New Feature! Update Multiple Profiles at Once

By Jeff • 5 years ago • 21 Comments

Ever wanted to post a status update to multiple Twitter profiles simultaneously?

Never fear, HootSuite users! With our new tweet box, you can do just that.

When you log in, you’ll see our nifty new tool, right at the top of the page:

 

See those profile thumbnails on the right? Select one, two, or all of them — your tweets can now be sent from multiple Twitter profiles at once!

The new tweet box also makes it super easy to send direct messages. Just create a new tweet that starts with ‘d username’ and it’ll be sent as a DM.

Multiple Account Update

Want to schedule a tweet for later? No prob. Click the “Send Later” link to choose when your update will be posted to Twitter.

We’ve also improved the ways ow.ly links get added to your tweets. If you shrink a link, we’ll generate an ow.ly link for you and place it right into the body of your tweet text. You can even add multiple ow.ly links to a single tweet.

Have an ow.ly link you want to send out from multiple Twitter profiles? No problem. When you send your tweet, we’ll generate a unique ow.ly link for each of your Twitter profiles, so you can track clickthrough rates from each Twitter profile individually.

Are you a stats hound? If you add multiple ow.ly links to a tweet, you can view each ow.ly link’s stats individually on the Sent tab. Just click the “Stats” button on the tweet and you’ll see all the juicy details.

If the new tweet box is eating up too much of your screen real estate, you can minimize it at any time. Just click the arrow at the bottom of the box and it’ll roll up into the top of the page.

How’s that for tidy?

Enjoy the new tweet box. We hope it makes your Twitter life easier.

@Riga Rooster Twitter is aware of our application, and they'll let us know if they think if violates their ToS.

I love this so far! Only thing I miss, as a recent convert from tr.im, is the ability to customize the shortened URLs. That way I can tell at a glance if people have RT'd my shortened URL or one they created themselves.

Can you track ow.ly links in Google Analytics?

Are they redirects or no?

Actually the same question as @LaLunaLoveGood => answer => Actually, you must start posting and following people and some of them will follow you back. Also others may follow you if they find your posts interesting.

I do not understand your answer. In twitter I already follow a lot of people and some are also follwing me. In hootsuite I cannot find those persons. (Do I miss something?)

It was my intention to replace the standard twitter-url with the hootsuite-url in my browser startup screen.

Later added: Strange, I now do have all the old data. Is there a time delay between signing up and synchrising with Twitter?

More later: I got it: The standaard url starts with http://hootsuite.com/dashboard. => Okay, now to find out with buttons to press to get all the details

Much more later: solved it: I have to click on my avitar :-(

I normally do not hit on my head :-) Suggestion to change the startscreen to http://hootsuite.com/twitter/xxxxx?action=feeds&feedType=home

This great but the only thing I would like to see added is just who exactly is clicking on to the URL's. This would be a great feature I would like to see implemented if possible.

If I share a hootsuite account with someone, but also have a personal account- can I get my mobile tweets from my personal account to show up on our shared one!? Any advice is greatly appreciated! Thx!

It may very well be an excellent feature and it works.

BUT and its a BIG BUT .... multiple TWEETs violates Twitter's Terms Of Service.

I sent one tweet to six of my Twitter accounts and Twitter SUSPENDED all of my twitter accounts last week.

Only one multiple message - suspended with no warning.

I am through wasting time with TWITTER!

I can't tell you what a convenience this is for me. I manage about six separate Twitter profiles--most of them for work but one for personal purposes--and this consolidates everything into one tidy, pretty package.

Thanks!

Adding multiple ow.ly links to tweets is a dream come true. Being able to track stats of multiple ow.ly links in one tweet is a bonus. Thank you.

@LaLunaLoveGood Actually, you must start posting and following people and some of them will follow you back. Also others may follow you if they find your posts interesting. :)

These updates freakin' rock. Thank you Hootsuite. Now if only Hootsuite and TweetDeck were to get together and have digital offspring . . . my twitter experience would be heaven.
