The shortest path to becoming an influencer for an existing hashtag is to connect with its current influencers. And the shortest path to getting a new hashtag off the ground is to connect with relevant influencers who would be interested in promoting it.
Given these premises, it’s hardly a surprise that the most used area of our Hashtag Intelligence tool is the Influencers panel. And that’s also the reason why we packed lots of features into this panel.
To make it easier to understand how you can use this panel to find the most interesting influencers for your hashtags, and to connect with them, we created a new detailed video walkthrough. Enjoy!
Participating in this contest has been amazing. It’s not only helped me to hone my writing skills, but also introduced me to Hashtagify, which is truly an excellent tool that I use to monitor various campaigns
Katie added that she’s excited to use her prize earnings to kick-start a business idea she’s working on, which involves facilitating workshops to students in the Netherlands teaching them tech skills like coding. Katie, congratulations and good luck!

We’re really proud to promote the good use of hashtags with these and other free features, like our recently released popular hashtags charts. If you want to show your support for our choice to keep these tools free, you can share this post and to follow us on Twitter!
Yes, #EMAzing was the most tweeted hashtag in the world last week. Not bad for a hashtag that just entered the top 30 chart; as a matter of fact, if you consider the full last month, #EMAzing was only 8th, left in the dust by #غرد_بذكر_الله, an Arab hashtag that tops the monthly chart and could be translated as “Tweet remembrance of God”.
But the real news, for us, is that starting today you can easily keep an eye on the top 30 hashtags for last month, last week, and just breaking out, and for 35 different languages: We just published hashtagify.me Popular Hashtags Charts, a new free feature for all those interested in hashtags.
Want to know which were the top 30 hashtag during the last week in, say, French? Just go to hashtagify.me, and click on our new Popular Hashtags menu
Next, click the language selector and pick French
Last, click the Last Week tab
You can now see the top hashtags, with their rank (and rank change), their popularity, their popularity trend, and their main language – ie, the language that’s most commonly used with that hashtag.
As a matter of fact, a hashtag that is the most used in French tweets can be also used in other languages – and, like in the example above with #EMAzing, it can be used mostly in English. This is interesting, because it allows you find out which of the top hashtags are “native” to the language you’re checking.
So, this is how you can find the top hashtags in many languages. The data is updated daily – and, for the “breaking out” hashtags, in real time. We really hope you’ll enjoy this new free feature. And, if you like it, please, don’t forget to share your likes with your friends!
How good are you at analyzing hashtags using hashtagify.me? And how good are you at blogging? If you’re good at both, you’ll be interested in our first blogging competition.
In short, we want to show how, with hashtagify.me, users can find great information related to hashtags. During the next two months we want to publish eight blog posts that showcase both some examples of the information you can find, and how you can find it using our tool. We want you to find that information and write the posts.
Here’s the deal:
You use hashtagify.me to search and analyze some hashtags of your choosing, and find some surprising, or funny, or useful facts.
You write a great blog post based on the facts you found, also describing how you got them using hashtagify.me. If we like your post, we publish it and pay you $250
After we’re finished publishing all 8 blog posts of the series, we ask our users and an expert jury to vote them. If your post comes out on top, we give you the $2,000 final prize.
And that’s not all. We need to add a social media analyst and blogger to our team, and we’re really looking forward to use this opportunity to find the best candidates.
Duncan Rice @dunk_rice is a social media marketer and user of hashtagify.me. He recently got a new job and was kind enough to share the story of how he got it with us.
In December (so a little over 6 months ago) my wife and I adopted a
cat from Cats Protection, a UK cat re-homing charity. A few weeks later, she read a Facebook post from them asking for someone to help out with their new website and social media accounts, something I had been interesting in for a while. She showed me the post, we went along to the next homing show and … to cut a long story short, I am now running the @CrawleyReigate Twitter & Pinterest accounts and assisting on FB and the website in a voluntary capacity
One of the other volunteers on the website works in project management for an insurance company and when I decided to open a LinkedIn account, was one of my first connections. He works in the same building at an Internet Consulting firm and, you guessed it, showed the boss of this firm some of the work I’ve been doing.
Another LinkedIn connection followed, a friendly chat was arranged and before I knew it we were talking about social media, content management, web & app based tools etc.
Part of this discussion focused on the use of hashtags – how they could be used and where to find the right ones. We’d used some live testing of tools like OneQube and Tagboard, but Hashtagify was the only tool which enabled us to find related tags.
In the second interview we did another live test with Hashtagify, using the advanced mode to establish links between the most relevant tags. Your tool made a great impression and enabled me to identify a number of related tags which we could use to target specific industries, groups etc.
I’m now delighted to say that yesterday I was offered the position of Digital Marketing Executive with the added goal of increasing the companys social media presence!
Thank you for helping me make that good impression and I look forward to hearing more about the new hashtag timing feature – looks great!
Duncan, thank you for sharing this great story with us! And good luck with your new job!!
Hashtagify.me has been collecting data about hashtags on Twitter since April 2011, and the use of hashtags has only been going up since then. So, after little more than two years, we’re proud to announce that today we passed the mark of 15 million hashtags classified in our systems, that you can still search and browse almost instantly.
Not just that. In the next weeks we’re going to release on hashtagify.me many new, advanced features, and still for the same convenient price of 0 USD.
Now that we’re talking about it, would you like to know why is hashtagify.me free, and help us keeping it that way? You can do that, read about our approach, and validate it with your feedback. Oh, and you can also gain early access to our new features – you just need to answer a few questions about which features you’d like more. Read more.
Hashtagify.me has just become an even more powerful free tool for all those interested in Twitter hashtags. In addition to finding the top related hashtags and the top influencers for each hashtag, now you can also find which are the top languages used with it.
As the Twitter audience continues to become more and more global, it is important to know which hashtags are relevant to which language speakers. Hashtagify.me already allowed you to explore 12,499,159 hashtags (and counting); now you can also find out if they are used by the language community you’re interested into.
To get this new data, just go to hashtagify.me, search your hashtag, and open the “Languages” tab. Enjoy!
