Hashtags

When people of a specific industry or field are perusing Twitter and wanting to find something that lines up with their interests, what is the first action that they will take? They will start by looking up relevant hashtags. What that means is that it is YOUR job to give people the proper gateways necessary to find you. Test out different hashtags that could apply to your brand. Try hashtags that are already established, so as to piggyback some attention off of other relevant and popular accounts.
