This directory was started by Rev. Naomi King (@revnaomiking) in collaboration with the UU Social Media Lab. UU Social Media Lab logo by Christopher Wulff (@cwulff). I have been maintaining and expanding it, including examples and hashtags submitted from other sources.
Hashtags are how we create larger conversations on Twitter and other social media platforms. No matter how many people are following your Twitter account, if you include a hashtag in a tweet, such as #BlackLivesMatter or #UUAGA, when that hashtag is clicked it will pull up every tweet on EARTH that includes that tag.
New UUA / UUSC Love Resists campaign is using hashtag #LoveResists
The Official UUA General Assembly hashtag. It is the same every year. DO NOT ADD A YEAR. That’s like locking your tweets in a closet. No one will see them.
The official UUA 2017 Presidential Election hashtag as determined by the candidates and the UU World Magazine. Though the candidates aren’t using this much. Best to follow the three candidates.
