30 Days: Non-ag Hashtags You Should Be Watching

Several years ago, I attended a conference in Iowa called IBlog. This was the first in a line of many social media conferences that I would attend. It was unique however, as it was where I first learned to use Twitter. It didn’t take long before I was hooked. Our evenings at home became full of new terms such as tweet, followers, hashtags (or the pound sign, as my husband continues to call it), retweets and mentions. It was a game to see how many followers mommy could get throughout the day. Before I realized what was happening, I had a healthy following of moms, photographers, hunters and home improvement fanatics.

While my schedule doesn’t allow me to spend as much time devoted to Twitter, I still firmly believe that its a goldmine for agriculture advocates. The key is finding your target audiences through hashtags. Below you’ll find some useful hashtags to help you connect to non-ag people.
