This morning I wanted to search some tweets about Houston Startup Weekend. Then I realized I forgot the official hashtag of the event.
I did more work to try to figure out why I could't remember the hashtag and got two discoveries.
1. Twitter hashtag search results page design
Twitter hashtag search results page doesn't display archived tweets. It's a bad design.
The first search keyword I typed is #HoustonSW and Twitter doesn't display any result. Then I typed the second search keyword #SWHouston. No result again.
So, I sent out a tweet to asked one of organizers of the event what the official hashtag is.
Later, I found the answer is #HoustonSW.
Why not display the latest tweets for visitors to recall their memories? If I can see the tweets, I can make sure the search keywords I typed in is a correct hashtag.
2. Social media rules of open brand license
Then I found several Twitter user accounts related with the event and knew the newest status about it.
I also found Houston Startup Weekend lost its Twitter account @HoustonSW used in last year. This inspired me to think about the social media rules for open brand license.
The @HoustonSW account's screen name has been changed to Houston StartupDigest. Now the organizers of the event use @SWHouston id and they use Startup Weekend HOU as screen name.
