Great guest post by Gwynne - we've had the pleasure of having her post a bit in Connected in the past. I often see misused hashtags on Twitter and definitely the hashtag explosion at times. When I use hashtags, my focus is to get my post on a subject matter list. When doing any post about the law I will often use #law, the same for #socialmedia, and any other subject matter modifier like #constructionlaw or #litigation. As for 3rd party clients to monitor Twitter, I'm a Tweet Deck man (works great for me). How do others in Connected manage hashtags? Do you use a 3rd party client to monitor Twitter, and if so, which one?
I love Tweetdeck - I can use any spare moments whilst waiting for someone, to catch up on twitter!
Mike, can you recommend a good article on the use of hashtags? I'm not entirely clear about how and when to use them.
