Participate in Dance-Related Conversations on Twitter

Posted on July 10, 2011


If you aren’t a Twitter user already, get involved! In this digital age there is so much online content to share and discuss and Twitter is a great platform for that. On this particular social networking site, hashtags (#) are used to denote keywords or topics of conversation. Users include these short topic titles within their tweets and they show up in a larger conversation when you click them. You can also search for a hashtag through the Twitter search bar, and often even on Google, to see the entire conversation in realtime.
