I have had a message from June with regard to the problem she has been having posting sightings on the HDNS website. Her Orange mobile phone has failed and she had to replace it. The Orange service is now run by EE. After several visits to the EE shop in Harrogate where June bought the new phone she has been informed that EE do not support text messaging to a Twitter account. The only way with EE is to use the internet which June does not have access to. Alternatives are being investigated to continue with the reporting service.
