So in summary, @FreeNow_UK@twitter.com - you're doing badly at this. Do better.
And finally, here's @email@example.com - look at this! Surprisingly wonderful - I can opt in and out of all the types of notification I might care about ❤️
Here's @firstname.lastname@example.org - disappointingly vague in category names - what does "urgent" mean? But at least they have two named categories, and they don't bug me with promotions with these settings! I'll keep them.
Actually, while we're here, let's do some comparisons!
Here's @UberUK@twitter.com - not too shabby! Quite intrigued by that "using your location" checkbox. Allows me to opt in and out of different types of notification - nice 👍

Thank you to everyone who has shared their understanding and sympathy - it's all hugely appreciated. ❤️
6 weeks ago my uncle was diagnosed with a highly-treatable cancer. After the first round of chemo he contracted an infection. Today his life-support is being switched off.
RIP Uncle Rick- you're one of the loveliest people I've known.
Hug the ones you love. Don't wait ❤️

I did. I did know this.

I would quite like to see another #spiderverse movie.
In the meantime I guess I'll just have to watch the existing one ... again. It's SO good!
So much this 👇
Dear all app developers, when I use the Share button I just want to share the link.
I don't need or want you to add any text to that link, all you're doing is making me feel like I'm spamming my friends.
Well, I'm SURE this stance will increase the dramatically reduced number of attendees at their services all around the country. 🙄🤦♂️
