Attention public relations/marketing/IMC students: Here’s a click that’s worth your time. Brad J. Ward of Butler University asked his Twitter followers the question above. Here are the answers that came back. It’s a lovely mosaic of truly useful information.
This kind of search is possible through the Twitter hashtag, which is frequently used for live tweeting of events. Everyone agrees to use a short alphanumeric code, preceded by the pound sign (#), so Twitter Search can find them all. Just enter the hastag as your search term. That way, you can read the tweets, even if you don’t follow all of the individuals who are participating.
Sure enough, there’s a website that keeps track of hashtags.
