The combination of Twitter’s forced brevity and its focus on topically-engineered “hashtags” provide an efficient way to aggregate snippets of information (that may also include external links) relevant to a specific subject. For instance, associating the #elearning hashtag to your tweet will include it among the vast sea of search results for E-Learning-related tweets.
