50 Twitter Hashtags For Writers

50 #Awesome #Writing #Hashtags for Writers

Using Hashtags (#) is a great way to maximise your use of twitter. Hashtags are used to: group posts on similar topics, track trends and topical news, search for specific information or topics, connect you with readers and fellow writers, and, most importantly, get your tweets noticed amongst the tweet stream!  (Oh, and don’t forget to listen to our podcast Episode #37: Intro To Twitter)

Before you go #hashtagcrazy, there are some rules you should follow:

· Don’t use more than three hashtags per tweet
· Don’t #hashtag #several #words #in #a #row in the #body #of #your #tweet—see how #annoying it is?
· Use the appropriate hashtags for your tweets
· Be natural and don’t spam—that’s the quickest way to lose followers

There are a tonne of hashtags out there for the writing community and Twitter is constantly evolving. A few minutes of googling will give you lots of hashtag lists, but in the meantime, here are my Top Fifty (or so) to get you started:
