Arkansas Hashtag Directory
Back in the dark ages of Twitter (2009) @LT kick-started tweeting in Arkansas with the Arkansas Twitter Guide. The conversation has exponentially expanded and we are now seeing a meteoric rise in use of Arkansas specific hashtags. As an advocate of hashtag usage this is a great trend to keep Arkansans informed and spawn further conversation but we need a hashtag directory.
So let’s collaborate and build one.
Here is my initial list of Arkansas (1-13) hashtags in no particular order and the community suggestions begin at 14.
- #ARwx – Arkansas Weather
- #AReq – Arkansas Earthquakes
- #ARpx – Arkansas Politics
- #ARleg – Arkansas State Legislative Tweets
- #WPS – “Official” hashtag of Razorback Athletics (translation Woo Pig Sooie)
- #GoHogs – unofficial but popular hashtag of Razorback Athletics

- #LRtweetup – Little Rock Tweetup
- #UCABears – University of Central Arkansas Athletics

Submit a Hashtag: Leave a comment with a suggestion and brief description.
(subject to adjustment)
- Hashtag must be focused on an Arkansas specific region, repeating event, community, or topic
Hashtag must be used by someone other than just youAmended: Some regional/municipal hashtags may not be widely used but if they are useful to help spur or organize conversation I think I’ll include them.
- No hashtag trends or humor, yes we all love #rejectedarkansasmottos but this list is to highlight ongoing interests
PS: Look for a more official directory in the days to come. If you are interested in helping build the directory or give early feedback let me know.
