    Hi @spotify love your service in the most part but the Family account is just hopeless for those of us also using @Sonos. Really need a better way of managing multiple accounts. Getting to the point where I'm going to cancel as it's becoming infuriating.

    @socialistwillow @ridewithvia @LinkNYC @FreedomPop @CitiBikeNYC @Spotify @YouTube @Fly_Norwegian Affordable carpools, free broadband, free cell service on $50 phones are important. Others just cheap luxuries. Point is new free/cheaper stuff makes us richer every year at any given wage. But I get your point--housing, education, healthcare costs not as rosy as tech capitalism

    @SpotifyCares That’s what I expected. Feels pretty petty but I’ve cancelled my membership over the lack of communication and follow up regarding this issue. I was hoping to at least get a reason why it hasn’t been fixed yet. Over 8 months with nothing but “we’ve passed it on” isn’t reassuring.
