Use HootSuite’s “Send to Email” button for a handy way to bring them into the conversation. This “Send to Email” button will automatically paste the selected Tweet into the body of your email, plus you can also add notes before sending.

Here’s How:

1) Hover over a status update in one of your streams and click on the drop down menu.
