What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 128 Stack Exchange communities.

Stack Exchange sites have nifty Twitter accounts, eg @StackMath and @StackWordpress where upvoted questions get a tweet.

The tweet contains the post title, a link to the question, and a hashtag based on the most popular tag on the question.

The accounts, and therefore the questions, would get better exposure if there was an additional site specific hashtag. For example, more people would see the @StackWordpress tweets if they also included the #WordPress hashtag, which would probably lead to community growth.

This wouldn't make sense for all sites (eg, I doubt SO would benefit from it), but I think that many (most?) of the the 2.0 sites benefit from this.

So, I am requesting that site communities get to

  • vote (via their Metas) on whether they want a specific hashtag
  • vote for what that hashtag should be

Great idea. I wonder what the Meta community would vote its hashtag to be? :) –  Bill the Lizard Mar 12 at 17:29
