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!
Hi. impressed. but consider adding who followed, and way to direct message link on someones reply
Is there any way of knowing what users of which I follow are following me too? It would be very useful if there was another column, nearby the klout column, which would show if people that I follow are following me too (or aren't). Thanks a lot.
Having a dedicated stream for followers would be great, especially as it would allow you to quickly find / view a twitter user from the streams page without having to switch across to the contacts tab.
The ability to quickly see any new followers and be notified as they follow would be a major advantage coupled with an auto reply feature to thank users for following (or perhaps the ability to schedule a tweet specifically to all new followers from a certain date, so a weekly thank you could be sent to new followers that week).
I'd like to be able to add a stream for "twitter followers" which lists my followers and highlights new ones at the top. on twitter.com this is a standard feature that allows easy communication between new contacts and acts as a notification too.
I find it a serious gap in my twitter experience on hootsuite. Not so cool to be switching away from tabs to the contact sheet and then have to select a profile.
Loving Commun.it. They have a list of new followers, suggestions for new followers and high-value members. Here is their dashboard: http://screencast.com/t/5HVZUgkks.
I noticed that you already have a suggestion for new followers (http://feedback.hootsuite.com/forums/40182-hootsuite-com-web-dashboard/suggestions/1985789-suggest-users-to-follow) which you rejected because Twitter already has this features but ...
Can you bring Twitter's suggestions into Hootsuite? It would certainly be easier to manage multiple accounts if we didn't need to log in/out of Twitter for each one.
And I noticed a similar suggestion to track new followers here: http://feedback.hootsuite.com/forums/40182-hootsuite-com-web-dashboard/suggestions/940921-please-add-a-stream-to-track-new-followers - if anyone wants to vote up just that one suggestion.
Add two new types of streams:
1. To track new followers.
2. Containing the tweets of the followers. May be you can't follow back all of them or even put them on a list. But it's important to keep on an eye on tweets of people that actually follow you so you can interact with them.
I would like the option to add a stream of my followers, rather than just the people that I follow.
That way I can monitor their interactions in real time rather than having to check out individual timelines or profiles to see if they are worth following back. It would also make interacting with followers easier in the same way that the home feed does for accounts that I already follow.
Create the ability to quickly cut and paste new follower usernames for #ff or shootouts.
We would like to be able to use Hootsuite for everything but right now have to login to Twitter to see new followers for our clients. Would be nice if you could add a stream on the client tab to show new followers.
In Tweetdeck, I can review my own list of followings within the search a profile option. It lists all the people I am following in alphabetical order (your tool seems to lists those I am following by date of following). When I select a name, I can see that profile to confirm the user.
With Hootsuite, I have to search all profiles with a bunch of spellings until I find the profile I am looking for.
[Also it would be great if HootSuite could say "no such handle exists" rather than "Twitter seems to be having issues".]
I am a poor speller so I use this feature often to confirm a twitter handle spelling if I am not quite certain how it is spelled.
It would be a boon for all your users if you marked new followers since the last visit to HS. Old TweetDeck did this very effectively. Otherwise, HS is great.
For the work that i do with twitter i need this column, so I have to use another program that allows me to see the new users and contact them.
One thing I really really miss on Hootsuite is a row with new followers which you can follow back immediately. Please add this and I will leave Tweetdeck forever.
To be able to view new followers in a column in the tab (as you can in Tweetdeck). I know question already asked and answer was: "If you click Owl - Contacts, you are able to see people who have followed you, sorted from newest to oldest. You are then able to respond to them as you'd like." But, that's too cumbersome - I want to see them real time in the column on the home screen. Any chance. Only thing stopping me from moving from Tweetdeck to Hootsuite.
Be great to know who just started following you so you can thank them in a timely manner or see if you want to follow them back. Once of your main competitiors already offers this helpful feature.
I like to respond to new followers but my email notifications no longer give me the option to reply, is there an option available in Hootsuit?
Is a column where u see the last people that are following you.
So you can followback or just to know your followers.
Tweetdeck has this option. Check it out.
Twitter stream for seeing and tracking new followers?
Make the column of new fans as tweetdeck and that the timeline is updated at least 1 minute
I really like the TweetDeck "New Followers" stream option: can you add this to HootSuite?
I'm able to track new followers on TweetDeck, but I like the HootSuite app better. Will HootSuite ever add this addition?
Often I would like to engage new Twitter followers of me. Being able to set-up a stream with this filter (new followers in last 7, 14, 21 days, etc) would help ID those I should engage.
I would love to know who is not following me back so I can unfollow them to increase my Twitter following since I have over 2,000 followers.
a pop up with a profile box of new followers, as they follow you.
This in addition to this suggestion regarding followers: http://www.mi6agency.com/2010/04/how-do-i-know-if-someone-is-following-me-on-twitter
Would make Hootsuite even more awesome.
Allow column option that users can add to view new subscribers to a social network.
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.

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 Payne commented
Great , pleased to see it. However, when I tried to DM a new follower, Hootsuite told me they were not following me!
Fantastic, thank you! Just what I needed.
This app is nearly useless to me without a dedicated "Followers" stream. TY.
Zach Bowers commented
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 Hayward commented
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!

I have another great idea. http://feedback.hootsuite.com/forums/40182-hootsuite-com-web-dashboard/suggestions/4373073-request-feature-uploading-images-by-url-
Vote if you agree!
Hootsuite rocks but like everyone else i think a dedicated stream for followers/new followers would be a great addition.
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!
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?
Yes, I would appreciate if you were able to work this into your fantastic application.
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 Stansfield commented
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 Romero commented
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.
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!
