You might know about what hashtags do in Twitter. If you don’t, I’II give you the low-down. Basically using hashtags or (any word with the prefix #) groups these tweets together so potentially Twitter users can find each other when searching for an interest. If users search #art they will get everyone that has created tweets with #art in their message. Although it doesn’t have to be an interest it can be anything. An event, news or a location for example.
It is a very organic process, so you can create new hashtags such as #dogtraining and Twitter users might start using it if they want to group all these tweets together.
Hashtags are basically a way of organising the information on Twitter developed by Twitter users.
Hashtags are useful in your Twitter bio as when clicked it takes you straight to any hashtags with that name. This could be a collection of your own relevant tweets within a topic or other people’s depending on who uses the hashtag and whether it is newly created. If it is completely new it will go to your own tweets, if it is a common hashtag such as #art probably other people’s tweets. The problem with hashtags is it’s easy to overdo it. And can make your Twitter bio look messy if you include more than 3 or 4. I mean just look at: #art #design #socialmedia #internetmarketing. It screams ‘over the top’.
Promote another Twitter account
If you’re feeling generous you can always promote another Twitter account and put their whole Twitter name in your Twitter bio with the @prefix similar to a mention. For promotional purposes it is very valuable or if you want to promote your own secondary Twitter account and share followers. You can also put in other URLs in the Twitter bio if you have multiple websites.
