Strategy & guidelines

How we use hashtags (#) at the UT

A hashtag is a keyword or short phrase preceded by the hash symbol (#), which is often included in social media posts to indicate the topic.

The goal of a hashtag is to make the content accessible to all people with similar interests. A simple click or search on a hashtag will create a feed with every other post tagged with that same hashtag.

Below are some hashtags used by University of Twente. Use them to keep the conversation going! Have a hashtag you use often and would like added to the list? Send it to us: socialmedia@utwente.nl.
