I’m giving a talk on my ‘Holy Trinity’ of social media tactics on Thursday, and of course Twitter is going to be one of the three I advocate.
As a result I’ve started to put together a small list of hashtags popular in the construction industry. You can see my list below.
However I realised that ‘popular’ isn’t something I can claim for this list, its just my opinion! So I thought I’d ask you. If you use twitter, what hashtags do you like to check out? Which ones have worked well, now or in the past, which ones are you always coming across? Please add your list to mine, and let me know which ones of mine you like too, so we can get a good idea of which ones I should mention.
Thanks in advance!
My (short)list of ‘popular’ Construction Industry Hashtags:
What is a hashtag? It is a way of curating tweets on twitter into one search list. If you use any word (without symbols or spaces) after a # symbol on twitter, it becomes clickable, leading to an automatically curated list of all the tweets that have used the hashtag.
Over to you – which ones do you use – which ones have I missed? And do you need a definition of any of the above?

I have at various times used #AEC, #AECSM (also home to occasional tweetchats), #Be2camp, #thinkBIM, #FM, etc
AEC of course standing for Architects, Engineers and Constructors (or Architecture, Engineering and Construction)
I’d forgotten about the #AECSM social media tweetchats.
JoAnn Locktov says
Nice list, thank you! Us tile geeks on twitter also use #mosaicmonday & #tiletuesday
Thanks for sharing these JoAnn.
Different parts of the sector will have their own favourites, I see you share images on Pinterest using these.
