I’ve been using Twitter for some time. While I don’t normally take part in all the conversations, I do know how to get help from colleagues in the community. Hashtags have been around for several years and are now used in most main stream social networks. Hashtags are mainly used for joining people with similar interest. Hashtags do get overly used for a lot of pointless reasons as well. If you don’t believe me take a look at Jimmy Fallon & Justin Timberlake take on Hashtags (may not be suitable for all working environments). Most Twitter clients allow you to search for hashtags and have a separate feed/column within your client.
Recently the Windows Azure team started using #AzureChat to allow people to ask questions and get answers either from them or experts in the community. #AzureChat is a recent addition on Twitter for this Q&A approach. I would like to mention another that has been around for a while #SqlHelp. A lot of the experts in the SQL Server community that speak at SQL Saturday’s and the PASS Summit all watch #SqlHelp. This has proven to be one of the fastest ways to get answers, in my opinion.
If you uses twitter and have questions related to Windows Azure use #AzureChat. If you have questions related to SQL Server use #SqlHelp. If you know of other hashtags similar to #AzureChat and #SqlHelp, please let us know in the comments. If you need a Windows Azure subscription, here is the link for a free trial.
