A research project is tracking people at risk for suicide using data from smartphones and wearables to identify periods of high danger, and to intervene. https://t.co/0036ymbOy0

Just in case some people are not clear what Truss’s longer term plan is, after crashing the pound & decimating public services & the NHS. #GreatBritishSellOff

That’s a typo, it was meant to be “death plan”.

Amazing thread: "Mom, this war is the stupidest decision our gov't ever made." "We can't take Kyiv...we just take villages." "They wanted to f*cking do it in one fell swoop here & it didn't f*cking work like that." https://t.co/dsHb8TUDoY

If anyone’s concerned by today’s events, this the address you can take your complaints to - Truss’s spiritual home. I’m sure they’d be happy to see you. #55TuftonSt https://t.co/Rt6Ff2Ot8y

Just makes me deeply sad that they didn’t make it. And also slightly concerned we have no idea what we are walking into. https://t.co/LtjKcLSuta

Government 'focused on growth' rather than 'market movements' claims @NorwichChloe, unconvincingly. https://t.co/IduP8gF9R6 Ah yes - this is the masterful MP Jeremy Paxman tore to shreds over fuel duty u-turn on Newsnight a few years ago. A classic. https://t.co/Y6QOo0zYCG

Government is currently focused on lining the pockets of hedge funds which back Brexit, bank-roll Tory elections, and will retain ERG Tories as “consultants”. https://t.co/3xT41ssUp6

Change begins with education! We are calling upon Western universities and asking this question: How many Afghan women, girls are included in your #freshersweek? 2 scholarships from every uni would change lives #StopHazaraGenocide #LetAfghanGirlsLearn https://t.co/n4cii785lt

Climate obstruction is not just an outcome, it’s also an industry. According to @NaomiOreskes, there are over 8,000 firms, front groups and think tanks dedicated to blocking climate action.

So the Pope: 1) Addresses Ukrainian President @ZelenskyyUa in Russian, the language of aggressors, rapists and murderers; 2) Does not even mention Russia as the aggressor; 3) Urges the Ukrainian President to accept a "peace deal". Can we just say this guy is Putin-possessed? https://t.co/2TnO5CR8Iq

Thousands of @JustStop_Oil Just Stop coalition partners took London yesterday, forced to a standstill. You wouldn't know it because there is effectively a media blackout that we believe has been ordered by the Police and Home Sec. #ClimateCrisis https://t.co/eKeTuwM3Xw

The whole scandal of the last six years has yet to come out. Wait till people wake up to the connections between Hedge Funds, Tufton Street type think tanks and Cambridge Analytica style social media operations.

Is the European Union a Country? No. But it's also not just a "bloc", as it's so often referred to in English-language media. By any reasonable definition, it's a confederation. A great explainer of what the EU is, and what it's not: https://t.co/iqGaz6sVgx

Putin's "elite" gathers in Kremlin to hear him declare 4 Ukrainian regions Russian territory. Hours earlier, Russian missiles struck the capital of Zaporizhzhia, one of those regions, reportedly killing at least 20 people.

Should there be legal repercussions for gross negligence whilst holding a political office? If so, what? If not, why? (And please try to do better than 'because it's hard to define.)

In a few years we are going to see an explosion of "long tail" films as it becomes possible for mere writers working just with software to become movie makers. https://t.co/fnn6X6f3WL

This and other instances have been compiled by an excellent new campaign, Sorry, We Wrecked The Economy. We should hold these vandals accountable for what they have done. https://t.co/EI4b6iUUrH

Full Fact
We wrote to the Prime Minister about getting this wrong only yesterday. The government’s energy plans will affect every household in Britain this winter. And yet Liz Truss has repeatedly misled listeners this morning.

£2500 is *not* the maximum any family will pay on their energy bills this year. We wrote to the PM about getting this wrong yesterday. This morning, she’s repeated the false claim again in local BBC interviews. The public deserves better. https://t.co/zphIoe0PwL

Someone should set up a live stream of BBC local radio stations interviewing Truss back-to-back this morning… Be like when millions tuned in to watch planes landing at Heathrow during storm Eunice.

In any other country people would be throwing bricks through the windows of 55 Tufton Street. The organisations based there are traitorous manipulators of Britain.

This massive, self-inflicted disaster isn't just on the government. It's on the dark-money thinktanks who shaped its catastrophic policies. It's on the billionaire media, which championed them. It's on the BBC, which for years has granted a vast platform to extreme cultists.

It is fascinating. These eurosceptic-libertarian ultras have been so reliant on feeling betrayed to avoid accountability for their crackpot ideas. In Truss they accidentally got what they wanted - she let them down by not letting them down - and they have nowhere to hide.

After fleeing the war in Ukraine, I took up a new mission to fight propaganda.
