I suggest you ...

Please add a stream to track new followers

Being able to track and respond to new followers is essential. This stream option is available on TweetDeck, but I would rather use HootSuite. I hate having to switch back and forth...besides, the TweetDeck app eats up tons of memory and slows my laptop down...a lot!

    You can now add a “New Followers” stream to track your new followers. This stream will display this information starting with newest followers at the top.
    Note that the stream will display their latest tweet, including timestamp. The time displayed is not the time at which they followed you.
    Enjoy!

        Hi I suppose it's only available for the online version? Tried to add the stream on hootsuite for Iphone lastest IOS7 version and I do not see it yet.

      • C J PayneC J Payne commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Great , pleased to see it. However, when I tried to DM a new follower, Hootsuite told me they were not following me!

      • Zach BowersZach Bowers commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        A stream would be an incredibly useful service for us. Not only do we want to please our followers, we want to do it quickly. Need a beta tester? We want to get the ball rolling on this!

      • Jenny HaywardJenny Hayward commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I do believe there are merits to having our followers as a dedicated stream. This allows us to compare our presence and growth in a new metric, with live numbers and allows us to engage with them in a timely manner.

        Thank you for your consideration!

        Hootsuite rocks but like everyone else i think a dedicated stream for followers/new followers would be a great addition.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        We like to reply to new followers as soon as they follow us. A stream would be extremely useful. Sproutsocial does a good job of this. Thanks!

      • ReneeRenee commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I don't see these as being "new followers" but all followers. How can I distinguish new one from the rest? Can you provide more details?

      • PaulPaul commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes, I would appreciate if you were able to work this into your fantastic application.

        Thank you.

        I have found this really useful in tweetdeck - especially to allow a quick thank you to new followers allowing you to engage with them straight away!

        I like HootSuite enough to be a paying customer and I've already suggested it to a number of my friends. The lack of this feature is the one thing that keeps me from being able to use the platform exclusively to manage my social media requirements.

      • Alec StansfieldAlec Stansfield commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        You say "New followers can be found in the contact section under each social profile". I don't see any way to determine when each follower started following me. Am I missing something? What I want to do is tween a #FF for my new followers THIS WEEK. Are you saying this info is already provided somewhere?

      • Sarah RomeroSarah Romero commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is a MUST feature. I manage one biz account on Twitter directly on Twitter and so much of the engagement comes from tweeting new followers. Easy b/c Twitter notifies me right away about new followers. I manage another Twitter biz account from Hootsuite and find the lack of this feature limits my ability to engage new followers (not to mention acquiring more followers). It's one of the reasons I probably would look for another platform other than Hoot Suite for the next business account I manage.

        hootsuite needs this function, particularly when you expect people to be paying for the service.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        You used to have this feature via a "formula" app back in 2011. Can you please bring it back....very important for CRM!! Would hate to jump ship from Hootsuite to another app...I really like Hootsuite however, I can't afford to lose customers/fans by not acknowledging them...and social media is ALL about acknowledgement as I'm sure you well know. Thank you!
