You literally just write #handmadehour for example- using the hashtag just means if I was to search #handmadehour in the search bar on twitter it will come up with all the tweets that people had made with that particular hashtag.
It’s often good to use specific hashtags depending on what you’ve posted in general. I often hashtag what I do, so I might tweet a photo of my latest creation and briefly say what I’m doing then write: #printmaking #linoprint for example. I sometimes hashtag where I live if I want to attract people in my area.
I know some people use it to hunt for customers- they’ll search for people and follow them, and if they don’t get a reply ‘follow’ within a few days they unfollow them- as you can only follow I think it’s 1000 people more than the followers you have.
I wouldn’t have the time in the day to pick up followers like that though. I just let it happen organically.
Not sure if I’m already following you- I’m on as @curiousseagull1 if you want to follow me I shall follow back & try to help out!
It’s strange getting used to it, but then it all suddenly clicks and it becomes really easy & can be pretty interesting- I’ve found some really cool people through twitter. Took me a good few months to decide I actually liked it though.
