Tweet Threads

Sometimes, we report our observations of proceedings in the Court of Protection in the form of threads (sequential tweets) on Twitter. We know that things are easily lost on Twitter, especially as time goes by, so we keep a record of all our tweet threads in the form of pdf documents. You can find links to all our tweet threads below.

If you require access to the text of a thread in a format other than the pdfs available here (e.g. if you use a screen-reader), please feel free to contact us via our Contact page and we will do our best to provide the content in a more accessible format.
