integrate Buffer within web apps like Hootsuite
Or use the browser extensions to somehow work with Hootsuite.
So as an example, if I am looking at my stream in Hootsuite, and I want to retweet someone's tweet, I want to add that to buffer from within Hootsuite.

I'm working on a few apps for hootsuite integration (instagram, evernote, orkut). I'm very interested in the idea and like to make the integration. Do you have a chance to have a discussion about it?
I would love this for tweetdeck - I hate copying and pasting!

agree with the comments below...buffer is critical to my morning routine, but I have to go through a crazy step integrating hootsuite w/ buffer. I wind up clicking RT button in Hootsuite, copying tweet to a word doc, and repeating for all desired posts. Then I integrate the word doc entries with other things I want to buffer (original tweets, shares from Google reader, etc). Could save me a lot of kludge-work.

Isn't hootsuite the most used client by now? If your chrome plugin could hack a buffer button next to their "send" button, that would be perfect!
I came across a program that does just this - it has all the features of hootsuite and then some, including an integrated app very similar to buffer. I think it was called argyle. Unfortunately, it was also 300 dollars a month. I wish there was something in between hootsuite/buffer and argyle. Anyone know of anything?

I would *love* this ability. Buffer is a brilliant concept. But the fact remains that using social media you still need apps to monitor and engage, not just tweet/publish. I just experienced exactly what Gemma described .. in HootSuite, want to do a tweet, then think, now's not the time ... want to schedule it, then, the thought hits, "Gee, I wish I could just add this to my Buffer." If your API would allow apps like HootSuite, TweetDeck, MarketMeSuite, Sprout Social etc. to integrate with Buffer, I could see that many people would gravitate to Buffer because often people use more than one social media client, because some are better at monitoring and engagement, whereas others are stronger on the analytical side ... but to be able to add to one's Buffer from multiple social media apps ... well, you'd have me hooked as a Buffer subscriber for life.
