By prefacing aword or acronym with the pound symbol (#), you create a link within your tweet that connects your message toexisting discussions and is easily searchable by other users. Clicking on a hashtag will lead you to a search,featuring tweets containing the same hashtag, thereby creating a more targeted user experience. Keep in mindthat punctuation and spaces are not recognized when typing a hashtag, and a single word or acronym is mosteffective. For example, hashtags for following career advice are tagged as "#careeradvice".Creating a hashtag from a sentence is largely ineffective as it is not likely to gain much traction.
