Somewhat Frustrated

Over time I think I've indicated that I prefer to do on-line stuff/computer stuff at the desk top computer, rather than on my phone or tablet.  I find it easier and more precise.  I can type faster and more accurately on a full real keyboard, and there are some features that just do not work as well on the handheld devices.  This is particularly true when messing with various social media accounts.

No I often go through Twitter while on my tablet.  Generally all I do is scan through the latest Tweets on my "Home" page, and Retweet and Like as appropriate.  Sometimes I'll reply, and on occasion follow someone.  But I've found I have trouble trying to reply and add a picture to the reply.  Last night, sitting in the recliner, watching TV and going through my Twitter feed I came upon a Tweet I wanted to reply to.  Typed out the reply and decided to add a pic.  Selected the pic, and hit "Done" which should have taken me back to the Tweet so I could "Reply" but it didn't.  Ended up back at a blank tweet, and then by the time I got back to the feed, the original I was trying to reply to was long gone.  Doubt if that would have happened if I'd been here on the computer.  And that's not the first time that's happened.  Most of the time if I do decide to reply while on the tablet I do so without trying to include a pic.

A situation somewhat conducive to the need for a beer!

Beer and Pizza, sure to ease the FRUSTRATION factor somewhat!

beer and pizza will certainly help.

I too prefer the laptop for most social media stuff. It is more easier to use than phone or tablet.

And I've noticed certain functions don't work or show up on the mobile apps. I've also discovered that regardless of where we are posting, paying attention to what we are doing is very important. I think that's what happened yesterday in my attempt to comment on your post. (I was distracted by Coco playing under the desk and thought my original comment never posted, so I posted it again.)
