Hashtags: helping you find interesting Tweets
*
People use the hashtag symbol # before relevant keywords in their Tweet to categorize those Tweets to show more easily in Twitter Search.
*
Clicking on a hashtagged word in any message shows you all other Tweets in that category.
*
Hashtags can occur anywhere in the Tweet.
*
Hashtagged words that become very popular are often Trending Topics.Example: Below, @VegNews added the hashtag before the word "vegan" in their message. The word is now a link to search results for all Tweets containing "#vegan" in the message.
