Cornwall, pleased to see someone.




Bizarrely, Twitter archive downloads don't include others' replies to your tweets, or tweets to which you reply, e.g.:

/ I say something
// Someone replies
/// I reply to them
... and so it's impossible to show tweet trees involving third parties correctly. Until I figure out something smarter I've just indented my replies, & good luck and bon voyage.
