In case you missed the voting for my earlier post "Hashtaggery" (sounded clever when I wrote it very late one night) I've made a decision.

The question was, what unique hashtag should I use for the Gene Stilp for Congress Campaign on Twitter?

Originally I was leaning toward something clever, but in the end I settled for something easily identifiable and easy to remember.  Not so much pizazz, but hopefully effective.  

#Stilp2012 is the winner.

Yeah, I know.  It's kinda lame compared to the likes of #NerdParty and #YouOutYoDamnMindIf - but hey, it says what it needs to say.

The real trick now is to get someone other than us to use it.

Maybe shameless bribery will work?  Worth a try...

First 10 people to use the hashtag #Stilp2012 in some positive way will be rewarded with:

1.  Top consideration for Retweets in the future.
2.  Reciprocal hashtag promotion (as long as it's relevant and not profane).

In other words, I'll RT you and help you move your unique hashtag along.  Again, it must be relevant and not profane.

We'll see what happens.  It's hard to predict, but fun experimenting with the evolution of Social Media in Political Campaigns.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
