3 Tips:How To Use Hashtags On Twitter

The main reason to use blog hashtags on Twitter is to connect with other bloggers, widen your own audience and to find new, interesting blogs to follow. So before you go and spam your new blog post using a hashtag and fill your timeline retweeting other bloggers’ posts, here are three simple rules to make it a successful hashtag:

Do you want to be successful on twitter? Here are a few tips to help you use hashtags.

1. Read the post

How do you know you are not retweeting porn or a point of view you don’t agree with. Unless, of course, you want to tweet porn, I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with that. That moment was brought to you by Jerry.

2. See number 1

The whole point of the hashtag is to bring more traffic to blogs, not increase the number of tweets. A check of blog stats can verify post/twitter traffic.

3. Go back to 1

If you haven’t read the post, don’t bother retweeting it. Personally, I would rather you read my post and not retweet than just retweet because you feel you have an obligation to retweet me because I retweeted you.

Ok, so this turned out more like a rant than tips.

Thank you for reading!

    I usually do a re-tweet on a post I’ve already read and you know I see it in my feed then re-tweet without going to re-visit it. But yea.

    You’re definitely right about read the post first, i’d hate to RT something I didn’t agree with or worse.

    Absolutely! It’s a valid thought that has crossed my mind a number of times since I’ve been on here.
    I know that some folks do that blind retweet thing, and if it’s for a fellow blogger that you know and trust it is relatively safe.
    All the same I prefer to actually read the post to make sure that I like and agree with the content. If I don’t honestly think it is something that MY followers would be interested in, then I don’t retweet.
