Use Hashtag Correctly

A hashtag is simply a word or phrase that is used in different social media sites(including Twitter) that is preceded by the sign “#”. Example (#toptechgadgets). It makes it easier for Twitter users to find what they are looking for on the site since these hashtags are searchable. The search result is a long list of tweets that uses the searched hashtag.
