Technology Hashtags: Webopedia’S Twitter Guide To Technology Topics

This Webopedia.com guide to Twitter hashtags for technology topics provides descriptions of the most popular tech-related hashtags used in Twitter today.

What is a Twitter Hashtag?

On Twitter, a hashtag is a way for users to organize tweets for Twitter search engines. Using hashtags helps others to discover your tweets when searching Twitter. The hashtag is the pound symbol (#), followed by the keyword or phrase that describes the main topic of the message (e.g. #technology). You can think of a hashtag as shorthand to summarize your messages. When users search Twitter using a hashtag query, all tweets containing the hashtag will be shown in the search results.

How do I Choose a Hashtag and How Many Can I Use?

Simply add the pound sign (#) to the main word that describes the focus of your tweet. For example, if you are tweeting about your Apple iPad, you might include #iPad or #iOS to your Twitter message.

Quick Tip: Hashtags are not case-sensitive, but don’t use spaces. For example #CloudComputing not #Cloud Computing.

The point of using hashtags is to categorize your messages, so using more than one hashtag is OK just don’t overdo it! For example, if you found a great news article about the state of CRM today, it is perfectly acceptable to include both the #CRM and #News hashtags.
