Posted on 26. Feb, 2011 by in news

Follow podiuminsight on Twitter Following‘s lead, here’s a list of twitter hashtag for North American road races that we, @podiuminsight and @podium_live, propose to use this year. The use of hashtag (a # in front of a keyword) is used to categorize tweets which facilitates searching and allows a reader to quickly find all other tweets in the same category by just clicking on the hashtag.

    Folsom cyclebration? #Folsom? or #FolsomCB? What about sea otter? They have some road stuff no?

    I think that using lowercase letters is far easier than upper/lower case but then I am just lazy.

    Once again Lyne, you are on the forefront! Well done.

    Good list, Lyne. I would suggest – if you are going with some capital letters – that “AToC” be used for the Amgen Tour of California.

    In the interest of saving characters, I would also suggest “qpc” for the Quiznos Pro Challenge. Even the race organization itself has started using that acronym.

    thanks for the comments. The uppercase vs lowercase is a good question – so I went back to all lowercase.

    I believe Mt Hood was #MHCC last year.. Check with the good folks at Break Away Promo if you want to be certain.

    Hey Lyne,

    Tour of America’s Dairyland? #toad

    Promises to be a great year for this series. More cash, a USA Crits stop, and chocolate milk. What more is there?

    #toad will be added to the list – imo the best hashtag for a race out there.

    Chris, I’ll check with Mt Hood folks, I couldn’t find any hashtags on their twitter feed.
