When I started using Twitter, I had no idea what I was doing.  Hashtags, retweets, mentions, DM’s; all that Twitter-speak was Greek to me. For the Twitter newbie, the whole process can be a little overwhelming. The volume of tweets doesn’t make the process easy, either. According to statistics, Twitter averages 500 million tweets a day, or 5,700 tweets per second. That’s a lot of twitting tweets. With all those tweets floating around out there, it is difficult to find the ones you are really interested in.

That is where hashtags come in.

Anyone with a teenager, or a TV, has probably heard of hashtags. They show up everywhere these days. It may just sound like an annoying catchphrase, but it is actually an efficient way to categorize ideas and information. In order for your intended audience to find your tweets, and for you to find theirs, hashtags are a necessary evil.

Over time, I have collected a list of hashtags that are writing related to help me find the tweets I am interested in. They are listed below. I have included a few others that are recommended for writers, but I have not tried all of them yet.
