hey if you or anyone you know is looking for an experienced, self-taught Go or Python developer with a background in Physics or security, I'm your gal!

boosts are very much appreciated โค๏ธ

This tweet on the official UK Civil Service account was only up for 9 minutes but got 38k likes, 36.5k retweets plus all the comments. Guess someone has lost their job over it. That reaction to it, in such a short time frame, shows just how much BoJo has misjudged public opinion on this.

It is quite apparent that the internet needs to move away from #cloudflare

> Riot police fired tear gas and water cannon at demonstrators, who were wearing face masks to protect against the spread of coronavirus.

Well, that too. ๐Ÿ˜€

> The rally comes despite earlier warnings from authorities against unauthorised assembly and a ban on large public gatherings to enforce social distancing.

> Some protesters threw objects such as umbrellas and water bottles at officers, and used bins and other debris to set up road blocks.
