Massachusetts Politics Twitter Hashtags

These are the political hash tags we have observed on Twitter. For the State Senate hash tags, we have observed a pattern used for all the Senate races that are using hash tags, and expanded the hash tags for all the contested races. We haven’t observed any hash tags being used for representative races, or governor’s council races, but we’re sure they will appear as the election season gets into full swing later in the year. This is a work in progress. If you know of any important Massachusetts political hash tags not listed here, please let us know at editor@massachusetts-election-2010.com
