#Hashtags – A Way To Follow Trending Topics On The Web.

Many people are used to following people on Twitter. But did you know you can follow topics of conversation by following a topic’s Hashtag.

For example, yesterday I blogged about ‘Mothers Who Blog’, but to follow some of the topics around this post I followed the hashtag ‘#bloggybootcamp’ using my TweetDeck. This way I could follow some of the tweets coming in directly related to the hashtag.

So as more and more people begin to tweet, they should start using the hashtag to allow others to follow the trending topic.

To see related tweets to a hashtag visit :

http://hashtags.org/

Update 16.04.2010

Just noticed this message on the link above :

hashtags.org has had a rough history, in both technology and focus. it doesn’t look like these problems will be rectified by the current team. that said, we are looking to sell our assets (@hashtags, hashtags.org, etc.).

if you have any interest in this project, please contact cody marx bailey.

Just tried testing a Hashtag again (#entrepreneur), still working ….phew!

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say you have done a excellent job with this. In addition, the blog loads very fast for me on Chrome. Outstanding Blog!
