Highlight New Messages until read
Something like Chromebird where new messages are highlighted until clicked (or read) that way I can run hootsuite in the background, but know what are the new status updates right away!
Allow shading of read/new-since last refreshed tweets. If you're following lots of people it can be difficult to see where you left off in relation to what's new. Either shading or letting users put some kind of temporary placeholder would be great. You can't always remember where you left off.
I like to go through all the tweets in my streams and often loose my place. With so many keyword being tracked, my streams are constantly updated. Whenever these are refreshed, I loose my place and waste a lot of time trying to pick up where I left off.
We’ll look into further ways to enhance usability with HootSuite in regards to new messages.
