This is all great until you are the one tweeting and it comes time to remember the hashtags and/or remember to add them to your post. I also find it can take up time to add them in and in the moment you might miss other stuff - especially if you are tweeting quotes from a keynote.
Fear not! I have a hack - Keyboard shortcuts.
My friend David Carruthers loved it and decided to use the simple "ht" and said he was going to replace the long text each time he was using a hashtag consistently.
Caveat: make sure the shortcut is not something you might actually type of you run the risk that the replacement is made. Eg. If I use "EN"as a shortcut for EverNote, I run the risk of turning my name, Jen Giffen, into JEverNote GiffEverNote.
How to do text replacement on iOS
- Go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Text Replacement.
- Tap the plus sign (+) in the top right corner.
- In the Phrase field, enter the full text
- Below that, enter the shortcut you want to use.

Sorry Android users....no Android phone in the house to get the steps...I will add when I can - or let me know how in the comments.
