I suggest you ...

add keyboard shortcuts to every action in every version of HootSuite, especially the Web

It would also be nice to be able to edit them in case there's a conflict and to be able to switch them off (this should apply to every enhancement). At the least give me post, schedule, choose network and navigate the current column. Mousing just isn't an efficient mechanism when you mostly type or read.

    Since this feature request was created, we’ve added some keyboard shortcuts, such as “Shift + Enter” to send.

    We continue to consider more ways to enhance HootSuite with keyboard shortcuts.

        While I would like to post with Hootsuite, I return to Tweetdeck to read them. It has shortcuts for selecting and scrolling tabs and can clear tabs once they are read. It would be great if Hootsuite could adopt something like that so it is the best Twitter reader as well as sender.

        We can use Gmail without a mouse. We can use Windows without a mouse. Someone with a masochistic bent can even use Mac OSX without a mouse.

        If Google, Microsoft, and Apple can all figure it out, I believe in the team at Hootsuite.

        Bring us a mouseless interface, please, for the people who don't (or can't) use mice. We're not strange. Some of us were born that way.

        Tab and Shift/Enter worked for me, insert image/video and all that fun stuff would be SWEET!!!

        Have a shortcut to send, but not to compose a tweet. Just wish keyboard shortcuts weren't an after thought. There are many of use out there that prefer to navigate and function through keyboard input, without the need for the mouse. Especially with my RSI - I prefer to stick to the keyboard as much as possible.

        Would love a keyboard shortcut to refresh my feeds (as I typically have it on manual refresh).

        I'd like shortcut functions: for example 1,2,3...=choose stream, n=choose next tweet, a=reply, A=reply to All, r=RT, +=display conversation, *=add star, u=update stream

        We need shortcuts for navigating the entire suite: switching to new tweet box, scrolling through tweets, replying, DMing, switching columns, switching tabs.
