  1. Thanks for sharing the HootSuite story Jeremiah.

    Working with Destin is a treat and in a short period of time, we’ve build the HootSuite Community Diplomat program into a worldwide network of super-owls. Additionally, she is a key contributor to the HootUps around the world (over 100 this year alone) and many community programs for Enterprise users, students, other CMs, and many other segments in between.

    Learn more about our efforts @HootClub.

  2. Thanks for this shout-out Jeremiah… I was wrapped up in the exuberance of JiveWorld when it came out and just now realized I didn’t thank you.
