How to Bulk Upload your Tweets & Facebook Updates | Hootsuite Bulk Upload on a Mac


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.

  • Fantastic tutorial as I am having a heck of a time getting this to work. I realized I wasn’t doing a few things that you described, but after following your instructions to a “T” im still getting “Found 1 problems with the upload, no messages will be scheduled until they are resolved:” And then it doesn’t even tell me what the problem is. Yippie. I’ll keep trying.
