I suggest typing the hashtag in the Twitter search or an internet search engine to review several examples of people using it. Some of these have their own culture so make sure your use of it fits.

Consider researching hashtags about the topic you are writing about as well. For example, recently I’ve been using #fem2 because many of my topics have involved writing female characters.

Any I missed? Let me know!
