Re: What You Need to Know About Twitter #Hashtags

Well said! # Hashtags in twitter is usually being use to categorize Tweets by keyword and help to show more easily in Twitter Search. It can be placed anywhere in the Tweet – at the beginning, middle, or end. On Tweeting with a hashtag on a public account, anyone who does a search for that hashtag may find your Tweet.

Hashtags mark keywords or topics in Tweets. 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.

Hashtag #spam

 

How to Recognize a Spammer

 

  1. They repeat information that's already been posted without adding anything original.
  2. They often (but not always) have bad grammar and broken English.
  3. They are often associated with schemes like payday loans or online pharmaceuticals.
  4. They target forums such as this one (otherwise known as forum spam).

With they're IP addresses and e-mail addresses identified, they can be reported to websites like Stop Forum Spam. The more proactive forum administrator's are, the less they are a nuisance to your valuable community.

 

How's that for a subtle hint?  :smileyhappy:

I don't really believe that #hashtags is only for spams. Categorisation, labelling and keywording are the main purpose of #hastags. When you use #hashtags, you don't have to search for relevant items since when you have hashtags, you can just easily pick relevant information.
