Twubs website on MacBook

Twubs is a community of Twitter users who are in groups that pertain to specific Twitter hashtags. For example, if your blog is about fishing, you can search for fishing hashtags and join the fishing Twubs groups. Group members actually interact through Twitter.

On the Twubs website, enter a keyword into the search box to see a continuously updated stream of tweets using that hashtag—as well as a snapshot of the Twubs group members connected to that hashtag. If a group has not been formed around a hashtag that you enter, you can join Twubs and register the hashtag to start a group. A hashtag directory is also offered where you can search for hashtags alphabetically.

You can also see trending hashtags by country, or enter a hashtag in the search bar to find out where that hashtag is popular in the world at any given moment.

Twitter - Trending

One of the best websites to find trending Twitter hashtags is Twitter itself. Select Explore (or the magnifying icon) on Twitter > Trending to see the hashtags that are trending in your area.

To change the settings to another region, select the settings gear next to the Twitter search bar, and select Explore locations. From there, you can select any region, world-wide, to view its trending hashtags.

You can increase traffic to your blog with Twitter in a variety of ways, but if you're not including the right Twitter hashtags in your tweets, you're missing a huge opportunity to increase the number of people who see and share your tweets.
