At the post, check which of their followers have commented or re-tweeted.

Hashtags or pound key as they were used to be called, are vital to spreading your tweets around. At the beginning of your keyword add the # symbol. This will hashtag your word and everyone searching for that word or phrase will see your hashtag as well. Twitter can suggest the most popular hashtags. As soon as you start typing, a scroll-down menu will appear with suggestions on popular hashtags. You can choose one of them or simply stick with your own. Hashtags are great for starting campaigns on twitter. many major news stations check their campaign progress by using twitter and how many times it has been re-tweeted or liked.
8. No more than 2 two hashtags
Hashtags are great for attracting visitors but do not overdo it. You shouldn’t add more than 2 of them in a tweet. Adding more can confuse visitors. Also, make sure that your hashtags do not stray too far from one another. You can not have one hashtag that says delicious #apples and another that says #pacificocean. If you are advertising apples, you don’t have to get people that are discussing the pacific ocean to read your tweet. They won’t be interested in that topic.
