How to Kill Conference Hashtag Spam

I saw a tweet the other morning from Jeff Gothelf, who was expressing disappointment from hashtag spam occurring at UX Camp CPH. I sympathized with him and his fellow conference attendees. As speaker, I know how annoying this can be.

Here’s how I cut out (most) of the spambots when following a hashtag at a conference.

Go to Twitter’s Advanced Search. Search for the hashtag, but be sure to include the location of where the conference is taking place. Save the search, so you can easily return to it.

This will greatly reduce what you see from the spambots. It’s not a perfect solution, but it will help you enjoy Twitter more during a conference.

You can learn the basics on hashtags here.
