A new version (or versions) of the CNN Pop-up Twitter Widget is back !
Two slightly different versions crop up in a small box in the center of the Top of the screen -
"Check out CNN on Twitter"
"For more info on this Story"
- both saying that you should press the 'FiOS TV' button on your remote.
Once again, there appears to be no way to turn this off. The little box kept banging into the top of the News announcers head as the camera moved slightly. But, this thing actually goes away before a minute has elapsed - unlike the previous version from a few months ago. And, it seems not to activate all that often.
So, I guess they think they solved the most annoying part of this by simply shrinking the Box and moving it to dead center on the Top of the screen. Now, we can get the Twitter News fix that we all crave.
* Probably by coincidence, we've lost our channel 502 CBS 21 HD channel in the Harrisburg area. They say it's just a glitch in the system and should return.
