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!

    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?

      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.

    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.

    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.

    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’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$.
