"I know you from Twitter"
- Embarrassing for everyone involved
- Humiliating
- Too online

"Your reputation precedes you"
- Cool and scary

So in summary, @FreeNow_UK@twitter.com - you're doing badly at this. Do better.

And finally, here's @gettaxi@twitter.com - look at this! Surprisingly wonderful - I can opt in and out of all the types of notification I might care about ❤️

Show thread

Here's @lyft@twitter.com - 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 👍

Hello @FreeNow_UK@twitter.com!

I'm uninstalling your app because you keep sending me promotion notifications and I can't switch them off (and keep any USEFUL notifications) because your Android app only has a "default" notification category.

If it's all or nothing, I'll take nothing.

I'm all booked in to @emfcamp@twitter.com! I'm bringing my family, so if you've met my daughter and that scares you, you may not want to come. 😬

WTAF 🤯

Electronic patient records systems used by thousands of doctors were programmed to automatically suggest opioids at treatment, thanks to a secret deal between the software maker and a drug company trib.al/279giS0

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 ❤️

Abandoned??? They're not abandoned, just taking a nap. They're tired out after a prolonged awk.

I would quite like to see another 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. 🙄🤦‍♂️

Evening, everyone! This is not a Leffe. This is a Westvleteren 12.

Why yes, I am doing work for @MongoDB@twitter.com. What kind of work do you do?
