A Lesson in Twitter Hashtags

What are #hashtags and how do you use them in Twitter?

Hashtags begin with the # symbol and contain a tag word or phrase without having spacing between the words. They are typically added at the end of the tweet.  Twubs, a website for Twitter groups focused around content aggregated from #hashtags, explains hashtags as, “a user-created standard for identifying tweets belonging to a topic.” I was able to register  #anthonyfrando using Twubs.

Using hashtags in your tweets can help increase the likelihood of others seeing your tweet, which may help to promote your item and increase your Twitter followers.
