HashTag v2.5

By Rob Kenny
Posted April 5, 2009, in Social Media.


The HashTag plugin is yet another Twitter plugin. It will tweet the entry title and a link using the account in the plugin settings, it can also add hashtags to your tweets. Hashtags are Twitter's version of tags; they provide a way of adding structure to your tweets and allowing people to filter tweets against their interests.

It was written because I was always forgetting to add #mt to all my MT related blog post tweets, which in turn meant that they were being missed by HashMT, which collates all the #mt posts onto a single site.

Supports tweeting scheduled posts and pages.


Movable Type versions: 4.3

I am just putting the finishing touches to oauth support (currently it is running on my site).

Such Twitter plugin is a cool thing I should say. Hashtags are known worldwide now, but some people still don’t know how to use them and make mistakes while tweeting. I was about to write my paper on the 10 common mistakes students make while tweeting about their studying. Such hashtags as #education and #professor are the rarest, while #party and #exams are the most frequent.
