What is a Hashtag?• The # symbol, called a hashtag, is used to mark keywords or topics in a Tweet. It was created organically by Twitter users as a way to categorize messages.• For example, if you search on #LOST (or #Lost or #lost, because its not case-sensitive), youll get a list of tweets related to the TV show. What you wont get are tweets that say "I lost my wallet yesterday" because "lost" isnt preceded by the hash tag.
Use of a Hashtag• People use the hashtag symbol # before relevant keywords in their Tweet to categorize those Tweets to show more easily in Twitter Search• Clicking on a hashtagged word in any message shows you all other Tweets in that category• Hashtags can occur anywhere in the Tweet• Hashtagged words that become very popular are often Trending Topics
How to create a Hashtag• When you type a tweet, for example – I liked the movie #CasinoRoyale• You just put the symbol # before the word you want to be highlighted, like in the above example #CasinoRoyale• And when someone searches related to #CasinoRoyale, they will find this tweet
