Question for @marksedwill, UK Cabinet Secretary, has 77 brigade been tasked with identifying domestic social media content on #COVID-19 and targeting for manipulation and censorship?
1) @marksedwill now possesses extraordinary power within the UK government, serving as head of the Cabinet Office, National Security Advisor and Head of the Civil Service
2) As Cabinet Secretary he oversees the Rapid Response Unit which in turn directs 77Brigade, a UK *military* propaganda operation, which is active in countering what they claim to be ‘disinformation’

Forced into cold turkey for everything @AmazonUK related.

Account forcibly closed.

After over a month of trying to get @AmazonHelp to, ahem, help through their app's online chat, Amazon decided that their recommended solution to their issue didn't sit well with them after all
...a bit of background.

On 31 March 2020, I received what I thought was a phishing phone call asking me about purchase of gift certificates on @AmazonUK.

I told them as much because I had not used Amazon to buy anything at all that day.

I thought nothing more of it.
...that is until I got some automated emails saying that transactions for gift vouchers and merchandise I knew nothing about had been cancelled.

I logged into Amazon to find that I had to change password and that purchases before 27 March no longer appeared under 'my orders'.

There's plenty of scary and sad info on here so thought I'd start a thread of photos from my one daily #walk, #run or #cycle from home in #Southampton during the #COVID19 #lockdownuk. Thankfully the weather has so far been stunning! 🙏☀️☀️☀️

Your #autistic children may be finding the big shift to being at home all the time good or bad. Depends entirely on their experience of school and their preferences for routine. A thread of advice - please share. /1
Some #autistic students will be overjoyed at being home all day, but will react badly to the imposition of school work into their normal home routine. I guess they're living in 'holiday routine' mode and might be loving the freedom to do their own thing. /2
It will take time and patience to create a new normal in these situations. School work will feel intrusive and alien, and I'd expect some #autistic students will ignore it, hoping it goes away. Certainly pushing this work in them is liable to end badly! /3

Heathrow airport today. No controls, no checks and no social distancing. Flights from red zones have never been stopped. People jump straight onto the tube, Welcome to London!! @SadiqKhan @TfLTravelAlerts @HeathrowAirport @BorisJohnson @MattHancock #COVID19 #CoronavirusLockdown
And the Heathrow employee coming up to the camera laughing. Staff need to be trained
We need to ban any incoming flights from the USA too, seeing the lack of controls there and Trump's dangerous policies #COVIDIDIOTS @BBC @mrjamesob @Channel4News #lockdownuk
