      Am I the only one who gets an annoying tweet box that blocks out articles on this site? Or is this some 9 year old geek’s ide of a new “feature”?

        Derryl, that should not be case. The social share buttons are supposed to float to the left of the story. Could you possibly send us a screen capture of what you are seeing to editor@insidecostarica.com? We apologize for the inconvenience. If any other readers are experiencing the same problem (or any problem viewing the site) please send an email to editor@insidecostarica.com.

          Hi Tim,
          Sorry to post a bitchy comment. Thanks for the quick reply. I don’t know how to get a screen shot. For the past couple of days every time I open one of your articles the tweet box takes over a large rectangle on the middle left side of my iPad screen. I can’t find any little “x” in a corner to shut it off. It usually disappears after a few seconds, but this time it lingered. When I wrote that comment, the tweet box was covering half of the comment box so I couldn’t see what I was typing. I’m not hopelessly incompetent, but neither am I a techie, and I have no clue what causes this kind of problem or how to fix it. So many modern electronics have built-in “improvements” that automatically do all the things that I DON’T want them to do, that I’m no longer sure how to tell the difference between a glitch and a “feature”. If the problem persists I’ll email you again, Derryl

            No problem, Derryl. In fact I wish more people would actually comment or write in if they have any technical issues like that; so many people don’t bother thinking “someone else will report it.” We’ll look into this on an iPad and see what is going. Thanks for letting us know.
