Do you know what your Ramadan tweets are missing? Hashflags. And now you can use them in your tweets to celebrate Ramadan on Twitter.
Last week, Twitter shared that last year during this time, people sent more than 74.2 million Tweets about Ramadan from around the world.
It’s super easy. Type the hashtag (#) immediately in front of the words “Ramadan” or “Eid” in Arabic or English and a special little hashflag of a blue crescent moon or Eid icon will show up.
Twitter also partnered with @AlArabiya so that Muslims can find out what time each day that they can break fast. Simply tweet @AlArabiya with the hashtag #iftar followed by the name of your city with a # immediately in front (such as #Riyadh) and @AlArabiya will tweet you the correct iftar time.
Twitter has some great ways to celebrate holidays through their platform. Can you come up with any other ideas to integrate the Islamic holiday with Twitter?
