  6. Hi all! Glad to be here talking about #hashtags Looking forward to some roundtable discussion on what we all have learned #b2ctweet
  7. Welcome to #B2CTweet I'll be tweeting from @b2ctweet and @GrowMap ~ Find out more about today's chat at  http://b2ct.me/PkYzZm m
  8. Thanks, Gail ( @GrowMap ) for the reminder that we are an hour earlier. Reminders are helpful! #b2ctweet

  10. You can get a preview of the #B2CTweet chat questions we will be discussing here:  http://b2ct.me/PkYzZm m
  11. RT @prbeam: RT @socialwebcafe Join us Wed 3p EDT #B2CTweet Twitter Chat --> Talking about hashtags and trending  http://b2ct.me/b2cchat at
  12. A1 There is an interesting article on the "short and illustrious history" of the #hashtag here->  http://ht.ly/cZLKd #b2b2ctweet
  13. I used to think that the Twitter #hashtag started with Twitter, but Twitter was around in 2006 and the #hashtag came in 2007 #b2ctweet
  14. More from a history lesson on the #hashtag Here is a #flickr image of the first mention of using #hashtags  http://ht.ly/cZMfp #b2b2ctweet
  15. I can't imagine Twitter without #hashtags How did people communicate before #hashtags? #b2ctweet
  16. @b2cchat I suppose, back before Twitter became extremely popular, it was a lot easier to do the searches. #b2ctweet
  17. Yes, and now the searches seem like they are becoming even more difficult and Twitter seems to #archive less. #b2ctweet
  18. I am not sure of the reliability of the searches since I have tweets that actually don't show up in searches. Still need #hashtag #b2ctweet
  19. @socialwebcafe Am seriously a newbie when it comes to #hashtag but i know it's quit powerful #b2ctweet
  20. Join us NOW from 3 until 5 EDT in #B2CTweet chat to discuss Twitter #Hashtags, Tracking and Trending  http://b2ct.me/PkYzZm m via b2ctweett
  21. I remember when I first started using Twitter and the mentions, shout outs, DM and then the hashtag... seemed confusing #b2ctweet
  22. I get so many more results in #snapbird than straight #Twitter #hashtag searches. And, no I am not affiliated with #snapbird :) #b2ctweet
  23. #hashtags are so helpful in pin-pointing the actual search versus just the word. It is very useful. #b2ctweet
  24. @DoubleLinx It is! Though, one time I didn't find a tweet that was truly there, but #snapbird definitely finds more than #Twitter #b2ctweet
  25. Great illustration of value of #hashtags! Our @b2ctweet bird was chirping but you couldn't hear her. Why? no #b2ctweet hashtag #b2ctweet
  26. LOL....we have just proved the value of hashtags and what happens when the tool you're using isn't appending them as you expect! #b2ctweet
  27. There are great tools out there for Twitter Chats & Parties and as you can tell, the #hashtag is essential when you participate #b2ctweet
  28. Without the #hashtag, it is almost impossible to follow a Twitter Chat or Twitter Party. #b2ctweet
  29. I really do hope to learn a lot today, i can imagine the progress i will make if i have more opportunity to hangout with you all #b2ctweet
  30. Twitter search you have to remember to switch to ALL tweets to see them - default is TOP tweets when you search! @socialwebcafe #b2ctweet
  31. @b2ctweet True, but even so, I have had tweets that don't show up in #Twitter searches. I could be looking right at the tweet... #b2ctweet
  32. If you want to know what the most common #hashtags are for any particular niche or topic just ask @johnny10119 #b2ctweet
  33. We use Topsy to find out which hashtags are most popular or in use and to find new ones to use for Twitter parties @johnny10119 #b2ctweet
  34. @socialwebcafe true talk because the #hashtag helps locate and follow the topic, but sometimes on twitter it hard to send tweets #b2ctweet
  35. I had not run across @snapbirdsearch before @socialwebcafe Or I don't remember having used it. More results you say? Great! #b2ctweet
  36. Too bad @snapbirdsearch doesn't tweet from that account. They could've joined us & told us more about it. #b2ctweet
  37. I always find it amusing that Twitter app developers don't ever use their Twitter accounts...LOL...so weird @socialwebcafe #b2ctweet
  38. Have you tried setting up #hashtags in @commun_it yet? They keep more history than most anything else @socialwebcafe #b2ctweet
  39. Great idea! RT @GrowMap: Have you tried setting up #hashtags in @commun_it yet? They keep more history than most anything else #b2ctweet
  40. Actually we're chatting from 3 to 5 EDT to transition to a new time slot @GreenDivaMeg We did't want to miss anyone! #b2ctweet
  41. Feel free to ask any questions you may have @johnny10119 If we don't know @GrowMap or @socialwebcafe or someone else will! #b2ctweet
