I was hoping for something shorter, but #LettersAboutLiterature  has been used quite a bit so I guess that is what we are using.

To echo Andrea, #LettersAboutLiterature is what we’ve used in Virginia as well. It works great and gets plenty of RTs and shares since people understand its meaning immediately. We’d like to stick with it for continuity’s sake, if others feel similarly. 

 

Best,

Sarah

I know shorter is generally preferable, but we’ve used #lettersaboutliterature for years here in Maryland. A quick scroll through Twitter shows that #lettersaboutliterature has been used all the way back to 2011 (not just in MD but in posts from all over). Something to be said for continuity. Since the hashtag is long, we work it into our Tweets/Facebook posts as part of a sentence rather than as an add on at the end.

Rebekah (Texas) and I were talking about a hashtag we could all use for tweeting about LAL this year and I want to propose #lalc4b

Just #lal brings up a lot of stuff about the LA Lakers which seems incompatible with our project.

Has anyone already started to use something else?
