Twitter isn’t only a place to share links to your latest product launch or blog post, it’s also a terrific networking tool. While some people feel it’s too noisy because so many people are shamelessly self-promoting their wares, there’s a way to streamline conversations and weed out some of the noise and linkbait by following specific feeds via hashtags.

By following hashtags, you’re able to focus on a more specific conversation, so you’re sharing and reading material from like-minded people. This is especially useful for those with thousands of followers.

It’s important to know that most hashtags do have their share of spam. However, the best ones mostly feature links to articles and blog posts of interest to specific interests and online communities. You can even meet some people who share similar interests and career goals.

What follows is a look at some of the best hashtags for WAHMs to follow.

  1. #WAHM: Appealing to work at home moms, the #WAHM hashtag features advice, commiseration, and plenty of sharing. You might even find a few job listings.

  2. #WorkFromHome: Proceed with caution. Though you’ll find job listings and some terrific resources shared on this hashtag, you will also find your fair share of “make money online spanners.

  3. #Telecommute: Not specifically for WAHMs, this hashtag is a resource for those who work at home or wish to work at home. You’ll have to wade through some spam, but there’s good advice here too.

  9. #MomLife: This isn’t a hashtag for WAHMs, but rather a hashtag for moms. Because moms talk about more than work.

  10. #BizTips: As the hashtag indicates, this feed features tips for everyone who runs a business, or needs to get into a business-oriented mindset.

Twitter is a terrific tool for learning more about business, working from home, and parenthood. However, it’s not always easy to find content relevant to what you do. Using hashtags will help you streamline different feeds and conversations to a specific topic. Plus, it can also help you to find some good people to follow, and who among us couldn’t use more networking opportunities?
