An amazing thing happened, Thanks for the sticky
at 16:03 29 Aug 2020

Thank you for putting up with the sticky post for the last month, last night marks one of the most amazing community accomplishments of my life. We raised well over £4000 for Special Effect, made largely possible due to TWTD's promotion and community for kicking off the fundraiser. TWTD users contributed over £150 of the final total before it started, people were comfortable donating to the cause in the greatest 24 hours of my life.

Thanks to the people on here who also showed up to the stream and cheered us on, as well as donating more during the course of the night.

The money raised will likely go toward this amazing project

Thank you all once again.

It seems I found the Tweet of the Day in the process...

Digital Fundraiser for the Special Effect charity
at 11:03 5 Aug 2020

Greetings TWTD, I hope all are safe and well!

My name is WKJ, otherwise known as http://www.twitch.tv/WKJezz and I spend a lot of time in space playing Elite Dangerous by Cambridge based Frontier Developments.

As an ambassador of Elite Dangerous for Frontier Developments, and close to Twitch Partner, I am given unique opportunities to use the platform I have to make money for good causes.

On the 28th Aug - 29th Aug 2020 (9:30AM), I will be doing a 24 hour stream in aid of Special Effect, a UK charity setup to provide people of all ages with accessibility needs a chance to games and feel more connected and part of the world.

The aim of the stream is to raise over £750, a sum that could buy flexible fixings to enable a correct and firm hold of controller, joystick extensions, to potentially enable greater control, and/or deliver adaptive gaming setups as well as other specialist equipment.

If you can afford to, we would appreciate it if you would be able to visit our campaign link at https://tiltify.com/@wkjezz/operation-redeye (please include TWTD in the comment if you donate so I can attribute a total to TWTD)

I appreciate 2020 has left many of us tight, and in a difficult position, so if you can not afford to donate, visiting our Twitch link on the 29th August, even if the tab is muted, will increase our visibility on the platform and potentially source more donations from your "lurk".

I appreciate any help you can give, and as always COYB!

Everyone's least favourite anti-hero is back to his old tricks again.


How do some people come to conclusions that this sort of thing is ok?

Nout else to do but to let those that like to tell it how it is, show us how its done. Remember though, friends and family come before political lines, time for some to make amends get on with our own lives and hope that the fear and smear are just huff and puff.
In this difficult/celebratory time, please consider

The feelings and heartache from one of our close friends in football. AZ losing 4-0 to Man U tonight is much more heartbreaking than anything you'll see on the general tab tonight.
Ginger chewing gum
at 12:17 12 Dec 2019

I know some of you plucky go getters are into your holistics on here, so didn't know if you are aware of if ginger chewing gum is a thing, and if so where to get it.

Okay, so, I know it is a thing, but I am not looking to spend £20 on 90 bits of gum just to remedy seasickness on the ferry over to Ireland next week.

I think it is a good time to reflect on how serious the virtual world can be, especially if you own a lease on a domain that someone else wishes to have.

Elite Dangerous and VR
at 03:24 10 Dec 2019

I know there are a few out there who enjoy this title from our lovely local developers, but was curious if you explored this with VR? I am currently doing a course on VR development so naturally decided the best way to spend my time is play rather than spend time with course material.

Curious to know what peoples experience are, currently renting a VR headset for the duration of this course and naturally instantly want to consider buying the thing because it is great being a child in the form of man.

Rodrigo (man City) with an absolute stunner on the edge of the D. Almost as good as Skuse!
Online Premier League footie
at 10:32 3 Dec 2019

For those with a prime account that has a bit of an itch for footie, and don't shill out for BT or Sky, Amazon debuts their Premier League month of coverage tonight.

Burnley V Man City
Palace V Bournemouth

And yet probably more tasty is tomorrow's offerings
Man U v Spurs
Liverpool v Everton
Leicester v Watford
Chelsea v Villa
Wolves v Wet Spam

Seems the pundits are Danny Higgingbottom, Eni Aluko, Jermaine Jenas, Clinton Morrison and Karen Carney on quite a relaxed backdrop. I have faith the coverage might actually seem down to earth and no nonsense.

Absolutely awful pain to experience as a parent. We often see footballers existing in a different plain of existence to our own, but awful moments like these show how alike we all are.
