This afternoon as part of a panel titled License to Tweet: Applications and Services To Die For at 140 | The Twitter Conference, Ryan Holmes of Vancouver’s HootSuite revealed that his social media dashboard is adding Foursquare and MySpace to their offering.

Mashable’s Ben Parr was in attendence and thanks to him it didn’t take long for the news to hit his site and completely take over the in-conference Twitter stream (as pointed out by Chris Pirillo from the back of the room).

HootSuite’s release comes just in time for South by Southwest. The press release announcing the Foursquare/MySpace integration was scheduled for tomorrow morning but it’s out there now.

Congrats to Holmes, Community Manager Dave Olson and the Owl on their participation in the conference. During the aforementioned panel which covered dozens of tools and services, HootSuite was definitely the most advanced Twitter client covered. And the popularity of this leaked announcement proves that the audience is interested in much more than just Twitter.
