What's a hashtag?

The hashtag system is an easy way to help identify and sort tweets and Facebook posts using the pound sign. You might have noticed during TV shows like The Voice promoting tags like #thevoiceau. This makes it possible to 'sort' tweets by hashtag and group tweets from all users based on their inclusion of a given tag. Topical tweets may have one like #politics, event-based tweets might have something like #ausvotes.

Please contact us if there are any questions you'd like answered.
