@knox_o Weird still not, but maybe it's my connection. Will try again later. @knox_o Sure, the link dosen't seem to work for me though, is it ok for you?

@alexemmonshere Thanks that would be a solution, but it's a bit more of a general question. @mccauleyphotos Hey James, just replied to it. @andypearsall Interesting, I'll try that. @memorypalace Ah that's helpful, thanks Susan! @_hahahelen Great to know, thanks Helen! @hmorriscafiero Thanks Haley!

Retweeted by Lewis Bush @Detritusphoto Never I suspect. @Photomando7 Exactly. I'm sure he's very aware of that. The use of the word here seems rather smirking. @Photomando7 And the fact he calls them models in the next paragraph is almost equally weird. @Photomando7 Yeah just amazes me people who are meant to be socially aware still use a word like 'prostitutes' tbh. @AnnemarieBala @leahband Yeah I don't know which of these is worse either... @ohmadelaine I know right...Movie night.
