Using hashtags on Twitter can help you to grow your business, build your green brand, raise awareness about your cause, build your reputation, and more.
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
