Hashtags

Don’t know about hashtags? #noworries 

Hashtags are words or phrases prefixed with a hash symbol (#) that appear as part of a Twitter, Facebook or Instagram post. Here are a few examples:

  • Late for class? Pirate Bikes to the rescue! #BeSouthwestern
  • Just got the keys to my new room in Kurth Hall. Excited about moving in!#AhoyPirates
  • #BrownSym2014 sounds interesting! Looking forward to the speakers and events.
  • Can’t wait for my 10th Reunion party tonight! #SUHRW #TheASUA

You can search for any hashtag (don’t forget the # sign!) and this tagged word will appear in the search engine results. Hashtags also show up in a number of trending topics websites, including Twitter’s own front page. Keep your hashtags as short as possible since they are included in Twitter’s 140-character word count.
