    Been busy these last few days and haven't been checking, but.....
    Checked my feed today and notice this displayed in a Banner at the top of the page

    Clicking the "Learn more" link displays this

    Seems like everyone is conspiring against Internet Explorer.

    That is really odd... there's no reason that IE11 shouldn't work (at least not that I'm aware of).

    I wonder what their reasoning is?!

    looks like it only affects IE and Safari (no surprise with this one). All others do not get that message...

    No idea, except for the Banner dispalying all the time at the top of the window, it seems to work perfectly as far as I can tell.
    I can't imagine that it would be a security issue..... I would think that they would mention something like that, if that were the case.
    Nothing, if you're talking about RSS feeds.
    IF you're talking about other twitter feeds, there is approximately 3,000 or so that I follow.

    My thought is that they want me to use the App, rather than using it inside a browser.
    On my phone and my desktop the App / Mobile App works fine.
    I just find it much easier to have the extra tab open in my browser, rather than having the browser open AND a second process like the Twitter App open.
