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.
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 (opens in new tab) 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.

This is great. There hasn't really been a nice place for web devs to report engine bugs until now. There was Connect inherited from the IE days but that's hideous and clunky. Twitter is much more modern and simple.
I'm glad they have this. I can't use Edge for anything really because it freezes on almost every website, especially YouTube (even on different computers). I have to use IE. It breaks my heart. I love Edge so much and want it to be mega successful, but with all these bugs I fear not. Luckily this Twitter thing brings hope. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
What about WhatsApp? Can it be used?
