Please help me understand this concept more. Just heard If you place this symbol,#, tag in front of your twitter name you can get more followers?
Is this true?

Politicians are doing it here to get voters. May election - Federal.


Also, if anyone can answer this; can you list at yahoo and
google without www.? ex:http://mysongs.tripod.com.index.html

The hashtag is used so that Tweets can be logically grouped together. For example if you wanted to make a Tweet about the Olympics, you would include a hashtag of #Olympics. Anyone who wanted to view Tweets relating to The Olympics would just enter Olympics in the search and click on #Olympics and you get all the tweets.

The hashtag could be anything e.g. #TaylorSwift, #WorldSeries, etc.

It's probably the same in Canada but here in UK some TV and radio programs (particularly current affairs) give out a Twitter hashtags so everyone can join in the discussion and sometimes the Tweets are read out.

I just had a quick look for Canadian Federal Elections and found #cdnpoli - so you could try that.

Hope this helps

Hey Nigel
now I understand how it works, thanks to you smile

Will go and check the elections now.

P.S: The Royal Wedding coming up soon, Canadians here, most of them get caught up in The Royal Family news.

Bye for now
Petra
