Get Your Tweets Noticed With The Right Hashtags and Mentions

One of the best ways I have found to get Tweets noticed by my target audience is by putting in the right # hashtags and @ mentions.  You’ll want to use no more than 2-3 of these, and be sure they are relevant; otherwise it looks spammy.  This is especially important for mentions. Topsy.com is a great resource for looking up trending topics.  You can see activity totals and graphs for a tag, mention or plain text.  Using this I determined that #mobileapp was a better option than #mobile for a future Tweet. This is an effective way to optimize your tags and avoid using those that are overused, underused, misspelled or less specific/relevant. Topsy also provides RSS and email alert summaries for search results.
