When it’s a tragedy don’t tweet – telephone

It was truly shocking news to hear of Amanda Holden losing a baby son seven months into her pregnancy.

Have your say

I have friends who email and text all the time. I would much prefer to speak to them and I do. Technology is so advanced that it is the way of the world. However, I think with celebrities it is a trend to tweet. Amanda's friends probably do ring her but this is more of a public unity of support from the celebrities. We all need support in whatever form it is. My heart goes out to her and all those who have dealt with loosing a child. Does it matter how we show our support as long as we do.

What does it matter who printed the article! A mother has lost her child and that is what must be remembered. The pain of loosing anyone close is the most unbearbale pain ever.However, I cannot imagine what it is like to loose a child. The advantage of twitter and facebook enables people to access these sites when they choose. I am not a fan but being bombarded with phonecalls is not always best either. Amanda is one of those celebrities who is natural and intelligent. She also deserves time to grieve and be left in peace.

This is a copy of an article I read in mail online. Publish your own thoughts not someone else's.

I didn't think thinly veiled and pointless news articles like this still got wrote or published. Mean spirited, empty filler. The writer should try to live in the worlds reality more, not critique it to halo his own outdated opinions.

After reading the above article I disagree, people know that the last thing amanda wants is to talk to people, so they leave messages for when shes up to it to read, also I feel people feel bad if they dont send their condolences, and they just want to let the family know they are thinking of them at this awful time. Unless youve been such a tradjedy you cannot comrehend what it is like my heart goes out to amanda and her family.xxxxxxxxxxxx

Amanda Holden nor her PR would need to specifically read her mates' pages. If you send someone a message, eg @amandaholden, it would automatically appear on Amanda Holden's twitter home page as a message to her. Sorry to be pedantic, but that's the way twitter works.

What do you think of rail services in Cumbria?

Good. But there is always room for improvement

Not good: There needs to be much more investment

I rarely travel by rail
