Tuesday hashtags

You could also showcase landmarks and beautiful spots in your own location with this hashtag as a way to invite others to explore the area.

#TipTuesday

This hashtag is a way for people to give helpful tips on pretty much any topic. If you’ve got some industry advice you’d like to share and it happens to be a Tuesday, then use this hashtag.

Wednesday hashtags

#WomanCrushWednesday, #WCW

This hashtag is a trend on social where people reveal who their female crushes are. It’s accompanied by a photo on Twitter or Instagram.
