@MatthewBevan Read what? I didn't read a thing. @mandybeaumont @BrisFestival @The_Good_Room Brilliant! @leighsales How can people have so much time on their hands to notice that?

@mbmpolicy And here am I thinking Scotland was known for Haggis. @bjakd @the_shb Shocking! @melly_singer All I read then was selfies plus Sydney @lauraelvery Oh, it's useful. Thank you (although I'm in regional Vic, not Melb). @the_shb Great work here Sarah. Thank you for highlighting this shocking neglect. @the_shb This is shocking. Was this information available to the families of those people in the home? @callapilla I hear you. I'm crazily whipping up a batch of scones without a recipe. @frippet Tasmanian authors seriously rock. @NewYorker You tweeted this because you hate me and you want me and the whole wide world to know it.

@lithub LOVE! @slamup Not many things shock me these days, but this does. @writingNSW Not slipping out of jim-jams. The one clear benefit of this whole pandemic. @LibbydeQ @Writers_Vic @varuna I agree Libby. This fictional scenario probably plays out more than we know. @PenguinUKBooks @Literacy_Trust I LOVE THEM ALL! What a brilliant idea. @ronsie16 @LucyTreloar Sounds great! @MadWomansKnitti @Writers_Vic @varuna I really don't know Marian.... @MadWomansKnitti @Writers_Vic @varuna Oh same! But I feel sad for struggling writers who need and deserve $$.

@AnsonCameron That’s commitment. We just rocked up to the local wine bar and drank. @jrhennessy Anyone else slightly concerned about this trend? @rasta_dad @jrhennessy Yep, this whole shaming thing does not sit well with me either. @LaTrobeSport @latrobe What a brilliant idea! @LibbydeQ Jobs for humans!

Unpopular opinion: I secretly hated The Smiths in the 80s, but pretended to like them so I would seem cool. @gabriellecj @subbie An important issue. I'll be buying. Thank you for writing Gabrielle Jackson. @yumichild @guidomelo1 No one is perfect. We don’t know her story. What she said was silly, but the online goading is a worry. @AnsonCameron Right here.
