I manage a bunch of different twitter accounts and though hootsuite makes it vastly easier, it can still be a pain to go through all my tabs and check each account for mentions and DMs to respond to. What I'd like to be able to do is assign more than one twitter account to a column, thereby being able to create an overview tab which has a column for all my DMs, a column for all my mentions, and a column for all my sent tweets. If I used hootsuite's scheduled tweet function I would want an aggregated scheduled tweet column, too. I don't think I'd use an aggregated timeline at all, the sheer number of tweets would make it virtually useless, but some people might find it useful.

We’ll review if this is possible with Twitter’s API.
One of my columns is a twitter list. It's a very focused list, but lately it's getting crowded by retweets. I would like to keep this stream focused to just the people in the list. I do not want to see the retweets in this stream.
Please offer an option where we can hide retweets in a stream.17 votes
This is an interesting idea! We’ll look at how we can add this feature to streams in the future. Thanks for your feedback!
While typing my thoughts and if some of the thoughts extend, I'd like to have hootsuite just cut it out into a new tweet rather than limit the tweet.... me tweeting... and than having to type the later half on a new tweet. Why can't it just happen as I write?17 votes
This may help users who constantly come into conflict with the Twitter character limit.
While it is great that you can export archives as a CSV file, many tweets have commas as part of the message and that breaks the Excel import. Suggest that you allow other delimiters like tab or special characters that you can specify.17 votes
We’ll consider additional file formats for exporting.
I would love a tab format that looks more like email (gmail would be an excellent example). Allow me to nest these tabs as well, and to expand and collapse. This will allow Hootsuite to accomodate more than 20 tabs at the top. Also... when I am in the tab, assume that those are the social media accounts I am posting to.17 votes
We are considering further ways to improve functionality with tabs.
Facebook now allows 5k characters in a wall post. Hootsuite still only allows 420 characters to be published to your wall on Facebook, which was the old limit. Update Hootsuite please so we can publish 5k characters! Thanks! :)16 votes
We hope to increase the limit in the near future.
We’d like to add more options for Ow.ly image hosting in the future.
I have an album called "picture of the day" so this is the reason. Thanks.16 votes
We’ll look into whether Facebook’s API currently supports this.
Cleaning out the direct message inbox either with Twitter or though clients like HootSuite is a nightmare having to do it one message at a time. The ability to select multiple messages (even a "select all" capability) then delete those selected would be a huge plus.16 votes
We agree that batch deletion of messages within your DM inbox would improve usability.
Sometimes we get a call from a client to pause all activity for a period of hours/days because of some approval delay or unrelated crisis. At the moment we go into the Monthly view and drag all the scheduled stuff out an extra period of time. It would be great just to have a pause button that pauses all scheduled comms, ideally at a Team level (because a team usually works on content across one Twitter and one FB account)16 votes

I think it would be be great to see a user's entire Twitter timeline in Hootusite.16 votes
We’ve recently updated this feature to provide 50 status updates in the Twitter timeline. We’ll consider the feasibility of displaying unlimited numbers of statuses in the future.
Currently, PDF, DOC and ODT documents are put up for download. They could be easily converted for reading. This could be done in cooperation with any of the free services. It would aid greatly people to stay online, comment and click more.16 votes
We’ll see further ways to make documents more functional with HootSuite and Ow.ly.
Klout filtering disappears with each click onto another stream. Keep it there!16 votes
This would improve usability with Klout.
I'd like to set up streams based on a keyword and then filter results by location (UK, London, etc))

This is currently possible using geocode arguments, but not yet possible with the “near:” argument. We’ll look into this as a possible in the future.
As in if I want to filter out tweets from all users that include "bieber" as part of their username, I would use "-user:*bieber*" that way "@iluvbieber", "@bieber4lyfe" and "@heartbieber4eva" would never show up in my search.15 votes
Interesting idea! We’ll look at the feasibility of this type of feature in the future. Thanks!
It would be an amazing feature if fan pages could schedule a poll to begin at a certain time and track the results directly through HootSuite.15 votes
We hope to extend Facebook functionality in the upcoming future.
In order for those managing multiple accounts to be able to schedule updates for round-the-world time zones.15 votes
This would be interesting for users who are collaborating across the world from each other.
This tag is supported by the Open Graph protocol: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/opengraph/15 votes
Interesting suggestion. We’ll examine this further.
Allow the user to disable audio notifications, but maintain the visual notification on the tab. Audio notifications get annoying.15 votes
We hope to develop more options for notifications in future releases.
I would like to be able to use the calender scheduler to schedule smaller bulk posts by just clicking on what days it should be posted.15 votes
We hope to make batch scheduling more user-friendly to users.
