Anarchy Nation has numerous Twitter accounts setup for sections on the forum. When members post up new topics, they are posted to the corresponding Twitter Feeds via API. The title of the new topic is posted in the Tweet followed by a link to the corresponding topic. Hashtags on Twitter are the keywords that users input into the search field to find exactly the kinds of Tweets they are looking to view. For this reason, we encourage our members to use #hashtags in order to boost the visibility of their posts!

Are you Twitter illiterate? No problem. Here's a quick parameters:
- Always start with a pound sign (#)
- After the pound sign, they start with a letter and can contain numbers after
- NO spaces, underscores (_) or other special characters
- they are not case sensitive (i.e. #AnarchyNation is the same as #anarchynation)
- USE BUZZWORDS! The best hashtags are those that are currently trending, or widely known.

Here are a couple transitional examples below:

Original: These are my favorite hot pictures of Rihanna
Twitterfied: These are my favorite hot pictures of Rihanna #pics #celeb #sexy

Original: New York Police shoot unarmed homeless man
Twitterfied: New York Police shoot unarmed homeless man #nypd #badcop #p2 #video

Original: Woman falls crushing grapes
Twitterfied: Woman falls crushing grapes #video #funny #fail #lol

Original: What is your favorite car?
Twitterfied: What is your favorite car? #question #domestic #import

Also, there is one other Twitter tag which is the @ tag. These are special tags used to point directly to other Twitter accounts. For example, if you included the @ tag of "@Anarchology", I would be notified of the Tweet on my own Twitter account as well as being seen by anyone else. The @ tags are best used in titles where a specific Twitter user is to be acknowledged in the post. If you aren't familiar with Twitter, you should stick to the #hashtags!
