    I can't make out more than a single word on those expanding tweets HITs. How do these people function in society?

    rofl quoted for truth. Its really a result of the character limitations. I wish they would lift that or at the very least double it.

    Well today I got rejected for Image Sourcing work yesterday. The license plate one. I figured something was up when I had 2 pending after all of them were approved. :(

    Someone got their rejection reversed because it was a temp plate. Instructions didn't say to skip it so he reversed the rejection.

    They have you do a training HIT first, and will make you re-do those all correctly until they send you into the real deal. It took me several before I got comfortable with them, and they warn you that they throw in some of their test items in the real batches as a quality check. I'm using Chrome.

    NO LIE. But I understand because when we had to shorten the tweets, we basically had to scrap alot of these to nothing. I emailed them saying that some of these I shorten will make no sense at all and they emailed back saying that's fine, it was apart of their test. I'm guessing this expanding part is part two of the test.

    I'm thinking that in the future we'll all be communicating through clicking noises and a few consonants.

    They're not real tweets. There is/was an HIT where they gave you sentences(s) and asked you to shorten it to twitter length by using abbreviations etc. Now they're asking people to expand the shortened tweets. I think they're comparing the original to what people are coming up with after the expansion, sort of like a game of Telephone.

    Contact them. I have read that they have reversed rejections in the past.

    Thanks. I am doing that. I was skeptical when I was doing them because anything can go wrong by reading them wrong, D looking like O , stuff like that. Alot of them were dark, barely readable.

    This is true! I got two rejections from the last big batch they posted, I sent him an email and asked which one I did wrong. He gave me what I typed and what I should have typed. Then the next time I checked my account he reversed the rejections, without me even asking (I don't fight rejections I deserve). Super cool requester, definitely email him.

    I'm SO tired of the SpeechTranscript "Shouting" ones, but they've gotten so easy and I want to make it to 2,000 by the end of today. Grr.
