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!

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.
Jan 7th at 1:19 pm
Very, Very excited about this!
Jan 7th at 1:26 pm
We’ve also just integrated WordPress here at Sendible.com! The Twitter api made it really easy. Good work guys!
Jan 7th at 3:07 pm
Huh. This may help push me into microblogging. Now I just need to work on getting less verbose. (Curse you, character limits!)
Jan 7th at 3:10 pm
I love HootSuite… now I love it even more!
Jan 7th at 4:24 pm
This is great news!
Jan 7th at 5:22 pm
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.
Jan 7th at 10:25 pm
Super cool! This is going to be a popular feature, for sure. Thanks!

Jan 8th at 1:52 am
the more hits…the better…..
Jan 8th at 2:29 am
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.
Jan 8th at 5:19 am
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.. great!!
Jan 9th at 5:30 am
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!!!

Jan 11th at 11:26 am
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$.
Jan 11th at 12:00 pm
I love wordpress…Impressive
Jan 11th at 8:28 pm
I have never used it, but it sounds awesome.
Jan 12th at 12:16 am