  42. @GrowMap Before this week, I would say @snapbirdsearch always gave 100% of the tweets (I tracked), but then some didn't show up #b2ctweet
  43. In all fairness, I will blame a technical glitch rather than @snapbirdsearch since all the other times, they were right on! #b2ctweet
  44. TweetChat is MUCH easier to use and set up @socialwebcafe But TweetGrid is necessary if you're co-hosting a large Twitter Party #b2ctweet
  45. @b2ctweet Sure i don't have a problem with questions because i love learning new things to help my business #b2ctweet
  46. We need to all be aware that Twitter DOES censor tweets and #hashtags so they may NOT appear in Twitter Search! @socialwebcafe #b2ctweet
  47. And because Twitter apps often use only what is CURRENTLY in Twitter search you won't find them in those tools either. #b2ctweet
  48. Only in the Twitter apps that archive tweets like @commun_it and @Nimble - not all save tweets. Most use Twitter's live database #b2ctweet
  49. @GrowMap Do you have any idea HOW they censor? algorithms, etc.? I know of entire Twitter profiles that don't show up in search #b2ctweet
  50. @GrowMap So are you saying it's a thing of luck to use #hashtags when tweeting ? #b2ctweet
  51. there are certain HTs i know are popular for a relevant topic, like #greenliving - sometimes i just guess using common sense #b2ctweet
  52. A1 I tend to think about what I would want to search for when deciding what to turn into a #hashtag in my tweet #b2ctweet
  53. Deborah @socialwebcafe archives all our chats and parties so you CAN go back and follow everyone and reread! @johnny10119 #b2ctweet
  54. Yes. Start with common sense and then use @Topsy to see what is popular to connect with NEW groups @GreenDivaMeg #b2ctweet
  55. Or find the group you want to connect with and then use the hashtags they prefer @GreenDivaMeg #b2ctweet
  56. I'm not sure what you mean about using hashtags being a thing of luck? @johnny10119 #b2ctweet
  57. RT @GrowMap: thanks for @Topsy. Yes. Start with common sense and then use @Topsy to see what is popular to connect with NEW groups #b2ctweet
  58. We are doing a two hour chat today Enstine so that we don't miss anyone as we move our regular time back one hour @Easy_retweet #b2ctweet
  59. Welcome to all of you joining us at our previously-regular #B2CTweet Chat time of 4pm EDT. We started at 3pm EDT today to transition.
  60. I Love @Topsy !! I also use it every day to see how my content is spreading via retweets @GreenDivaMeg Just search for your URL #b2ctweet
  61. @b2ctweet Yeah, and some of us "in the know" needed extra nudges, too! Thnx, @GrowMap ! #b2ctweet
  62. RT @b2ctweet Welcome to all of you joining us at our previously-regular #B2CTweet Chat time of 4pm EDT. #b2ctweet
  63. RT @b2ctweet: We are doing a two hour chat today Enstine so that we dont miss anyone as we move our regular time back one hour #b2ctweet
  64. One thing about #b2ctweet chats and parties. We won't leave u hanging! If there's a change, we will still be there for u at the "old time"
  65. Awww cute... Deb @socialwebcafe has changed our @b2ctweet Avatar to our new mascot her daughter made out of clay. And CAKE! #b2ctweet
  66. Oops... I think it is on @b2cchat Soon on @b2ctweet Here it is:  http://ht.ly/cZQKa nice to have a talented daughter) #b2b2ctweet
  67. Every chat about Twitter is bound to mention @commun_it You're welcome to join #B2CTweet chat going on now @SharelOmer
  68. A2 One of the things that I wonder if people think about, with chats, is the length of the #hashtag #b2ctweet
  69. not sure where you all are, but we are about to get a banging #thunderstorm here in northern NJ . . . may need to unplug for a bit #b2ctweet
  70. Think about it. If I start a chat with #whatIamDoingThisNextFridayAndSaturday how much can people add in their tweet? #b2ctweet
  71. Though, that just relates to the chat and parties, etc. and may be a fun trending #hashtag #whatIamDoingThisNextFridayAndSaturday #b2ctweet
  72. Thanks for the heads up and totally understand Meg @GreenDivaMeg We are in two different locations to make sure you don't lose us #b2ctweet
  73. @GreenDivaMeg Certainly understandable and you need to take care of yourself! #b2ctweet
  74. Good question @DoubleLinx Commun.it is a Twitter Relationship Management Tool. How I use it in this post >>  http://growmap.com/twitter-relationship-management-solution-communit/ wib2ctweetationship-management-solution-communit/ #b2ctweet
  75. On determining your #hashtag, the first thing is to determine what the purpose. We can simplify that into two areas. #b2ctweet
