​I know it's proprietary (and probably already has been discussed; I
haven't been able to follow Ku too much recently because of other real
world commitments), but Hootsuite can post simultaneously to Twitter,
Facebook Pages, and G+. I believe it can take RSS feeds automatically as
well. One area it really shines is reporting. Another great tool is the
ability to schedule posts automatically for maximum impact, based on some
unknown fuzzy logic. ​

The "wheejum" dynamic is cool also!
