The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs recently released a handbook outlining best practices for using hashtags. For those not familiar with the term “hashtag,” it is a word or phrase in a Twitter post marked with the “#” symbol to denote messages of a particular topic.
Hashtag Standards for Emergencies encourages the standardization of social media hashtags during crisis situations to help integrate big-crisis data into emergency response.
The report concludes that Twitter has “the potential to supplement traditional information gathering and response reporting during large-scale emergencies.”
