How to Follow a Hashtag on Twitter in 2019

. 5 min read

Instagram launched an amazing feature last year allowing us to follow hashtags on the platform. Post that, have you been thinking how to follow a hashtag on Twitter?

Twitter should have launched this feature as of now given the importance of hashtags on Twitter. So far, Twitter has no direct way to let the users follow their favorite hashtags.

How to Delete Tweets by Date
Do you want to delete that one specific tweet that you posted in the month of December last year? Or, you can’t get enough time to delete all your tweets from 2017? Or, whether it’s that one tweet you published on last valentine’s that needs to be erased? Whatever your reason may be to delete tweet…

Twitter currently shows you only the trending hashtags on your feed. These trending hashtags can be customized as per your location or any country that you wish to get trending hashtags of.

But, with Twitter’s latest update, there might be a way to follow a hashtag. These are not direct method but indirect methods of following a hashtag. Let me quickly demonstrate both:

Just search for a hashtag on Twitter and Twitter is going to save it as your recent searches. Whenever you wish to check the latest tweets of this hashtag, click on the search bar, and Twitter will show your recent searches.

How to Unfollow Your Twitter Accounts without Getting Suspended
Thousands of Twitter users feel stranded when their Twitter account gets suspended overnight due to aggressive behavior on the platform. Twitter’s stringent policies have made it harder for users to unfollow Twitter accounts without putting their accounts at risk. The attempt has been made by Twitt…

If you want to remove any hashtag from your recent searches, just click on the x next to it and it will be deleted.

Method 2: Using the Updated Explore Page (#) to Follow a Hashtag:

Have you seen the updated “Explore page” of Twitter? It has a # mark at the top and it focuses only on the hashtags for your profile. This is what it looks like:

Inactive Twitter accounts are accounts that have been created but not used by Twitter users for a good time like a few weeks to months or years. Inactive accounts cou…

The explore page also shows the hashtags that you’re interested in on the basis of accounts you follow. Here’s how they pick the hashtags to show:

On the basis of the accounts you follow, Twitter picks up the hashtags that you’re interested in and displays the tweets on your Explore tab.

You can leverage this new feature of Twitter to follow a hashtag on Twitter.

How to follow a Hashtag on Twitter using the Explore Tab?

Step 1: Follow the accounts who are posting the same hashtags that you want to follow.

Step 2: To follow accounts posting a particular hashtag, login to the Circleboomdashboard. On the Circleboom dashboard, select “Follow”-> “Hashtag/keyword Search”

Step 3: Type the hashtag you want to follow and follow the accounts posting tweets for that hashtags. Follow at least 20-25 accounts for Twitter to notice the similarity within your follow. Also, refrain from aggressive following as it’s a violation of Twitter rules.

Step 4: While following accounts from the Circleboom dashboard, you can also use the grid power search to search for particular keywords real-time. You can also only follow verified accounts by using the filter.

Step 5: After following the accounts, wait for a few days and then check back on your Explore tab. You will see the updated hashtags on your Explore tab.

This process is cumbersome compared to the first one but this will make accessing all your favorite hashtags on one page rather than searching for each one of them individually.

How to know your Twitter followers insights

Sometimes, you should be okay with the unfollowers as it’s beyond your control. But, if your unfollower ratio is high, it’s important to know who unfo…
