A hashtag is a word or phrase that is written without any spaces and prefixed with a ‘#’ symbol. Like so: #example

How To Make a Tweet with 4 Images

A tweet can only be 140 characters. This is a wonderful thing. No verbose or long-winded announcements on Twitter! Because of the short nature of a tweet, a picture can really boost engagement and help your tweet to get noticed.

You can attach up to four images in any single tweet and for some tweets, this can make a great deal of sense. These 4 images will display as a preview collage in your followers’ timeline. Anyone viewing the tweet can expand it to see each photo individually.
