  1. Post page image to Twitter (just like Facebook & Google+)

    When you load an url to Hootsuite, it automatically retrieves the page image along with the title and description. These are all posted to Facebook and Google+.

    I'd like to see that it also posts the (selected) image to Twitter, just in the same way it posts a picture when you manually add an image.

          Hi, in the Analytics > "URL Click Stats - Ow.ly" report it would great if when you enter a url, you could hit the <Enter> keyboard button to retrieve the data. Currently you have to hit the <Apply> on-screen button with the mouse. It's extremely useful when you have a bunch of URLs to check ...

          • Add a feature to allow people to upload in bulk many twitter accounts.

            We have dozens of people in our company and our many clients that we want to hook up our Twitter Accounts into one account. We have to do this manually as is, however it would be cool if you could take a csv file or something and upload in bulk a ton.

            • Allow users to fit more columns on the screen

              I know about the slider control to define the number of columns you want to see, so please, don't post "you can adjust the size, just follow this link". The current size adjustment is not good enough. I want to squeeze more columns into my screen. One easy way to do this would be to have an option to show/hide avatars. Those avatars take up a lot of space, and I could fit at least one more column on the screen if I could hide them. Another option would be to allow me to control the font size. Or a…

              • Allow to choose thumbnail image when hooting to G+ pages (it worked before!)

                Allow to choose from different thumbnail images when hooting to G+ pages. This feature worked before but has stopped. You can still do the same thing when posting directly in G+ or via a Sharethis button. It is really boring if you cannot post with a nice image to G+ pages!

                  Hi there! Thanks for reaching out to us!

                  To confirm, due to a restriction in the G+ API, thumbnails currently cannot selected when posting to G+ from HootSuite.

                  We hope to re-examine this functionality again in the future should the restriction be removed.

                  Thank you,
                  Travis | Customer Support – Technical Lead | @HootSuite_Help

                    Hi there! Can you clarify what you would like to do?

                  • I want to be able to share the Favorites stream for an account with team members

                    We'd like to be able to assign each other tweets to proactively respond to others' tweets that don't necessarily mention us or direct message us. We figured being able to favorite those tweets and then assign them would work, but you can't share the Favorites stream.

                    • Add the ability to create subfolders to help people and marketing Co's track stats of multiple accts

                      Allow users to create main folders and sub-folders so we can track stats for one account or all the accounts together. For instance, if I wanted to create a Tactical Marketing Labs main folder and have our 4 Twitter accounts, Facebook page, and LinkedIn page listed as sub-folders I could track stats for TML collectively or for each social networking account separately.

                      • do not automatically generate new ow.ly urls for scheduled tweets

                        I sometimes schedule another post for a tweet. Problem is: even if that tweet includes a ow.ly URL, Hootsuite automatically generates a new one for the scheduled one. It makes it harder to track statistics. So far, the only way I found is to edit the scheduled tweet and paste the original ow.ly URL in place of the new one. Not so convenient... ;)
                        Thanks for your help

                        • Share Link to facebook page using "link" API of facbeook. This is different from posting a message.

                          For example in php,
                          $attachment = array(
                          'access_token' => $access_token,
                          'link' => 'http://www.hootsuite.com';
                          $facebook->api("/$page_id/links","post",$attachment);

                          This feature allows the post showing the correct type of image (video/article/website). And the "share" button would be "ajax" automatically. Thanks in advance!

                              • Add Radio/Check boxes for following & LISTS

                                I manage several accounts and sometimes there is list overlap. It's very redundant to add each list individually and it seems like radio buttons or check boxes would be a helpful solution – especially since the list order shuffles everytime.

                                  Interesting idea! A quick way to add users to multiple lists would be great. We’ll look at including this feature in the future.
