Today we’ve launched two new Twitter accounts that help answer one of life's eternal questions, 'What's about to start on Radio 4 or 4 Extra?'

If you follow @NowOnBBCRadio4 and @NowOnBBC4Extra you’ll receive a tweet just before the next programme is on with a link to listen online if you’re not near a radio. Scrolling back through the timeline is also a useful way to catch up with programmes you might have missed.

We know that many Radio 4 and 4 Extra listeners use Twitter to find out what’s on the station but we’re not able to tweet about every programme from @bbcradio4 and @bbcradio4extra. We hope that this automated service will help listeners miss less of the great array of programmes on the two networks.

It also means that we can we concentrate on developing the main @bbcradio4 and @bbcradio4extra accounts as places where we can highlight more hidden gems and clips, share photos and talk with our listeners.

    @NowOnBBCRadio4 says Thought For The Day is NOT separate from Today. Can we have robust interviews of Thought guests now?

    Just heard the article re Personal Independence Payments (PIP). I stopped working in June/July 2011 to look after my terminally ill wife, she finally died in Dec 2012. Four months later (April 2013) I was hospitalized for 24days, by the end of which our 24yr old son, who still lived at home, found the whole stress of the previous 20 months too much and was taken into a psychiatric unit for 6 weeks, from which he was discharged in June 2013. By the end of June I applied for his PIP, it finally came through in January this year, 6.5mnths later! I was told on one occasion by the DWP that they were under no time pressure to handle these cases, because "you cannot live on PIP".
