Enhance Your Tweets with Hashtags

Do you use "hashtags" with your tweets? If not, you might be missing out; it’s a great way for people to learn about and follow a topic, theme, resource or special event. The hashtag also enables people to search for tweets containing specific words. Tip: Hashtags are generally added at the end of a tweet. Simply enter the “#” sign before a key word such as “math” or “mathematics” to target your message to specific audiences.
