The Lincoln Twitter community just got its own hashtag: #LNK

For the uninitiated, hashtags are a community-driven way to label tweets, like tags on a Flickr page or a blog.

When someone wants to identify their tweet with a particular group, subject or geography, they type a hashtag, such as #iranelection or #harrypotter.

Now, when Lincolnites make Lincoln-related tweets on Twitter, they can type the hashtag #LNK with it.

By having a common hashtag, Lincoln tweeters are running a community news feed. This will make it much easier to find up-to-the-minute Lincoln-related info on Twitter.

For instance, this week a Lincoln tweeter asked what auto service he should take his wife's car to and added the #LNK hashtag at the end. Several Lincolnites responded, with 140-character reviews of a handful of Lincoln auto services.

The hashtag #LNK was proposed by Mr. Wilson of the Lincolnite blog, lincolnite.com/blog. And it's apparently stuck.
