UberMedia Apps Reinstated By Twitter

February 25th, 2011 | Comments Off | Posted in Internet

UberMedia programs such as UberTwitter, TweekDeck and Twidroyd allow Twitter users to make money by promoting deals and advertisements for companies they like. Unfortunately, abuse of this program caused Twitter to take a closer look at exactly how these programs work. The apps in question were temporarily suspended for a few days, which gave Twitter enough time to talk to the owners of UberMedia. In the end, both companies agreed to continue their business relationship after resolving a few issues that revolved around privacy and trademark infringement.

Because of UberMedia’s easy to use platform thousands of Internet users are learning about

affiliate marketing for the very first time. Other similarly designed app developers began voice concerns over Twitter’s somewhat vague policies. All of UberMedia’s apps don’t focus on affiliate marketing, however, Twitter became concerned when the company realized that the technology allowed users to be inundated with messages and virtual spam after signing up with the program. UberMedia contends that all users found to be violating the company’s rules are immediately terminated. Because UberMedia cannot survive without Twitter, a deal was forged.

Perhaps UberMedia will begin to focus on its real time tweet technology which allows users to follow their favorite celebrities, friends and family members or search for specific tags. If UberMedia is able to continue to acquire smaller social networking companies such as Mixx, then the company will be able to create its own microblogging website. Social networking can go in any direction in the future, but the one factor that propels all websites is the sharing of information amongst users. Twitter has released an official statement that explains the company’s stance on apps and web based programs that allow users to make money with their website. As long as UberMedia can proactively monitor its users it should never have any issues with Twitter again.

Business Owners Get $300 Million Tax Break From The US House

February 11th, 2011 | No Comments | Posted in News

If you have been forced to lay off any of your employees in the last year then you are in luck. A new bill headed by Governor Chris Gregoire, a democrat from Washington, will ensure that employers get a tax break on unemployment insurance. As numerous states have been continuously extending unemployment benefits continuously, employers have to pay a portion of their ex-employees unemployment benefits. Although the new bill must still be passed by the Senate, Gregoire is cautiously optimistic that small and large corporations alike will be able to get the assistance that they need in the coming weeks.

All of the $300 million earmarked in the bill will not go to employers. Job placement will be a major focal point, with an emphasis on education and training. Politicians feared that high unemployment rates would cause insurance companies to raise unemployment insurance rates. This would cause smaller companies to go out of business, and larger companies would be more inclined to set up shop overseas. As the country struggles to recover from this recession, the number of new jobs being created has been slow but steady.

Chris Gregoire think that the new tax break bill will be passed by the Senate as early as this coming Friday, but the bill faces opposition from the Republican Party. The bill is being criticized as wasteful spending, but ultimately members of the Senate will need to cast their votes according to what their constitutes believes. With election season coming up, the future of this bill be influenced by politicians that are thinking about reelection.
