Last month we introduced new ways to post and keep up to date with WordPress.com blogs through the Twitter API. One of the coolest parts about this is you can make use of a growing number of microblogging apps to publish to your WordPress.com blog.
Today our friends at HootSuite announced their support of WordPress.com. HootSuite is an easy to use microblogging tool that lets you post updates to many different social networks. WordPress.com is the first blogging platform they’re officially supporting.
You can schedule and cross-post content to multiple WordPress.com blogs (posting to self-hosted WordPress blogs isn’t available yet). You can also set up a Home Feed for blogs you’re following, and reblog posts that you like. Check out the tutorial video HootSuite’s put together to see how easy it is to get going.
For even more apps, including iPhone, BlackBerry, and Firefox flavors, we created an apps for WordPress.com directory that we’ll keep updated with new ways to get your blog on. Enjoy!

If this keeps up I might just have to get a Ipod touch.:)
cool!! this makes wordpress more lovable!
very good, delighted
Way cool! Just one more reason to <3 WordPress.com. :)
holy tomato, birdman! I’ve been meaning to check out hoot suite, now I have a bigger incentive! thanks, WP!
Excellent ! thank you for your hard work and congrats
Am very impressed with this application so far – and I only joined ten minutes ago – am going to have a lot of fun with this.
Very, Very excited about this!
We’ve also just integrated WordPress here at Sendible.com! The Twitter api made it really easy. Good work guys!
Huh. This may help push me into microblogging. Now I just need to work on getting less verbose. (Curse you, character limits!)
I love HootSuite… now I love it even more!
This is great news!
Bravo pour votre travail !
It really should say “WordPress.com” instead of “WordPress” (four instances). Self-hosted (WordPress.org) users are going to get confused and enter their local user/password.
Super cool! This is going to be a popular feature, for sure. Thanks!
Good Looking Out Paul – I was thinking about switching to Hootsuite – this made my choice much easier.
YAAAAAY *screams and runs around the room* YAAAAAAaaaAAAAaaaaaaAAAy!! YeeeeAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!! *shrieks*
the more hits…the better…..
That’s really awesome! I have one question though. How do you get to that main screen to the point where you click on settings…… there’s a different home page than that. I don’t understand that part.
The Settings button is near the bottom of the home screen in HootSuite. Click on “Settings” then the “Social Networks” tab to add your WordPress.com blog.
Good to increase power of WordPress!
Oooh-la-la.. WORDPRESS ROCKS !!
No wonder its on #1 SPOT for 2 consecutive years!!
Is this application support nokia phones?
i shall try this
Oh my. It is way too cool!
word press is my wife. and twitter is my sun.
Keep increasing the Power of WordPress!
We’ll see….(thinking) :)
i love it.. great!! :D
I love it and I am using it. I am sure they will tweak some more of it to allow us to place tags and the categories that we want our blog posts to be filed under. For the most part I really like it. I just have to sign in to put the tags and categories in on the blog posts. HootSuite is doing so many new things they have rolled out this past week you have to go over there are really check it out. Go HootWord!!!
i love HootSuite, i love WordPress 2 :mrgreen:
I’m confused, but it sure is a nice thing to try and figure out when you have to work on the weekend!
Thats awesome ..
thats amazing fantastic work guys…..you know what bums me out no one checked out my blog today not even 1 person :(
Excellent ! thank you for your hard work and congrats
I love wordpress 2

Good news – and another reason to check out HootSuite, too!
Wow…this is seriously impressive
Ok, I will try this, thanks !
I haven’t tried it yet. I may try it one day if I have time for it.
thanx a bunch
Nice all this new stuff is making me feel adventurous and silly, silly I don’t know why. Anyway I am setting this right now as we speak. Thanks!
I’m rather sad that WP is free software (free as freedom) and WP.com doesn’t do enough for open platforms, open protocols and open formats.
Identi.ca, ODF formats should be your priority, these are more fun than Twitter and M$.
I love wordpress…Impressive
I have never used it, but it sounds awesome.
Upwards and onwards and thanks…cool!
thanks! pk speaker
Gee Whiz! Now THAT’S good feng shui! Thanks, WP!

Makes “blogging” even easier for us!
That’s great news! Keep on expanding :)
This Gramma’s going to try this new-fangled app, it looks pretty good to me. You young people are so amazing, I just love it!
Peace, Gramma Willi
What’s the best way to automatically have new posts from a blog posted to a Facebook account?
I think I’m going to try this out.
When are you going to be on Tweetdeck?
