Top 10 hashtags for writers on Twitter (plus a translation guide) | Novel Publicity

Top 10 hashtags for writers on Twitter (plus a translation guide) | Novel Publicity | Writer's Group | Scoop.it
Twitter can seem intimidating, mostly because it has it’s own language. But learning the difference between #WW and a WIP will help you make connections and build audiences.
First, let’s focus on the hashtag. Because if you’re not using them, you’re not reaching people.
For the uninitiated, a hashtag is any word in which the ‘#’ symbol appears before it. Say I’m really into pie. I can post a tweet that says, I love pie. But a whole new world opens up if I change it to: I love #pie.
Now the word “pie” is a link, and anyone who searches for it will find my tweet.
Pro-tip: If you add any sort of punctuation to your hashtag, it’ll kill the link after that punctuation mark. For example, if you want to hashtag #Bob’s, you’ll only return results for “bob.”
Here are the top 10 hashtags used by writers on Twitter:

Discover great writing & journalism via Twitter: #longreads

Twitter connects people to all forms of media that provide more in-depth context and content than 140 characters can ever provide. A great example of this is found by searching the hashtag #longreads.

Once you do, you'll find tweeted suggestions of long articles and short stories by serious fans of great journalism and writing.

If you're using an official Twitter app, you'll also find that the Top Tweets feature surfaces the most popular content (as determined by community engagement with those Tweets) to the top of the search – it's like a @nytimesbooks bestseller list but in real-time!

The hashtag took off in 2009 and inspired readers to continue their admiration of long-form journalism as emphasis toward short-form began growing. If you want to learn more about the hashtag’s history, The New York Times covered it last November.

Here are some related accounts to consider following if #longreads strikes your fancy:
@longreads: Run by the creator of the hashtag, this account shares the most popular articles and credits whoever surfaced it.
@somethingtoread: Shares select essays and articles that have been saved on @instapaper
@ifyouonly: If you only have time to read one thing...
@longformorg: Shares long-form reads from the past and present.
@sportsfeat: A companion to the account above but devised specifically for sports features.
