My twitter feed is literally just a list of people telling other people what to do. I have no instructions for you. This tweet does not contain an imperative.

I just agreed to these terms and conditions for something that Apple want to install on my computer. I can’t read them and still have no idea what was installed, if anything.

Shopping online. Entered credit card details, then got hit with an obvious phishing attempt (nonsensical URL, distorted logos, amateurish layout, asking for way too much info). Is this for real @anz_nz? twitter.com/bnnt/status/1106137865778421762/photo/…
