    Good list -(although in the UK people tend to use #buylocal).

    But what the heck does #spdc stand for? I have been an active user of twitter for over 7 years and have never, ever seen this hashtag used by any of the 4000+ people I follow or in any of their RTs.

    Also – you show the hashtag #Start-up – but this would not work (hashtags don’t use hyphens) – either use #startup or #startups, like most people – or use an under-score to separate the words #Start_Up.


    PS: I checked on Wikipedia – SPDC can stand for
    Self-Protecting Digital Content
    Shell Petroleum Development Company
    State Peace and Development Council
    Spontaneous parametric down-conversion
    Social Policy and Development Centre
    Steorn Private Developers Club
    Scholarship Programme for Diaspora Children
    Sun Protective Designer Clothing

    There are a further 60+ possible definitions here http://www.acronymattic.com/SPDC.html

    Top tip – avoid abbreviations in hashtags (they confuse and look spammy)
