures The issue is,however, more people watch anime on the other platforms because they know it exist. Amazon doesn't advertise it's anime very well
Jonathan H. Adler (@jadler1969) reported
@dmataconis @amazon The problem is that the reasons Amazon appear to be false (and they gave shifting explanations)
Lindsay Follett (@FollettL) reported
@AmazonHelp And that won’t work! My account was completely hacked. I asked for the account to be frozen as I was worried more fraudulent purchases could be made. I can’t sign in while it is frozen.
Cay Sols (@CaySols) reported
@AmazonHelp Thank you. I’d love your help. Would love to speak to a manager able to resolve this issue for me. How can I contact you?

@BillOReilly I get the following message when trying to read from the UK. Did I miss anything good? 403 ERROR The request could not be satisfied. The Amazon CloudFront distribution is configured to block access from your country. Generated by cloudfront (CloudFront) Request ID:
Jonathan (@JRPictures) reported
@64BitRatchet @YonkouProd @Bgbiskite Getting rid of the double paywall doesn't fix much of anything for Amazon's service. They still fail to upload episodes on time, have added episodes without subs (or the subs have numerous errors), their PR people seem to forget what shows they're even streaming etc
😱 (@user4721) reported
My dad is saying things like ‘going on the internet doesn’t always solve the fucking problem’ (me going to the amazon site for help on setting up the chair)
Outlaw Poet (@Outlawpoet1970) reported
@AmazonHelp lol - no, the new format is terrible. You should put the old page back up!
SmartEnlight (@smartenlight) reported
@jason_kint @WIRED @vestager That’s a sharp border. Why Amazon, Apple, etc. thumbs up and Google, FB thumbs down? Asking from the smart home assistant frontline. (The spies listening at home .... ;-)
Average guy AD (@Averageguy93) reported
Well Amazon Prime Now totally let me down. Nothing like being messed around the first time you use a company.
Rick Gregory (@rickg) reported
@ricfink @gruber Possible? Sure. But that's a long way from what was described. It's more likely (to me) that there was a glitch on the server side the bypassed some or all of this. Amazon should clarify what precisely happened. Sadly, they tend to be very tightlipped.
Potoo® (@PotooLLC) reported
52% of sellers said they use eBay as an alternate marketing place for Amazon, down from 65% last year. However, Walmart is becoming a bigger competitor as 17% of Amazon merchants sell on Walmart, up from 9% last year. #Amazon #eBay #Walmart #ECommerce #OnlineRetailGrowth #Potoo
Annette (@dmartinigirl) reported
Unemployment is too low. Too many idiots have jobs and customer service is terrible everywhere. (Except Chick-fil-A and Amazon.)
Toby Hopkins (@Toby2Kenobi) reported
@AmazonHelp I’m referring to damage caused to my phone by the faulty product supplied. My iPhone is now broken.
Mclovin71 (@Mclovin__71) reported
@OnePlus_IN I'mso sad that OnePlus have made OnePlus 6 available through Amazon! Amazon is the worst when it comes to delivering a product with care and its service after delivering is depressing I bought the phone but due to a problem they will reply me after 5 days they said.
