From what I can remember, Hootsuite agreed to a deal with ICE (US Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency) which would result in their social monitoring functionality being used for law enforcement purposes. Initially Hootsuite denied it. Some of their employees went public. And some left as a result. If memory serves, the employee that leaked the information initially was fired. After the backlash, they walked away from the deal. It was a few years ago now."
Hi Lisa, I don’t use them together but Surfer can connect to Semrush and pull backlink data into their GrowFlow tool which is a great idea. Semrush is a great tool. I’ve still got a legacy Ahrefs plan but as soon as I’m forced to their new pricing, I’ll be moving to Semrush. The platform has an incredible number of features. Which do you use the most? "
Gutenberg and plugins like GeneratePress are a great solution to keep things simple. They are far better than they once were. But they are still quite limiting. That’s where page builders come in - they are perfect for those that want to remove creative limitations inherent in Gutenberg & accompanying blocks plugins."
Nope. Given how Twitter is being run at the moment, I wouldn’t want to give them any money. To now charge for access to their API, something Meta offers for free, has put me off even more. Most social media tools now have to pay $42,000/month (at least!!) to offer Twitter related features (scheduling/analytics, etc). They cut some tools off without warning and even ignored some of the ones that wanted to pay. Some tools are going to pay. Others are implementing a work around where users enter a personal API key. The free tier is enough for individuals but not for the tools themselves."
