    Does it really works or mostly it's just a waste of time?

    I don't on my personal account really, but as a company or business, I would definitely it.

    It works, people search with hash tags too. I always use that.

    Using hashtag helps. Since i am into forex i use "Cashtag" and nothing beats it once it comes to targeting the real guys.

    I think hashtags are essential, but you want to make sure you posts have content, and they aren't just obvious hashtag spam. People tend to overlook those posts, even appreciate like 4 or 5 good ones in a row. Just don't make the entire tweet hashtags and it definitely increases engagement.

    Didn't use to very much, but now that I have started to try it out I have noticed a difference.
