So I've signed up. What do I think after ten minutes' use?
- It looks different. Wierdly, this really phases me. I'm used to my own Twitter design, and I'm not a great fan of the three available HootSuite themes.
- It's not possible for me to tweet via there for cpd23, because another member of the team has already added that account to their HootSuite account, and would have to have a paid account and add me as a 'team member' to make it possible. Rats!
- It's rather slow on my antiquated old PC, but then most things are.

Of the other things mentioned in this Extra Thing, I'm pleased to say that I already use bit.ly (increasingly redundant as Twitter now automatically shortens links, but still handy for looking at stats. Add a plus sign ('+') to the end of a link, and see how many people have clicked, and when. If you sign up for an account you can also access all the links you've previously shortened and get browser widgets, etc.), twitterfeed autotweets my blog posts, and I've consulted Twapperkeeper and Archivist too in the past.
