1. Don’t overuse hashtags.
If you’re tweeting, and you want as many people as possible to see your tweet, it can be tempting to add on a huge list of hashtags, but it’s more annoying than helpful. You end up sounding a bit like this:
Pick a few of the most important hashtags. For example, when posting a link to this article on Twitter I might use #socialmedia and #socialmediatips.
2. Use relevant hashtags.
Make sure the hashtags you use are relevant to the content of your tweets. For example:
Do- For a tweet about social media etiquette use hashtags like #socialmedia #Facebook #Twitter
Don’t- For a tweet about social media etiquette don’t use hashtags like #GameofThrones or something completely unrelated to your topic. It might get some people to view your tweet, but it does nothing to elevate the quality of your content.
