A hashtag on twitter is an indexing tool that allows users who don’t normally follow each other to open a discussion, add to a poll, or just add to the graffiti/noise. Don’t get me wrong here. Graffiti can be art and noise can be music when mindfully created and presented.
Paper.li is promoting the ongoing hashtag #Blogchat on twitter this month. They’ve broken the topics down starting each Sunday. The one beginning this Sunday is” Email + Blogging – This is always a fun topic, we’ll explore ways that email can help us grow our blogs.”
The one thing this hashtag has done is inspire us to take a poke at setting up a Paper.li newsletter. We did that at Belltowernews Daily.