  76. For Tweets ... Like @GreenDivaMeg said, common sense... no pressure, just hashtag as you feel or want. #b2ctweet
  77. For chats, parties, and trending, 1) Follow what is designated if following 2) keep length and brand in mind if hosting #b2ctweet
  78. A2 Choice of hashtag is critical especially if you want people who don't know what it means to figure it out! SHORT is important! #b2ctweet
  79. What's the best Hashtag app/site out there? I'd like to add to our new list of IM tools  http://goo.gl/HNWrr #bb2ctweet
  80. Here is an article on @Sprout_Insights on how to choose a #hashtag Worth the read, with great tools referenced! #b2ctweet
  81. RT @socialwebcafe: For chats and parties 1) Follow what is designated if following 2) keep length & brand in mind if hosting #b2ctweet
  82. Do you mean to FIND hashtags or DEFINE hashtags or LIST chats and parties? There are sites for all of those @DoubleLinx #b2ctweet
  83. RT @socialwebcafe Article on @Sprout_Insights on how to choose a #hashtag Worth the read, with great tools referenced! #b2ctweet
  84. A3 I use #hashtags for tweets that I want to archive in Evernote. Anyone else use @evernote ? #b2ctweet
  85. A3 I use #hashtags to target a specific audience, to connect with an existing interest group, and to search #b2ctweet
  86. So, not only are #hashtags handy for 1) searching 2) tracking (chat) 3) trending but also 4) reporting #b2ctweet
  87. Not the fancy ways you use Evernote @socialwebcafe Us quasi-geeks aren't up to speed on the fancy stuff - yet ;-) #b2ctweet
  88. For example. Let's say I tell @GrowMap that I want to help by tweeting her article 3 times over the next 3 days... #b2ctweet
  89. i'm back . . . i've never STARTED a #hashtag. any ideas about that? would love to start a #greendiva thing! #b2ctweet
  90. I could look in my Twitter sent stream, but if I am really busy, I might get distracted.... #b2ctweet
  91. FYI: I'm seeing dup tweets in #b2ctweet chat on @tweetgrid but not in tweetchat or on Twitter.
  92. A bunch of geeks out there came up with recipes on @IFTTT so you non-geeks don't have to! Plug-n-play right into @evernote #b2ctweet
  93. Do what you can to stake a claim for the hashtag you want to start @GreenDivaMeg List it on sites that post them & blog it #b2ctweet
  94. All that the tweep has to know, is how to type (or paste) a #hashtag cc: @IFTTT @evernote #b2ctweet
  95. ROFLOL @socialwebcafe What is "super easy" to a true geek makes normal people's heads explode. LOL #b2ctweet
  96. @GrowMap - excellent. what are the best sites for listing. i've tried a few, but were mostly disappointed. need to update lists #b2ctweet
  97. RT @GrowMap: ha ha ha - ROFLOL @socialwebcafe What is "super easy" to a true geek makes normal people's heads explode. LOL #b2ctweet
  98. Agreed that @IFTTT makes is MUCH easier but we non-geeks still have to get YOU to write us a how-to post ;-) @socialwebcafe #b2ctweet
  99. Ah, touche @GrowMap I struggle with the definition of "super easy" constantly! #b2ctweet
  100. Yes, they come and go @GreenDivaMeg Deb didn't I just publish some of those or were we just using them? I can't remember #b2ctweet
  101. When you want to stake your claim to a #hashtag don't really care how good - just want to make sure others KNOW @GreenDivaMeg #b2ctweet
  102. So I list anywhere I find to make sure anyone thinking about using that #hashtag knows it is already taken! @GreenDivaMeg #b2ctweet
  103. You can't keep anyone else from using the same #hashtag but wiser tweeps will want to claim one that is UNUSED @GreenDivaMeg #b2ctweet
  104. I always wonder if there are other out there lurking. I wish we could get them to just tweet hi with the hashtag :-) #b2ctweet
  105. Remember the song "I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing?" #cocacola  http://ht.ly/cZSYz  I'd like to setup @ifIFTTTor ... #b2b2ctweet
  106. Everyone is welcome - especially newbies - we love to share tips and make it easy for you to get up to speed #b2ctweet
  107. @GrowMap yes, you published a link. I agree, the problem is they do come and go. Understandable, with burnout (re: hashtag) #b2ctweet
  108. Well when you're ready to explain how you use @IFTTT I'm all ears @socialwebcafe Guest post or teach me and I'll write it up #b2ctweet
  109. RT @socialwebcafe Join us Wed 3p EDT #B2CTweet Twitter Chat --> Talking about hashtags and trending  http://b2ct.me/b2cchat at
  110. Q4 What Twitter Apps and Tools are available to track hashtags? #b2ctweet
  111. If anyone is interested, we could have a #B2CTweet twitter chat devoted to talking about ideas for @IFTTT ... anyone? @b2ctweet #b2ctweet
