Realtime twitter update
Right now, the shortest HootSuite update interval is 2 minutes (unless you pull a manual update). TweetDeck has implemented realtime Twitter updating. HootSuite should do the same.
We are currently considering ways to stream social network data.

I regularly teach Hootsuite to individuals and organizations, mostly in the media business in Denmark. This issue almost always comes up - many news people are eager to switch from TweetDeck, but this is the one missing feature holding them back.
It would be great with an update to the original 2011 response to this feature request. Thanks.
Trying hootsuite for the first time having moved from Tweetdeck I find the interface refreshing and good to work with however I agree that the one thing that may stop me using Hootsuite is the lack of real time refresh. It is the only this that's missing.
Please implement as soon as you can !
Has there been any update on this? The auto-refresh rate of once every 2 mins is inadequate if the accounts we follow are tweeting regularly. Every two minutes the home feed splits as it has 30+ tweets posted.
If it's not possible to have an auto-refresh feature, how about the option to reduce the refresh rate to once every 30 seconds (or similar)? This would go some way to addressing the problem.
It has now been over two years since this question was originally posed and it would be great to have some feedback.
Hootsuite is useless without the real-time updating... Man I miss my tweetdeck!!!
Hey Chris that's your response? How about answering the damn question. This corporate side step is crap. Are you going to implement real time or not. My original Seesmic had real time updating. This new policy stinks. I was VERY happy with Seesmic the way it was. This corporate move to MAKE me adapt to your way is typical. Make the change or I'm gone back to Tweekdeck.

We are almost one year later. What's the situation?

Just made the switch from Tweetdeck. Real-time updating is the feature I miss the most as I participate in a lot of Twitter chats. I'd love to see this, or at least a faster refresh rate, in HootSuite
