What is a hashtag?
A word or phrase preceded by a “#.”
How do hashtags work?
Twitter can be a busy place with lots of tweets–and thus lots of “noise.”
A #hashtag is a way to aggregate tweets that are appended with a hashtag. Picture it like a magnet that attracts all messages categorized by that topical word or phrase.
Who can use hashtags?
Anyone. When you tweet and want your message to be part of a larger conversation beyond your followers, add a relevant hashtag from the list below to the end of your message, and you’ll automatically reach anyone who is monitoring the same hashtag. Cool, yes?
