You can go on and say a lot against Hashtags and their importance, but their value is unquestionable in this world that is insanely connected. The internet is made up of long and short messages delivered online and Hashtags provide with a way of grouping such messages, where one can search for a hashtag and get the set of messages that contain in it.

Quoting Wikipedia:

The first use of the term “hash tag” was in a blog post by Stowe Boyd, “Hash Tags = Twitter Groupings,” on 26 August 2007, according to lexicographer Ben Zimmer, chair of the American Dialect Society’s New Words Committee.

Hashtags are not much different to the ‘keywords for finding information’. The way that hashtags makes communications filterable and organized could be put to great use for getting feedback and suggestions. All that can be said is that hashtags are way beyond powerful and to manage them, you need tools. Tools are power in your hands and there are many powerful tools to effectively manage hashtags and make the most of them.

  2. Hi Sri,

    Thanks for the great information.

    Hashtag is one of the significant item of twitter.

    Generating hashtag by a tool will be admired by every person.

  3. It’s a good collection.I was searching for it since some days. Can we use Twitter hashtags for increasing the Twitter traffic or twitter followers ?

    1. @Chamal
      Indeed you can. If you jump into a related conversation which is trending and have something unique and meaningful to offer, you can drive immense amount of traffic + genuine backlinks using hashtags appropriately.

    Do also checkout EasyHashtag, it provides real time tracking of your Hashtag with detailed downloadable excel reports, it also widgets for Visualizations which can be used for Microsites and Live events.

  5. Nice set of tools for Twitter. I was using Tagboard for tracking Tweets by hashtags until I ran into this site called Qweboo. Wow this site blew my mind. It turns your Twitter Timeline into manageable interest networks using Hashtag community pages.

  6. Hi Srikanth, that was a great read!
    A bit of a biased opinion as I work for the company but if I could recommend one tool, that would be https://brand24.com. Whenever a hashtag gets mentioned anywhere online, a user receives a real-time notification and can take a necessary action. With its mobile app, you can also easily keep track of all the buzz while on the go.
    Worth mentioning is the fact it’s more than just a hashtag tracking tool. With the built-in internal search bar, it only takes seconds to reach the top-priority mentions and exclude not so relevant ones. A range of additional filters allows for sorting the results according to different criteria. On top of that, the collected data is also analyzed in terms of a number of mentions, reach, influence, sentiment etc.

  7. Hi HARSH,

    Thanks for this great post and for including us on it (Tweet Binder) We have totally changed the tool and introduced some new stuff. I would like to contact you to send the new stuff so you can edit your article because many things have changed. Of course if you think that’s interesting for your reader.

    Best
