Twitter fans, do you share my frustration with the Twitter Hashtag selection process? Do you spend minutes (equivalent to hours in the real world) agonizing about that perfect hashtag for your tweet? And once you’ve decided and tweeted your 140 characters of pure gold, do you still wonder if you chose well? I do! I need to seek help I know, but in the meantime I’m going to do something about it.
My half-baked solution…

An Urgent Appeal to Twitter
Please get your act together re. hashtag suggestions. Possibly a widget in your resource section that pulls in WP post tags? OR -dare I say- use meta keywords? Could be the perfect comeback stage for that ole tag (although the more likely scenario will be its metamorphosis into a social graph element).
In the meantime this is an open ended post (until Twitter responds to my appeal) and will be supplemented with more categories/hashtags as I discover them, or if you tell me about them in the comments below.
If you’ve managed to get this far, read this post on hashtag tips and please re-tweet with suggested hashtags for this post #hashtags #smm #sm #twitter #in.
To help build this list out, please do feel free to add your hashtag suggestions in the comments :)
