Twitter Tips and Jargon for the uninitiated

“#hashtags”  [pronounced “hashtags” or called “hashtagging”]

Hashtags are a twitter convention which lets you add a tag to your tweet. A tag is a keyword, term, subject or category relevant to your content which makes it easier to be found by someone searching for particular types of content.  As a tweet’s author, you decide whether to tag and how you want to tag your tweet.

To hashtag, you simply put a “#” symbol at the beginning of your tag word.  If you do this, then another user searching in twitter under that hashtagged topic will more readily find your tweet. Hashtags are put within the body of the tweet or at the end of the tweet (more like a metadata tag) depending on your tweeting style.