  112. RT @b2ctweet: TY! Everyone is welcome - especially newbies - we love to share tips and make it easy for you to get up to speed - #b2ctweet
  113. We'll collect all the links to #hashtag related apps and tools and publish them in the archive of this chat #b2ctweet
  114. Too early for @IFTTT Deb @socialwebcafe LOL You'd have to talk to yourself and @billhartzer because we would be LOST #b2ctweet
  115. For those of you who have never heard of @IFTTT ... @MadalynSklar told me about it and I love it! It automates tasks! #b2ctweet
  116. A good way to find all the #hashtag listing sites could be to search for a popular hashtag like #blogchat @GreenDivaMeg #b2ctweet
  117. But, it IS helpful to have an idea of how to use it, so let us know if that is of interest. I would recommend recipes for @IFTTT #b2ctweet
  118. For non-geeks @IFTTT is used to trigger an action from an alert = IF THIS happens then DO THIS action / share @socialwebcafe #b2ctweet
  119. What we need is "a few with a clue" first...lol...@IFTTT is way over my head at this point @socialwebcafe #b2ctweet
  120. A4 I absolutely love @hashtracking They are in beta right now, but when they launch... @hashtracking provides all of the stats #b2ctweet
  121. I totally understand the concept of @IFTTT - it is the how to actually DO IT that is lacking for now @GrowMap I need lessons! #b2ctweet
  122. A4 We can't wait for @hashtracking to launch because we haven't seen anything nearly as good for tracking Twitter Parties & Chats #b2ctweet
  123. RT @GrowMap: A4 We cant wait 4 @hashtracking to launch bc we havent seen anything nearly as gd 4 tracking Twitter Parties & Chats #b2ctweet
  124. There is a great article by @kikolani on @commun_it blog: 6 Tools to Learn More About Your Twitter Engagement  http://ht.ly/cZUub b2b2ctweet
  125. Also, let's not forget abt Twitter's trending topics. Interesting discussion on that, in this article:  http://ht.ly/cZUDA b2b2ctweet
  126. Keep in mind the #sanitycheck Gail and I ran a report that said I had 100% female followers. Last I checked hubby is a male! #b2ctweet
  127. Thanks @tweetreachapp Can you tell us if your pro version can give us our FULL #b2ctweet stats or if Twitter limits that? Thanks
  128. LOL @socialwebcafe There is a valid reason for the quote, "lies, damn lies and statistics" attributed to Mark Twain #b2ctweet
  129. Thanks @tweetreachapp Can you tell us if your pro version can give us our FULL #b2ctweet stats or if Twitter limits that? Thanks
  130. There are great stats in @Topsy and it is pretty easy-to-use. Quick, too. #b2ctweet
  131. Statistics and analytics will cause you more grief than benefit if you don't apply them w/ common sense & know affecting variables #b2ctweet
  132. If you are looking for just an archive... @Storify is a great option. Not as much of an #analytics tool, but can give you qty #b2ctweet
  133. Yes but for some reason @Topsy is not picking up our #b2ctweet Tweets right now @socialwebcafe
  134. I think many apps limit at 1500 because of a #Twitter limit. We don't want to make #Twitter unhappy with us. cc: @tweetreachapp #b2ctweet
  135. @GrowMap shame on them! :D Ok, then should I take back the recommendation? lol #b2ctweet
  136. Seriously, though, the best stats for individuals is through a pro @Communi_It account and the best reporting is @hashtracking #b2ctweet
  137. We should do a post on @Storify Deb @socialwebcafe Actually multiple posts on how you're using it to archive Twitter Chats #b2ctweet
  138. LOL @socialwebcafe No we won't disown @Topsy - they are a great tool. Just not picking them up right now. #b2ctweet
  139. RT @socialwebcafe: Best stats for individuals is through a pro @Communi_It account & best reporting is @hashtracking #b2ctweet
  140. Still looking for a #Twitter analytics tool that will "suffice" while I wait for full launch of @hashtracking @tweetreachapp ? #b2ctweet
  141. Before we go... does anyone have any #hashtags they want to share? Great time for #shameless plugs, too! #b2ctweet
  142. @socialwebcafe But some apps get their data in other ways, so they have more complete access. It varies from app to app. #b2ctweet
  143. .@tweetreachapp Thanks. Would love to have you as a guest on one of our Twitter chats, talking to us about your services #b2ctweet
  144. RT @GrowMap: Every chat about Twitter is bound to mention @commun_it You're welcome to join #B2CTweet chat going on now @SharelOmer
  145. I want to be sure everyone here now knows about next week's chat and party because we have some VALUABLE PRIZES you will want! #b2ctweet
  146. Do check them out - and we WILL be publishing a post on  http://B2CTweet.com with full details on how to enter to win #bb2ctweet
