Don't let Twitter get you down! - Part 2

Here is where I go through tweeting, probably something that may be the most daunting to a lot of you.  There's a lot of jargon and rules that go with tweets, but once you understand what goes where and why, it becomes Childs play!  

What and why do we us hash tags? - This is a hash tag- #. Simple enough isn't it, but why do we use them on Twitter. When you place a hash tag before a keyword or phrase (phrases that follow a hash tag, don't have spaces e.g. #throwbackthursday), that keyword or phrase are then easy to search for in the Twitter search bar. If you click on that word or phrase, it will show you who else has used that hash tag in their tweet.  Hash tags tend to give your post extra reach, as other users who do not follow you can see the tweet. This leads me on to trends and trending. Best practice with hash tags is to use no more than 2, don't spam!
