I am sure this has been said before, I am just going to say it again and pretend it was my brilliant idea.
It is incredibly difficult to track conversations on specific legislation in Twitter, (particularly on the state level) so here is my proposed hashtag protocol.
When speaking about legislation please include the state abbreviation + bill number.
Illinois Senate Bill 1313 would look like: #ILSB1313
Arizona House Resolution 2006 would look like: #AZHCR2006
If political offices and the press started using this standard, the general public and advocacy groups would catch on – the end result would be searchable hashtags that would allow politicians and the public to follow the conversation on Twitter more efficiently.
