Below are my responses to some of the emails sent to me over the past 24-hours, plus, at the very bottom is my photo of the day.
To send me a photo, use [email protected], and to send me a message use the submit news button on our website.
I loved your photo of the day on Saturday morning. I ran with the bulls years ago and it is a bucket list item everyone should check off at some point. I will say that Miss Mary’s photo was better. LOL.
DML: Mary is by far the more talented Lynch.
Hi Dennis, it took me forever to find where to email you. I saw the photo of you wrapped in the flag in the water, and I must say I’m not too happy about it. That is wrong on so many levels, I realize you were trying to make a point but that’s not the way to do it.
I also got tired of your negativity about Trump. I think he’s doing an outstanding job especially considering all the crap they has come against him. No, he isn’t perfect but who is ? And yes, I think he’s better than Reagan because he has the business sense…and remember, Reagan actually legislated amnesty! I think sometimes people forget that. But please in the future do not disrespect our flag. That’s unacceptable. MAGA Trump 2020 Lisa
DML: Lisa, it’s disappointing to learn that you had trouble finding how to reach me as the instructions are all over the website. But lets dissect your email in easy-to-understand messaging so that there is no confusion.
(1) I am glad you think Trump — after 18-months in office — is better than Reagan who spent 8-years in office. You are entitled to your opinion, and I am entitled to mine. My opinion is that Reagan is the best president of our lifetime. Why your opinion is better than mine, only you know. I understand Reagan provided amnesty, and that’s why he isn’t the best president of all time, as far as my opinion is concerned. Trump is flirting with giving DACA amnesty, and as a result we are getting bombarded at the border. (Oops!!! Note to self: I shouldn’t have written that DACA remark. Can’t point out negative stuff to people like Lisa)
(2) You write, “Trump is less than perfect” but then you hammer me for pointing out when those “less than perfect” events take shape. If you want nothing but a cheerleading squad, tune in to Fox News at 9pm M-F. Or follow other people online who look to monetize people like yourself who don’t seek the truth but rather, a pom pom celebration that comes with a free set of blinders.
(3) As for you not being happy about the flag being wrapped around my neck…. I really don’t give two hoots about your negativity. I go out of my way to do my part for this country — a lot more than most people I’ve met. The image comes from a story that stems back to a REAL news report of vandals stealing American flags off a bridge and tossing them into the sea. If you can’t figure out the rest, then I don’t know what to tell you other than, America is already great.
(4) The photo below may be photoshopped, I don’t know either way, but enjoy it.
(5) And for prosperity. Here is the photo again but in a different light.
Dennis, When I went to punch in the 40404, and your name etc…. it is saying that Twitter no longer allows or “supports” this. Such BS. I don’t even think it has anything to DO with twitter…
Sooo confused. They are truly screwing with you and your cause!!!!
DML: You may have experienced a strange message from your carrier, which without seeing it, I cannot help you. Here are the instructions from Twitter, I think this should help you with FOLLOW @ realDennisLynch (Keep in mind, my tweets and alerts are both found on the DML NEWS APP. Under “politics” you can find my tweets, and if you keep notifications on your app turned on, all should pop up for you.
About Twitter SMS commands
You can perform certain actions, like following a user or liking a friend’s Tweet, by using the designated Twitter commands below.
When using these commands, do not append an @ symbol along with the command text. If you send these commands with an @ symbol, your commands will be read as a username and will not be executed as expected.
Example: If you want to turn on device notifications, send only “ON” and not “@ON.”
Turning mobile Twitter updates OFF and ON
ON: turns ALL your authorized Twitter updates and notifications on.
OFF: turns ALL phone notifications off.
ON [username]: turns on notifications for a specific person on your phone. Example: ON anna
OFF [username]: turns off notifications for a specific person on your phone. Example: OFF sheeda
FOLLOW [username]: allows you to start following a specific user, as well as receive SMS notifications. Example: FOLLOW sheeda, or F sheeda, for short.
UNFOLLOW [username]: allows you to stop following someone specific.
STOP: stops notifications, deletes your follower list, and removes your phone number from Twitter.
QUIT, END, CANCEL, UNSUBSCRIBE, or ARRET: stops notifications. If you completed the sign-up flow on the web, sending any of these commands to your Twitter short code will remove your phone number from the Twitter account most recently linked to your number.
Commands for Direct Messages, likes, and stats
Use the commands below to send Direct Messages, like Tweets, and more.
- @[username] + message – shows your Tweet as a reply directed at another person, and causes your Tweet to save in their mentions tab. Example: @meangrape I love that song too!
- D [username] + message – sends that person a Direct Message that goes to their device, and saves in their web archive.
- You can also use M [username] + message to send a Direct Message.
- Examples: d candace want to pick up a Jamba Juice for me while you’re there?or m candace wanna pick up a Jamba Juice for me while you’re there? performs the same action.
Note: Direct Message fails: Your service provider may split SMS messages greater than 160 characters into multiple messages. In this case, the second message will post as a normal Tweet because it doesn’t begin with d+username, as the first message did. Please be careful to ensure that your messages are under 160 characters.
- RETWEET [username] – Retweets someone else’s latest Tweet to your followers. Example: RETWEET Charles or RT Charles
- SET LANGUAGE [language name] – selects the language you’d like to receive notifications in. Example: set language German
- WHOIS [username] – retrieves the profile information for any public account on Twitter. Example: whois jack or w jack, for short.
- LIKE [username] – likes someone else’s last Tweet (reply to any update with LIKE or * to mark it as a like if you’re receiving it in real time). Examples: like crystal or * crystal
- STATS [username] – this command returns the given user’s number of followers, how many people they’re following, and their bio information.
- HELP – texting help, info, or aide to Twitter will bring up helpful tips.
- SET DISCOVER ON – by using this command, you opt-in to receive SMS notifications for top Tweets related to your interests. Please know that this feature is automatically enabled for all Twitter via SMS users. Note: this feature is only available in certain locations.
- SET DISCOVER OFF – turns off delivery of top Tweets to your device.
A few notes on SMS commands
- Using ON/OFF [username] from your phone only stops notifications coming to your mobile phone; you’ll still collect a person’s updates on the web since you’re still following them.
- Use UNFOLLOW [username] to unfollow an account via SMS.
- Use BLOCK [username] or BLK [username] to block an account via SMS.
- You can also use UNBLOCK [username] or UNBLK [username]
- Use REPORT [username] or REP [username] to report an account as spam.
- The following commands perform the same actions: FOLLOW = ON. And LEAVE = OFF.
- Following someone from a phone for the first time will also cause you to follow them on the web.
- You don’t have to use ON/OFF [username] from your phone, you can also set individual notifications from a person’s profile page on the web, or check your following page and manage all phone notification settings there.
