I wanted to create an editorial calendar for our updates on Twitter. Not only to make sure that I was focused on a topic for the month but also to make sure that regardless of my schedule I was staying active on Twitter. So, I created a spreadsheet with all my updates and decided to go over to Hootsuite and bulk upload them. The instructions simply said to format your date, enter your update, a link if you were linking to something, save as a .csv and then use the bulk upload scheduler. Seems simple enough, right? Wrong.
After struggling with Hootsuite trying to upload my Twitter updates in bulk I read through some help forums that stated that if you save your excel spreadsheet as a .csv on a mac it needs to be reformatted to UTF-8 doc before Hootsuite will upload it correctly. So, below are my instructions for those who have been having difficulties on how to bulk upload your updates to Hootsuite using a Mac.
