Hash tag

A hash tag or hashtag is a way of organizing your Tweets for Twitter search engines. Users simply prefix a message with a community driven hash tag to enable others to discover relevant posts. One commonly used hash tag on twitter is #followfriday where users network by providing the names of their favorite people to follow on Twitter.
Hashtags are a way of tracking topics on Twitter and other social media platforms like Facebook and Pinterest. When you use hashtags, you can help people who are interested in your subject matter find your Tweets.

With Twitter in particular, it can be hard to find the posts you want to read and the people who discuss topics that interest you. There are so many Tweets being posted at any given time that wading through them is difficult! Hashtags help solve that problem by making it easy to search for Tweets with hashtags that are interesting to you.
