If you’re new to Twitter, or even if you’ve been using it for years, you may wonder what all those words preceded by the # sign are. They’re hashtags. And you should consider using them if you want to potentially get more out of your experience. Problem is, many people don’t use hashtags correctly. Here’s a primer on hashtags, plus some recommendations for using them effectively for your business. What are Hashtags?
A hashtag is simply a relevant word or series of characters preceded by the # symbol. Hashtags help categorize messages and can make it easier for other Twitter users to search for tweets. When you search for or click on a hashtag you’ll see all other tweets that use the same hashtag. Only others who are interested in the same topic thread will likely be using the same hashtag. For example, if you search for #Apple, you’re less likely to see tweets that include references to the fruit and more likely to see information about the technology company. Here’s how you can use hashtags so your tweets can reach a larger audience and attract more followers.
