Longer Tweets and other updates on Twitter

By | September 20th, 2016|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , |

Today Twitter announced that they are finally allowing us longer tweets.  Twitter told us in a blog post in May that they were going to be allowing longer tweets and other updates that were coming that will make changes in the way we tweet.  Today we got some more of those updates. Longer Tweets and other updates on Twitter So, its not really more than 140 characters (which is Twitters trade mark amount of characters that you can use) but now only text matters.   When we started adding Videos, Gifs and Images to our tweets it meant that we lost space in the amount of characters that we can type.  Now that all changes. You now don't lose any characters,  which is great, as you really didn't have much room left once you'd added your media attachments and hashtags to type a meaningful message, it always had to be very short. Twitter announced the update via a tweet and a video.  Say more about what's happening! Rolling out now: photos, videos, GIFs, polls, and Quote Tweets no longer count toward your 140 [...]

StartUp Home Care Platform Hometouch changing Social Care as we know it

By | September 8th, 2016|Categories: Reviews|Tags: |

Hometouch is an online marketplace for home carers and families to find each other.  As you can imagine for me this tech service which uses Saas was a dream to find.  Getting the carers you want is a very difficult, upsetting and lengthy process for families.   This, let me tell you IS the solution. StartUp Home Care Platform Hometouch changing Social Care as we know it Hometouch uses SaaS, Software as a service to help families find the carer they want at affordable prices and also helps carers get paid the money they deserve.  From what I understand carers can charge the rates they want, (no more minimum wage for them) and Hometouch takes a commission for connecting them with families and running the system. Hometouch was founded by Doctor Jamie Wilson who is a dementia physician in 2015 after he noticed the amount of people waiting for suitable care on the NHS.  The Startup has had three lots of successful funding rounds since then.  I can see why this is such a great idea and already works really well.
