2011 Internet Marketing Advent Calendar

This is an entry in our daily Internet Marketing Advent Calendar series. Each day your favorite marketing elves will focus on a new topic to get your internet marketing in order before the start of the new year.

I love the end of a year. I love the holidays. I love the fresh start feel of a new year. I LOVE end of the year lists! This week Techcrunch shared with us the Top Twitter Hashtags of 2011.

A hashtag (#) is a way to mark a conversation on Twitter. Then you can refer to that content later and/or connect with other people who are using the hashtag. To learn more about Hashtags you can read What is a #Hashtag or How to Use Twitter Hashtags and Search to Make your Twitter Experience More Valuable.

So without further ado, here are the top Twitter Hashtags of 2011

  1. egypt
  2. tigerblood
  3. threewordstoliveby
  4. idontunderstandwhy
  5. japan
  6. improudtosay
  7. superbowl
  8. jan25

So Twitterers were talking about Egyptian revolution, Charlie Sheen (#WINNING), memes, sports and the devastation in Japan. Actually pretty well rounded when you compare it to the top web searches of the year, which is dominated by celebrity names.

So that is what people were tweeting about this year. I found the list from 2010 and 2011 was definitely a more serious list of hashtags. Interesting how Twitter is becoming a voice for change all over the world. Wonder what we will all be tweeting about next year.
