Taking Twitter to the Next Level:
Tweetdeck vs. Hootsuite
By John Enfield
In 2008, Tweetdeck and Hootsuite launched to help us get a better handle on our Twitter accounts. Both have much in common. Both of them can be used online with no downloads. They let you see your Twitter’s timeline, interactions and direct messages all at the same time which is the chief reason to have one of these programs in the first place. In Twitter, you have to do a lot of fiddling with the settings and check the email you linked with it to see all of these things. Both programs let you do the same things in Twitter such as replying, favoriting, retweeting, direct messaging and sending to an email. Both also let you schedule a tweet so that it appears on a future time and date. Very handy, especially if you do most of your tweeting once a day, but don’t want to flood your followers with a whole bunch of tweets at once.
There are two main aspects of each that set them apart: check out the full post here.
