The 2012 election broke records with 31.7 million political tweets. Election Day was by far the most tweeted about event in US political history.
Hallelujah Chorus from Handel's Messiah. It's first ever performance was on this day in 1742. The location was Ireland, the musicians and singers were Irish. Handel is thought of as one of the great German composers but I like to think of this one as an essentially Irish tune! https://t.co/zTy4Ro6Lb7
The judgment of those who decided a €292k salary was the only way to, ultimately, entice a senior civil servant to move from one department to another is highly questionable. Wonder what repercussions, if any, there will be for this: https://t.co/iEUM4yN23c
Viola da Gamba, this is my favourite instrument. It's a bit of a guitar cello cross. It was popular in the Renaissance period and is much older than the cello. This song, "Loves Farewell" is from 1605 Scotland by Tobias Hume https://t.co/5K4vHNZ8g3
This day last year, after losing my job as a teacher due to lockdown, I began playing music outside my home and shared my first ever video here on Twitter. I could never have imagined they would be seen and loved by so many people around the world. Thank you all so much https://t.co/Qjrj0iVD40
1/4 There is a lot of concern about the potential impact of NIAC's vaccine decision on Ireland's #COVID19vaccine rollout plan This thread outlines why the plan isn’t materially under threat from the NIAC decision to restrict availability of this vaccine to those aged 60+.

Vera Twomey has sent an open letter to @MichealMartinTD and @DonnellyStephen which has also been released to the media. In it she appeals for their help for everyone in Ireland who needs access to medicinal #cannabis. #talktovera https://t.co/Z3yIC3TOqN
I would urge you all to read this open letter from @veras1, in which she asks Minister @DonnellyStephen to honour a commitment for a follow up meeting re the use of medicinal cannabis in Ireland. I spoke with Vera last week & a more passionate advocate I've never met. #talktovera https://t.co/mS5N5W0Fcp
Its astounding that in the middle of the one of the worlds toughest COVID lockdowns that the HPSE decide to move to 5 day reporting. There is no reason in the digital age that these reports cannot be automated and posted online @CcoHse @paulreiddublin https://t.co/3Wva1O9QEL
Yesterday my beloved husband Kieran died. I don’t want to share more than that publicly for a while. I will be absent from work and other things for a while too. 38 is no age to die but my darling certainly did more in that time than many people do in 80 years. https://t.co/4bL8gzCREs
I think the evidence that Covid spreads through air, which has been apparent since the earliest days of the pandemic, was ignored and denied because its implications required institutional change. 'Distance and wash hands' puts emphasis on individual. https://t.co/4UU30QVTch
This day 70 years ago – 11 April 1951 – Dr Noel Browne resigned as Minister for Health, after other government ministers withdrew their support for his Mother and Child Scheme. Archbishop John Charles McQuaid had written that the scheme was “opposed to Catholic social teaching.” https://t.co/9qMCLvPNKc
