HootSuite – a one stop destination for all your Twitter needs

HootSuite was previously covered on Twi5 back when it was called BrightKit. Well, times have changed, the site has been renamed and it’s better and bigger now. So I thought I would profile it all over again!

HootSuite is arguably one of the most widely used twitter web apps around. They recently launched an iPhone app about which you can read here. If you see a trending topic and fail to understand what it’s all about, HootSuite will explain it to you!

Multiple Twitter Account

HootSuite allows you to add multiple twitter accounts. You will get a tabbed view allowing you to easily switch between multiple accounts.

Support for Facebook, Pingfm and WordPress Blogs

Add your Facebook account and start posting from HootSuite. WordPress.com users (they intend to add self hosted WordPress support soon) can add their wordpress blogs and publish posts to multiple wordpress blogs from within HootSuite. Pingfm has been integrated as well.


Share links using the HootSuite shortener ow.ly and you can view stats  about these links. The stats can help you gain insight on the clicks and visitor pattern for the links that you share on Twitter.

Keyword Tracking, Search, Twitter Lists

You can have separate columns inside HootSuite for tracking keywords, twitter search results and view tweets from particular twitter lists.

Best Tweet Scheduler

There are quite a few sites that allow scheduling tweets but I like HootSuite’s tweet scheduler the most. It’s convenient and easy to use. You can always come back and edit the scheduled tweets.

HootSuite Bookmarklet (this is AWESOME)

The HootSuite bookmarklet is something that I just can’t tweet without. It has a sexy interface, loads fast and lets me share websites with my twitter friends at the click of a button. If I want some tweets to be posted at a later date, I can simply schedule the tweets right within the bookmarklet.


HootSuite has quite a few apps that compliment the web app. There’s a HootSuite desktop app for Mac and PC users. Firefox and Chrome extensions are available as well. For Greasemonkey lovers, there are a few Greasemonkey scripts available.
