Question:How can we get hashtags on research notes so they are found on Twitter?

If research notes auto-post, what is the best way to get them discovered? Should people embed hashtags in the title of the research note?

I like this idea. We're soon going to be tweaking the auto-tweet function. We use IFTTT.com -- any suggestions? We currently use this recipe:

This Trigger fires every time a new item is added to the feed you specify.

## Post a tweet

This Action will post a new tweet to your Twitter account. NOTE: Please adhere to Twitter’s Rules and Terms of Service.

So I think that means people would have to embed their hashtags in the title of their post like: Replication of Hydrogen Sulfide Detection #airquality #pollution. I'm going to try an experiment with my next post.
