"The #hashtag strategy is a way to increase the reach of a tweet. By placing a specific # at the end of a tweet, people who do not follow you, but follow the hashtag, will see your tweet. The more hashtags on a tweet the further it goes."

I tagged my usual tribe in the graphic so they would re-tweet it for me; they’re awesome like that. After that, I went about my day.…See More
