Twitter logoSometimes Twitter seems like a totally foreign language, even to those of us who use it daily and are fairly well initiated!

So you are not alone, if you have looked at a Twitter hashtag # and wondered what on earth does that mean.

For those of you who are scratching your head as to what a hashtag is. A Twitter hashtag is the way on Twitter to flag a theme, discussion or content that you want other people to be aware of, group the conversation or help them spread the word to people who are interested in the same topic. You can use them to find topics or content that you are interested in too.

So you’ve found a Twitter hashtag you don’t understand…

Well last week I discovered this very handy website called #TagDef which helps you to find out what any Twitter hashtag means and if you create your own Twitter hashtags, you can add it to the list in seconds, to ensure everyone else knows what you are on about and start to help your spread your marketing word!

A great little time saver so I thought you ought to know about it.
