Twitter hashtags are the best way to discover and get discovered on Twitter. When you use hashtags on Twitter, you make your tweets available to people not following you but following those hashtags. Apart from hashtag search, another important search that individuals and businesses make on Twitter is trend search. Trend searching is looking for what’s trending on Twitter and using that to your advantage.
