With more than 110 million registered users, Twitter is without a doubt one of the most far reaching and effective social media tools on the web. A great number of people involved in sustainability, cleantech, conservation, green building, or some other area in the green space are pretty active on Twitter. So, if you are seeking to build your reputation, grow your business or create awareness about something you are doing in this arena, you need to get active on Twitter. One of the best tools you can use to succeed on Twitter are hashtags. Hashtags are great for adding additional context to your tweets, by prefixing specific keywords in or after the tweet with a hash symbol: #hashtag.

Hashtags categorize tweets, which makes them more findable. With an average of 55 million tweets a day, sifting through the noise can be close to impossible. Hashtags enable users to zero in on specific topics that they are interested in and find others with similar interests. It’s best to use the more popular hashtags to gain the most attention to your tweets. You can check to see which hashtags are used the most in your topics of interest by tracking them on Hashtags.org , which provides graphs and hour-by-hour information on hashtag usage. http://hashtags.org

See three examples of how to use hashtags in your tweets below:

There are a number of ways that hashtags can enhance your twitter experience. By making your tweets more findable, you will get more followers. For instance, I tweet a great deal on sustainability. When I do, I use the #sustainability hashtag. It has made it easier for people interested in sustainability to find us so we get a great number of followers who are interested in sustainability.

Hashtags are also good at helping users build a reputation on a specific topic, create or join conversations with others in your green areas of specialty, promote a new product, build awareness about a cause, get the word out about an event, and alert people about a new blog posts or current events,the list is growing.

Below is an alphebetized list of 150+ green hashtags that I compiled that will help you get connected to the global green Twitter community. Included are hashtags on the following topics, corporate social responsibility, smart grid, energy storage, green data centers,solar power, wind power, bio-energy, water conservation, climate change, sustainability, green building, social enterprise, conserveration, green living, cleantech, etc. While I have tried to be thorough, the Internet is evolving at a hyper speed.

    Hi Tracey. An excellent resource. Thank you very much for the work you did. I Tweet almost every evening about grant opportunity announcements with many in the #green category. Keeping track of potential #hashtag followers to a specific grant is daunting. I have had over time to deselect some as showing little value or use. What are the values, the significant activity of many of those listed here? I suppose that many are very high in value meeting their purpose and mission and showing use and others are duplicative with limited quality. Have you looked at trying to rate many of these, sorting some of the chaff from the wheat? For instance I have found that using #ngo is not very productive for me in reaching nongovernmental organizations. Based on the usage and content I have to include both #nonprofit and #nonprofits to reach a larger dedicated audience. I am not interested in the number of people who follow the information I present. I send the name of the grant, deadline, URL and the #hashtags. I am interested in reaching those who are working in the fields, leaders and workers both, who may benefit from the information. You have provided the sector with valuable information. @dgriesmann

    Hi Donald:

    Thanks for the compliment. I would imaging that keeping track of potential hashtag followers would be daunting. I’ve never tried to do that. I have identified people to follow as well ask find out about news I’m following with hashtags. I noticed that when I use them I get more followers and more traffic to our web site from Twitter.

    Each hashtag has its own uniquoe purpose and use. A whole book could be written on the topic. Some are more useful than others and then you need to factor in the relevance to the target audience. Each hashtags value can be determined by looking at their trends either with Twitter’s search feature, or using the hashtag.org trending tool that I mentioned above. It is true that many are redundant. I was trying to be comprehensive. It is up to users to determine which ones are used more often, and then use those. For instance. #sustainability and #susty are both used in tweets on sustainability, and one would think that #susty is used more frequently because it uses less characters, however, if you really want to reach people doing work in the sustainability sector you need to use the #sustainability hashtagh as that is the one that I see is used more frequently.

    I have not thought about trying to rate all the hashtags. Just compiling the list was considerably time consuming. Rating them all would be daunting. I simply do not have the time. I think the best way to use this list is to click on the hashtag links of the specific ones related to your interest area (s) and review the usage. If people you are targeting are using them every few minutes, than use that hashtag where appropriate. If you only see a specific hashtag being used every few hours or every few days, then it most likely is not an effective hashtag. For more info on hashtag usuage, check out http://twitip.com. It is a great Twitter usuage resource.

    Hi Tracey,

    Thanks for putting this list together. Regarding redundant hashtags, I’ve also seen #enviro and #greeneconomy.

    I’m really looking forward to the list of Green Twitter Chats.
