How can we improve Hootsuite?

Include retweeter's information in the column for user's own tweets retweeted

As it's already present in other types of retweet columns (it seems absurd on the column for other tweets retweeted by the user, though).

    We’re excited to share that you are now able to see who retweeted your tweets in your streams. To do so, click the indicative text (ie. 7 retweets) underneath the tweet and a scrollable window will appear.

    More information can be found in our blog post ( and our Help Desk article (

    Thank you for all of your interest in HootSuite!

        Thanks for the progress on this. Could you improve it further and add @reply and DM links next to the username? Making it so we can copy and paste the list of retweeters would also be helpful. Thanks!

        NimbleCRM have figured out a way to do it so it must be possible, this is an important feature IMO

        I sent a tweet out that got retweeted about 10 times but saw only ONE 'mention' of the tweet. Why is this happening?

      • HeberHeber commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Hey guys, what do you think about the dashboard have sound notifications everytime a receive a mention or a RT?
        You offer just the option to have a notification everytime i receive any message in my timeline, and it is really anoying.

        Every other twitter app that I use has the ability to see Who retweeted our tweets AND then the ability to immediately reply to them to thank them for the retweet. This is a very common twitter practice that Hootsuite does NOT make available or easy to do.

      • ArianeAriane commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        @SW. Couldn't agree more. I can't see who's retweeted us and the autocomplete @ is not working. How am I supposed to remember the twitter name for everyone we follow?!?

      • SWSW commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I just started a free trial of HootSuite and this has already been an issue for me and my team. It's making me look at other options. Before I can consider continuing with a paid service, I have to be able to justify the cos to my manager--she's going to want to know about efficiencies, ease of use, and if I have to go elsewhere to see such basic information, it's not going to work for us. A big part of building our follower base is to thank the existing followers who retweet us--some of them are employees and they appreciate the recognition. A search of "@____" isn't working, either.

        until recently could see New Style retweets in my @noxhanti search stream w/ the names of the accounts retweeting. The new "My tweets retweeted" column is not much use to me as I don't know who is retweeting...have to go to twitter to find out. Like to acknowledge/rt ppl who rt me + it's good to know what works for which people in my network

        It's been over a year since HootSuite posted they'd consider the suggestion. Unless I'm missing it, we still can't see who's retweeted tweets. Come on guys..get on it!

      • Ben MaydatBen Maydat commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I can't even think this is not currently possible ! For community management it is very important. I don't like to switch to Tweet Deck to see who retweeted. Please change this ! Thanks a lot

      • ChristineChristine commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        You can definitely do this...SproutSocial shows you this information, which is why I still even use them. But it would be SO great to have this in Hootsuite and all of my reporting in one place.

      • SarahAdminSarah (Admin, Hootsuite) commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        For the search, it needs to be exactly "RT @HootSuite" ie) your own username. If you delete the space, or do not add the RT it won't pull all of the results. Let me know if you are having any difficulties!
