Twitter Tagging for Seabirders

Dilek Şahin, March 29, 2015

Hello everyone,

This evening Sjúrður Hammer submitted a very nice blog post about seabirder hashtags on twitter. This post covers the subject very well and it also point the issue with #seabirdersaturday. As this tag is pretty long and easily confused with #seabirdsaturday, Sjúrður mentioned possible replacement with a new one to ensure the correct and efficient usage of the tag. Obviously some people are using #seabirdsaturday instead of the correct one therefore it doesn’t reach its full potential. My personal opinion is to stick with #seabirdersaturday, no matter how long it is. And about the wrong usage, perhaps we can help with correcting when we saw a wrong one.

Other than #seabirdersaturday, the blog examines many other tags commonly used by seabirders. I recommend everyone who are using twitter actively to read the blog so we can agree on some standards in order to achieve the best possible communication among seabirders.
