Looking for a list of Twitter hashtags? Here’s a list with 44 essential ones

One of the reasons I love Twitter is not only the ease of use, but the fact that it allows people to connect with each other in a relevant manner and not come across as spam. Using hashtags enabled me to find new people to connect with and have discussions. #bloggerswanted and #bloggerrequest are two of my favourite Twitter hashtags. However, as with all things in life, they started losing their relevance to me for several reasons (outside the scope of this post eheheh). Due to this, I decided to look for some new hashtags that would hopefully lead to some amazing connections.

List of 44 essential Twitter hashtags

It was in my search for popular hashtags that I came across this very handy list by AuthorMedia. I hope you find them useful too!

Authors need to know more about Twitter than how to get started.

Used correctly, Twitter hashtags are one of the best ways to connect with industry experts, readers, and other authors. Used incorrectly, it’s just another way to waste your precious time.

And you dear author, do not have time to waste.

If you’ve used the social network for any length of time, you’ve seen hashtags floating around at the tail end of the 140 character tweets. Here’s what you need to know to use them well.

Hashtags are used for:

  • Indexing emotions (#Vague #OhNoHeDidnt)
  • Identifying a Brand (#Ferrari)
  • Recommending a Product (#BestRead)
  • Connecting with like-minded people (#MemoirChat)
  • Finding Experts (#AskAgent)
Some Twitter hashtags are easy to understand. #WritingTip and #WriteTips are tags that provide, you guessed it, writing tips. Others, like #FF are a little harder to understand. #FF stands for #FollowFriday. On Friday, Twitter users tag other users for their friends to follow.

If you don’t know what a certain hashtag is, you can look it up on TagDef.  The chances are, it will be there. If you’re lost by all of this, one of our social media experts can help you out.

Here’s our list of essential Twitter Hashtags. You should use them and monitor them. If you are using TweetDeck, it is easy to monitor hashtags. Just create a new column to follow the hashtag. Monitor away and jump in to the conversation.
