Twitter Hashtags for Writers


The life of a writer doesn’t mean a lonely removed existence especially with the explosion of social media. My favorite site happens to be twitter. I love the speed. I love the immediacy of the responses. I love how easy you can start up or join a conversation.


One way to join a conversation is to use hashtags. Twitter hashtags are words preceded by the hash or pound symbol (#) i.e.: #ff #followfriday, #hashtag


Here are a few hashtags I like to use:

I go on most of these. There are also some specialty chats that I haven't participated in yet.

Hi Medeia, these chats are fun and I gain so much information too. Like learning about scriptchat during writechat. ;)
