Nice Feature: Geolocation Icon in HootSuite

I noticed something new today in HootSuite, though it may have been there for a while now.  See that little icon I’ve highlighted in yellow below?

When I click on it, check this out:

Nice little feature, and I can keep better track of what my buddy Jeremy (@jthake) is up to.  Of course, you’ll only see the icon and the associated map view if the tweetee has turned on geolocation in their Twitter client.

All kidding aside, I recommend HootSuite wholeheartedly to manage your Twitter streams.  I’ve used other tools like TweetDeck and EchoFon over the last year or so, but HootSuite’s capabilities, along with the tight coupling of the browser-based and iPhone versions make it a winner for me.

And, no, I’m not being paid or otherwise rewarded by HootSuite in any way.  I just love their stuff!

Have a thought or opinion?
