Links to Writing & Marketing Blog Posts

Twitter hashtags (#) are used to categorize tweets according to subject matter. If you attach relevant hashtags to them, your tweets are more readily found by others interested in your subject matter. This gives you a better chance to increase your followers and it makes it easier to interact with other “tweeps.”

I’ve compiled a list of hashtags that pertain to writers, authors, and self-publishers. But what if you want to create your own? There are no specific rules in place for doing so, so here are some tips.

Make it short. Since each Tweet is limited to 140 characters, your hashtag should take up as little of that as possible. Try to keep your hashtag to 10 characters or less.
