It’s been a week since HootSuite launched. Since then, more than 1000 accounts have been created, and more than 1500 followers have joined us on Twitter. We’ve had a great review from Mashable (which you can Digg here), as well as from Killerstartups and some other wonderful blogs.
One of the best things about this week has been communicating with all our new users. We’re really excited to see that a whole host of folks have begun to post their tweets using HootSuite. Here’s a list of some of our new friends. It ranges from big names to no names, from Vancouver to Germany.
