There are a number of conferences in the next month. Many of these have already suggested Twitter hash-tags for people to tweet with. The value of a hash-tag is that it is a short piece of text starting with a hash (#) which is used so that it can easily be identified within the tweet and also so that it can be used as a search term within twitter so that you can quickly find all of the tweets containing the hash-tag. This makes it very easy to follow a conference or event through other people’s thoughts but unfortunately popular (or trending) topics often get spammed because of this so be prepared for some off topic messages!
Some hash-tags to follow in January:
Many of these hash-tags are already well in use ahead of the event and will be used well beyond the event when people are reflecting back too!
