Tony Nicklinson recently turned to Twitter so he could tell people why he wants a doctor to end his life.
Hello world. I am tony nicklinson, I have locked-in syndrome and this is my first ever tweet. #tony
Read yesterday that the BMA has recommended it change its stance on assisted dying from anti- to neutral. One small step for a man...?#tony
However many of Tony's followers are trying to persuade him his life is worth keeping.
People want to know if I will change my mind because of Twitter. Let's hear the judgement first and maybe I'll tell you.#tony
