What’s a Hashtag?

A hashtag is a mechanism invented by the twitter community to make it easier to find content. To use a hashtag like travel just add #travel to the end of your tweet. To search for content using a hashtag search from twitter.com using the search at the top of the page for #travel.

Most Useful Travel Hashtags

  • #travel – this is the most common travel hashtag. Lots of travel content will have this.
  • #’country’ – Look for content about isreal with #israel, spain with #spain, etc
  • #’city’ – Look for content about a particular city like paris with #paris, rome with #rome
  • #’airport’ – Some city names are long so occasionally you will see people use #LAX instead of #LosAngeles (or #LA) and #SFO for #SanFrancisco (sometimes also #SF).

Travel Chats

Sometimes travelers get together for a chat. The way this usually works is one person puts out 10 questions over the course of an hour with a specific hashtag. A popular chat is #TNI or Traveler’s Night In. The first question would be something like:

Q1. What’s your favorite Beach in the World? #tni

When you respond use A1. in your response, or better yet use both A1 and Q1 like this:

A1. The best beach is the Baths on Virgin Gorda Q1. What’s your favorite Beach in the World? #tni
