The Paralympics is now over and the medal table is as follows:
- CHN - 223
- GB - 135
- UKR - 107
- US - 106
- AUS - 73
Before the Paralympics started, I talked about the large amount of tickets still for sale. However, once they started selling them at unbelievably low prices, the seats were filled during the games.
Worryingly though, the official website let me buy tickets, even though the Paralympics has ended.
Q) Did you watch any of it? If so, what did you think of it?

On Monday, Twitter released an update which has been expected for a few months, after pressure from users. These users were using China's version of Twitter as a main example of what they wanted, as it has no character limit whatsoever.
Now when you tweet, photos, videos, GIFs, polls, sub-tweets and replies won't count towards your 140-character limit. However, third-party sites like Buffer and Hootsuite haven't adapted to this change, but I'm not sure why.
Q) Have you noticed the difference?

October is soon approaching, which means Stoptober is also just around the corner.
For those who don't know, Stoptober is a Government campaign aimed at people who want to stop smoking, and so for the whole of October they attempt to go without smoking.
However, people who don't smoke in the first place use the month to give up something that's bad for them. People do it for their own benefit, as well as raising money for charity.
As of June this year, one in five people in the UK smoke, which is a total of 9,600,000 smokers.
Q) Are you taking part?
As I don't smoke, I asked my Twitter followers what I should give up for a month. The most popular answers were: junk food; coffee; soft drinks; sex; chocolate; Twitter; meat, etc.
Quiz Answers: B, C, C, B.
