I've never found much use for Twitter but the media likes to go on about it so I occationally browse it to see if maybe there is something I'm missing.
One post by BBC Ouch caught my attention twitter.com/bbcouch/status/...
"There has never been a visibly disabled person on The Apprentice. Why? "
Which shows a common assumption that somehow being visibly disabled is more significant than a disability which isn't visible. Scary coming from the BBC.
A couple of replies I liked and re-tweeted..

@bbcouch @FordCarole err is there a particular reason why you state 'visibly' disabled ?"
"Rachel Garrick @RC_Garrick Oct 16
@bbcouch shame on you! Katie Hopkins has very severe epilepsy. Not all disabilities are visable."
