Seems like I've got £100 off your first bill for anyone who switches to this week! 100% renewable electricity (British Gas is 40%), no contract (leave when you like), AND they pay your current supplier's mid-contract leaving fee! Get a quote:

"If you find something broken, fix it!" is often bad advice that stops people reporting problems. If something is broken, report it to those responsible. If they need your help, then provide it. Don't assume you must or can fix everything. Not every problem is everyone's problem.

3rd parties also don't have full access to timelines or DMs, as well as settings like quality & content filters. It's so that people use the official app, yes, but also so that Twitter can actually iterate on the product, and deliver ads & measure impact.

It's really not possible to give 3rd parties access — there's too much experimentation and fluidity in the product & API & it's hard enough to coordinate that *within* Twitter, let alone managing those changes externally. That said: no, that really shouldn't be a notification 🤦🏼‍♂️

lists all purchases that Google is aware of you making. Amazon orders. iPhone apps. Steam games. Random items/gifts. I had no clue Google had this level of knowledge about my spending habits. It is kind of scary :/

PART 2 Over huge area of Siberia, enough lava erupted in a few thousand years to cover the lower 48 United States A KILOMETER DEEP. But as mindblowing as eruptions were, they only covered part of Russia--so lava itself couldn't have killed almost everything on the planet.
