Twitter tips: Hashtags

Here are five top tips on how to use hashtags:

  • Remember if you're using a hashtag from a public account, anyone who does a search for the hashtag will find your tweet. So, make sure the hashtag is appropriate, professional and relevant.
  • Don't use too many hashtags as that's considered as spam. Twitter's Best Practice recommends using a maximum of two hashtags.
  • Hashtags can appear anywhere in your tweet, not just at the end of your tweet.
  • Find interesting tweets on a topic and profiles to follow by searching for a hashtag topic in the search field.
  • Create your own hashtag by simply putting the hashtag symbol # in front of your topic. When creating a hashtag remember to see if it's already being used first as part of someone's marketing campaign, competition etc.
