Twitter is a hot spot for user engagement. It’s an active social network with millions of updates being sent out each minute. Hashtags make it easier for your content to be seen by the masses. When you use hashtags that lots of other people are also using, you join a wider conversation that sends people to your profile and familiarizes people with your brand.
Hashtags that follow the days of week are especially popular–you’ve probably seen #WednesdayWisdom or #ThrowbackThursday. There are hashtags for every day of the week.
Here’s a guide to using hashtags for engagement every day of the week. These hashtags are also active on Instagram!

There are tons of hashtags for each day of the week, so you can switch it up and use different hashtags each week. Before you post using any hashtag, make sure you do a quick search to ensure the hashtag’s other posts fit with your brand image. Sometimes hashtags can be “hijacked” and used for another purpose, and if that happens, it can be a recipe for a branding disaster.
Remember the rule of 2 when it comes to using hashtags: If you’re using more than 2 hashtags, it’s 2 many.
Studies have shown that Twitter posts that include more than 2 hashtags get around 35% less engagement per extra hashtag than those with 1 or 2 hashtags. One or two seems to be the sweet spot–posts without hashtags get less engagement across the board.
