Contacting Twitter Support is Like Getting Blood From a Stone!

Ah, the trials and tribulations of trying to make contact with Twitter, it’s probably easier building a time machine and taking a holiday through history, now really, it probably is!

Many of you reading this blog will know that I founded the Blazing Minds website back in 2008 along with this was the Twitter account, aptly named Blazing Minds as well, and other social networking accounts to tie in with the Award Winning website.

Almost nine weeks ago (during the typing of this post) I was told that my tweets weren’t appearing in the Twitter Timeline and this, in turn, led to tweets not being found when doing live events or tweet chats when using a hash tag.

Very strange, so I went through the channels with Twitter and contacted them via their help website and submitted a ticket.

A week went by and nothing, not even an automated email from them, then another week and another. On the fourth week, I contacted them again and submitted a request to them, still nothing.

I popped on to Twitter and contacted them via their @Support account, still nothing, time has dragged on and after several attempts and nine weeks later still nothing, no help, no response, nada!

Seriously folks is this any way to run a help service? I’ve been a Twitter user since the early days of Twitter and for them to not give a damn about someone that has been using and promoting them via the tweeting over the years is disgusting.

I did at one point manage to get in touch with someone at Twitter via their email, but sadly they wasn’t much help and replied with, “It’s the search algorithms that Twitter uses”, yeah right!

So what next with Twitter?

Well, there isn’t much I can do, I can keep trying to get some response from Twitter Support and hope that at some point they answer some of my tweets to them.

 

Entering in to the World of Film on IMDB

Many of you that follow my award-winning website, Blazing Minds, will know that for many years I have been reviewing events, movies, working with some great celebs and photographing them as well.

You may have also seen me mention in a few articles that I have been working Behind The Scenes on a few upcoming movies.

I’m now pleased to announce that after working on several projects, I am now listed on IMDB and have also moved in to the world of film making with my first major credit (for me anyway) of Assistant Director on Dene Michael’s new video for his song “Hold Me Know”.

Don’t worry, I’m still going to be doing a lot of work with Blazing Minds and keeping that going for your entertainment needs.

So I would love it if you could all stop by another Twitter I have for this movie in to film making and give it a follow, @KarenNWoodham.

Massive thanks to everyone for all your support, I’ll also be using this blog for all the updates on what I’m up to with Best Picture Film and Video Star UK, so keep your eyes peeled for any new.

 

Cloverfield has a sequel!!

What a surprise to wake up to this morning as almost from nowhere Paramount Pictures have been quietly making a sequel to the 2008 movie, Cloverfield.

You remember the movie, the one where a group of friends venture deep into the streets of New York on a rescue mission during a rampaging monster attack!

The first movie was made on an estimated budget of $25,000,000 and has become a cult movie for fans of the rampaging creature.

Yep, that’s the one, there was news of a sequel to the movie coming out, with IMDB having a page calling it “Untitled Cloverfield Sequel”, but now we know the name, “10 Cloverfield Lane”.

It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it and that someone was me!

What can I say, the other day I had a really tough job to do, a review of an event at the local theatre that was probably one of the strangest jobs that I have done when it comes to reviewing a show, suffice to say, the reviewing went very well and I did get to work with some rather big muscle men. But hey, as I said it’s a tough job and someone had to do it and it was me that had to do it.

So if you would like to learn more about this little event from The ADONIS Cabaret Show (Hollywood Strip) then please, click the image above and check out the article and see some more of the pictures from the evening at the Rhyl Pavilion, don’t worry there aren’t really any rude ones in the article …. Or are there?!!!!
