Alright, this is strange and a little disconcerting, not about this place but just in general. On my PC I had switched my search in Chrome to Duck Duck Go. All of a sudden I couldn't see Tweets on the Planet. Disablebled it and I can see them again. WTF is going on?

That is weird. I use DDG exclusively with no issues seeing other peoples posted tweets.

I don't use Chrome so not much help. But along the privacy topic, I use Safari and Firefox as they build in protection from tracking your activity. Chrome most assuredly does not.

that is fricking horrifying!
i don't have anything like that, or alexa. never will. hell, some washing machines communicate online now for..."troubleshooting".
I truly think a huge majority of people are transfixed by shiny new technology and pay zero attention to the security and privacy aspects.

It is somewhat ironic that a device peddled as a security solution is actually anything but secure.

I run DDG using Firefox & noticed the same thing about reading posted Tweets [but not every Tweet does not initially view]...

I just refresh the page & the Tweet appears [when not initially viewable]

I blame Jack Dorsey's Commie-Hillbilly beard & asshole-ish nose ring :coffee:
