Proud of #Spain. Might be the diet, but I doubt it—chorizo, fried foods, and late dinners don't seem that healthy. It's more likely a strong public health system. And let's not underestimate human warmth and friendliness. https://t.co/YvZrqeMeAp

Hey @BBCNews it's good to see murdered women being reported, but maybe you could have mentioned the UK news that 100s of women (maybe more) have been out on bikes today to raise money and highlight exactly this problem. @JeanHatchet #RideForMurderedWomen https://t.co/SYo5NfUzsc

2017 FBI murder stats

Rifle murders: 403
Knife murders: 1591
Handgun murders: 7032https://t.co/8lVFKzetHY

If Beto thinks it's obvious we should ban AK-47s and AR-15s, then surely he thinks it's obvious we should ban knives and handguns.

Logic, please.

Cuadrilla who run the UK's only active #fracking site have apologised to residents after last week's earthquake and said they'll repair any damage.

The simple fact though is that fracking is dangerous and shouldn't be allowed to continue! @friends_earth https://t.co/J7Pm0MVRRG

Mucha gente se ríe de las religiones que determinan apriori cómo debes actuar en cada acción minúscula de tu vida, sin darse cuenta de que estamos ante una nueva doctrina que determina apriori cómo debes actuar en cada acción minúscula de tu vida. https://t.co/UA04BweVQG

I simply don't understand how the Government can insist on slaughtering badgers - cruel and ineffective - while doing nothing to protect farms from intensification of agriculture, which worsens the spread of disease in cows. https://t.co/qYFBHS7lom

"They feel like the house is burning down around them while they sit still and study for exams." A brilliantly insightful piece. How lucky are the students of @templecarrigGS to have philosophy in their classroom and @susankyne as their teacher. https://t.co/YiEgF8kO9f
