The A-Z Dictionary of Educational Twitter Hashtags

What is a hashtag?

The # symbol, called a hashtag, is used to mark a keyword or a topic in any Tweet. A Twitter user can categorize or follow topics with hashtags.Those hashtags (usually) mean something and are a great way to get a tweet to appear in search results or discussion monitoring. Some of my favorite hashtags are #CareerTechTest#CTE, #acte, and #CareerTechEd.

I hope this helps you find some great Twitter chats to follow, like #edchat, and it will also help your Tweets gain additional exposure.

Please follow the Career Tech Testing Center on Twitter for information on testing, skills standards and educational technology issues.
