After much discussion about Hootsuite’s Promoted Tweets, a few of our readers discovered users of the free Hootsuite version can now opt out of promoted tweets. Makes sense, given the SPAM act requirements for other, possibly-unwanted, communication.
How to get rid of those annoying Hootsuite ads:
- Click on the Owl icon at the top left corner of your dashboard (just under your post field)
- Roll over Settings > click Preferences
- Uncheck Show Promote Tweets
Done! You shouldn’t be seeing any more unwanted ads. At least for now.
Now all that’s left if for hootsuite to correct their documentations online and to let free version users know they too can opt out of seeing those promoted tweets. Clean. Simple. Fair.
