Web developers can now use Twitter to report Microsoft Edge bugs

Web developers now have a potentially easier way to submit bug reports to the Microsoft Edge team: with a tweet. As announced on the Microsoft Edge developer blog, developers can now use Twitter to submit bugs, although it does require a series of specific steps to get started.

Submitting Edge bug on Twitter

From the blog post:

Filing a bug via Twitter is simple! Just keep in mind the following:

  • Use the hashtag #EdgeBug so our tool catches your bug and we can follow up with a link to the bug.
  • Include a link to a reduced test case of the bug on codepen.io, jsfiddle.net, jsbin.com, or dabblet.com – this makes sure the bug is actionable on our end.
  • Use the text remaining to make a title for your bug. Make sure it's succinct and descriptive!

Once tweeted, your bug should automatically be filed and you'll get a link to your bug on the issue tracker via a reply from the @MSEdgeDev account. Of course, you can still file bugs directly through the Issue Tracker, as well as the UserVoice page as well.

For much more, including how to create a reduced test case, be sure to check out Microsoft's full blog post.
