Recently a faithful reader here asked which are the most popular Twitter hashtags along with the stats to go with them. Of course, I had to turn to Twitter trending hashtags to see but they change often each and every day or hour. It’s easy to do with a Twitter search of a hashtag.
So if you want to learn a little more about using hashtags for Twitter read on!
Popular Twitter Hashtags For Your Blog
Mayura always comes up with great questions now, doesn’t he? It’s great when that happens because it makes us all think more, expand our knowledge and share with each other what we have learned.
I had briefly touched upon finding the most popular hashtags in my old Hashcore plugin post. One of the best resources I found for finding the trends on Twitter hashtags is Hashtagify. me
Why are popular Twitter hashtags important? They may help your tweets go viral as they may be seen by more people in the Twitterfeed. Not only that but you may increase your engagement with others on the Twitter social network.
People love connecting with others when something is trending and is a hot topic of the day! Oftentimes they will retweet your tweets too if they agree with your perspective on the issue of the day.
HashtagifyMe is a great way to see what’s trending now, last week, and those that are just breaking out. It shows you the 30 most popular Twitter hashtags at any given time.
You can check back over the past week’s most popular hashtags. The breaking out section will show you the date and time it began to break out. When you pick one hashtag it will show you the top 10 related to it.
The company started this service back in April 2011. It was the first visual hashtags explorer. You can use their service for FREE for 7 days or of course upgrade to a premium account starting at $29 per month and do more with their services.
However, the premium would show you the top 50 most popular hashtags and the ability to track your own influencers. They now offer to filter by language with their premium packages as well.
What Can You Do With This One For Your Twitter Hashtags?
You could check to see which are the most popular hashtags of the day and be sure to include some in your tweets if they make sense. Please note: If they make sense! You don’t want to upset your followers by using hashtags that are not about the content you are tweeting about. That would be a great reason for them to stop following you.
You may also want to pick a unique hashtag. One that can set you apart. You can register Twitter hashtags on Hashtags.org This is a great way to set yourself, your blog, or your brand apart.
Pick a hashtag that can grow with your or your brand.
I learned about this one from a user on Biz Sugar Martin Lindeskog as I was working on this post. I really love the visuals on Tagboard! Not only does it help you with Twitter hashtags but it helps with the other social networks’ hashtags too!

You can create your own tagboards with Twitter Hashtags and from various other social networks.
Tagboard also uses the following social networks as well to track your hashtags:
You can also search, interact with, customize, moderate, and grow hashtag communities, all from a centralized and simple interface. They have a free plan where you can sign up and get creative with your tag boards or you can choose their premium plan. Their prices range from $49 to $449 per month.
I’ve read you can embed your tagboards into your blog or website but it does not appear to be a function for the Free version of the social media tool.
Don’t Forget To Use Rite Tag Tool
The other great hashtag tool to guide you is Rite Tag. It is available just for Twitter but will be incorporating Facebook and other social media networks in the near future. They offer Hashtags suggestions for images and texts on desktop and mobile. It is based on real-time hashtag engagement.
I love how it works with the Google Chrome browser. When you are ready to share from a website use their tag in the browser and quickly search for the best Twitter hashtags and schedule it within there. They will save your tweets with the hashtags and measure the shares and clicks of each of the tweets.
It also shows you examples of other hashtags that will work well with your choice. You have a choice to share now or schedule it. Pricing starts at $54 per month with RiteTag’s annual plan.
So What Are The Most Popular Twitter Hashtags?
I’ve given you some great tools to check out the most popular hashtags at the time you need them. But what about in general? I know Mayura was curious to know. Here are some according to Twitter Trends for 2013:
- #Boston Marathon
- #Golden Tweets
- #Team PW
- #SuperBowl and #SB47
Now today in 2022 these are the most popular hashtags:
- #Thursday Vibes
- #Thursday Thoughts
- #Jim Cramer
- #Bitcoin Crash
- #Lunar Crush
- #Avg Price
- #Matt Damon
- #Milky Way
As you can see they are mostly from news and events. Some you would expect to see on the list and others because of the news that is trending today.
Notice the 2nd list is a bit different as today you can search the most popular hashtags via different topics, etc. based on your Twitter feed.
What are the trending Twitter Hashtags back on Feb 1st, 2022?

It is always interesting to look back at the old trending Twitter hashtags as I’ve left them here on the blog post to do just that.
