A few weeks ago, we announced that we were chosen as one of the 10 finalists for Twitter’s very first worldwide startup competition — Hatch. Last night was the night. Ten startups selected from 30 countries presented their products to a panel of judges at Twitter headquarters in San Francisco, and we’re excited to announce that Haystack TV was one of the three winners! It was a lot of fun getting to meet so many fantastic startups from around the world.
Also, Haystack TV 2.0 went live this week. This is our biggest update yet, and it allows users to better tailor their daily news headlines. With the new profile page, users can now add favorites on thousands of people, places, topics and sources that we categorize across thousands of videos each day. There is also a mute function to exclude any topic or source. You can download the update on both iOS and Android. We hope you'll give it a try and let us know what you think!
Finally, we’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of our users for your continued support. We couldn’t have done it without you! Here are some pictures from Twitter Hatch.
