Tale of a HootSuite Convert

Jai Cole, vice-president of Plum Communications Inc wrote Hootsuite Reigns! A Convert’s Tale:

Then, miraculously, I found Hootsuite, an application that manages multiple Twitter accounts, including LinkedIn and Facebook accounts. I set up my account with the wise Owl and now all I have to do is key-in my 140-character message, check off the accounts it should go to and off they fly. Even better, Hootsuite has a built-in app that shrinks your long URL into a shortened version, so you don’t use all your 140 characters and you can tweet immediately or later.

Why make life more complicated? You can post to multiple accounts within the Hootsuite dashboard. We’re glad that you are a convert!
