Twitter 'Hashtag Hours' for Crafty Small Businesses

Social Media has been vital for me in starting my business (Crafty You Crafty Me). The opportunity it provides to meet, chat and network with other business owners, particularly during covid with all the restrictions, has been crucial.


There are a number of fantastic 'hashtag hours' on Twitter to meet likeminded people, share business ideas and collaborate. Particularly when I first started up, I found it difficult to keep track of all of the networking and promoting opportunities across the week, so to help others this blog captures many of them. If you are aware of more or believe that any of the #'s captured are out of date please leave a comment at the bottom of the page and I'll amend.
