WordPress.com: Now on HootSuite

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!

    A wonderful application.

  14. Arun Shanbhag

    Lots of potential here.
    Signed up to hootsuite and linked to my WordPress.com account; Since I manage several WP a/c how do I tell hoot-suite which blog I want to post to? Hoot-suite says do something with the twitter api! What? Where is it? and How?


    • Paul Kim

      You can set the blog you post to on your WordPress.com profile page. There’s a Twitter API section and a menu to pick the blog for your updates.

  15. axewielderx

    If this keeps up I might just have to get a Ipod touch.:)

  21. Emma

    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.

  22. allblognews

    Very, Very excited about this!

  23. sendible

    We’ve also just integrated WordPress here at Sendible.com! The Twitter api made it really easy. Good work guys!

  24. alejna

    Huh. This may help push me into microblogging. Now I just need to work on getting less verbose. (Curse you, character limits!)

    • Paul Kim

      No character limit when posting from HootSuite to WordPress.com so you can write to your heart’s content. :)

  25. Brian

    I love HootSuite… now I love it even more!

    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.

  36. jamesb101

    the more hits…the better…..

  37. JaredAdventure93

    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.

  38. Paul Kim

    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.

  39. codeandtag

    Good to increase power of WordPress!


  40. cvs268

    Oooh-la-la.. WORDPRESS ROCKS !!

    No wonder its on #1 SPOT for 2 consecutive years!!

  41. Yasir Imran

    Is this application support nokia phones?

    • Paul Kim

      HootSuite.com is a web application, accessible by any browser. They’ve also released an iPhone app but I don’t believe there’s a Nokia-phone specific app.

  42. Tarbiyatul banin

    i shall try this

  43. livinginmyfantasy

    Oh my. It is way too cool!

    i love it.. great!! :D

  49. utellit

    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!!!

  63. Learn cPanel Videos Training

    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!

  64. libre fan

    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$.

  65. Gaurav Agarwal

    I love wordpress…Impressive

  66. susiemauney

    I have never used it, but it sounds awesome.
