Twitter is the easiest of all the social media to use, and the use of hashtags is a lot of fun once you get the hang of it. Here is a list of five hashtags that writers can use on twitter to let people know what you're up to, and also to widen your social circle. Often, people will look up particular hashtags and may connect with you through an interesting tweet you've composed. 


  • #amwriting: if you're in the middle of writing something, use it.
