I was hoping to do an Ignite Bath presentation last week on why my home town (Bath, UK) needs a hashtag. I didn’t do it so thought I’d share my thinking here.
Events in the city have their own hashtags but using a common, city-focused tag as well would help amplify these events across the city. This would help people in the city who are on Twitter see what is going on and would provide a useful view of what’s happening for visitors.
#bath is used quite a bit but then it is peppered with bathing related tweets as well.
So, how about using #bathuk . . . it’s short and to the point and would cut out bathroom type tweets.
There you go. Probably would have needed fleshing out as an Ignite talk!
