Twitter Hashtags Built for Speed

twitter_logoI’ve been thinking a lot about the best ways to social and political movements on Twitter lately. Organizing on Twitter centers around the use of hashtags, and I’ve detailed my latest example of organizing around hashtags in my post “#taxcuts: Creating Twitter Hashtags that Inspire Action.” Soon after, Jon Pincus and I began working on recommendations for how progressives can use the hashtag #p2 and Twitter in a way that facilitates action on and offline as documented in “The #p2 Hashtag and Strategies for Progressives on Twitter.” I hope you’ll read our recommendations and tell us what you think. It would be a big mistake for us to ignore the potential Twitter has for online organizing.
