Week 29 of 2020 is a simplified Twitter digest whilst I’m “taking a break” from work. (I’ll tidy up tags and links when I get back)

What a no-brainer! Our old chum @cole007 is illustrating a graphic version of @MichaelRosenYes’ You’re Thinking About Tomatoes. #instapledge 🍅 https://t.co/XYrLhzWRUq July 12, 2020 at 08:07PM

This is the first product I’ve seen in AGES that had me smiling all the way through the video pitch, thinking “Gamechanger!” (Great name too) https://t.co/njbYau6UQY https://t.co/iijdnIryjU July 13, 2020 at 05:07PM

Why is it mandatory to wear face-masks in shops but not in schools? In fact, according to DFE guidance, it’s mandatory to REMOVE face-masks in schools. Where’s the logic in that? #PoliticalRant July 14, 2020 at 10:07AM

Tinkering with artwork for the next @housefinesse mix in Canva on my phone, getting live feedback from @MrQwest. 15 years of the podcast (to the day) and it’s come to this. https://t.co/MzoqQPAHiE July 14, 2020 at 10:07PM

When will the trend of crappy twee music covers come to an end? I’ve just seen a viagra advert using Proclaimers’ 500 Miles as the soundtrack. July 14, 2020 at 10:07PM

Any other team leaders feel like cheerleaders on morning stand-ups? I do find it helps encourage teamwork and positive thinking but can come across quite cringe-worthy. July 15, 2020 at 10:07AM

Pro tip: when changing landline provider, make sure you request an Active Line Takeover. Otherwise, you could get an unexpected bill from the old provider like I did today. July 15, 2020 at 09:07PM

Switched from @guardian donation model to digital subscription – the only rag I actually tolerate for news. Whilst I avoid the news for the main part, they have a special place in my iPhone notifications. July 15, 2020 at 10:07PM

Very meta but brilliant idea. I always warn people when I’ll be using icebreakers – it’s only polite. https://t.co/Ht0EQaUweV July 16, 2020 at 08:07PM

I found this approach to tweeting interesting (via @timberners_lee @SolidMit project). Write your tweets as .tweet files in a Github repo – versioned, collaborative editorial process for geeks. https://t.co/CXMRkYtaaW July 16, 2020 at 08:07PM

Sore guitar fingers from practising the new bass tonight. The pain will be worth it though when I’ve learned some Chic classics. 🎸 July 16, 2020 at 10:07PM

Installed Dropbox on the new Mac. Now syncing half a million files from the past 16 years. *enables online-only* July 16, 2020 at 11:07PM

Last day of work before signing off for a week. Not taken this long off since Christmas. Needed. July 17, 2020 at 08:07AM

It’s a pleasure to get this out today – and on a momentous week too. Unbelievable to think 15 years ago, I put a little mix on a WordPress site which turned into one of the longest running music podcasts. Loyal followers are key to it’s longevity though. https://t.co/9SXHdf6uWZ July 17, 2020 at 02:07PM

Time for a week off. 🖐🎤 July 17, 2020 at 06:07PM
