Popular hashtags

Twitter hashtag#openstreetmap / Twitter hashtag#osm 
Unfortunately we never settled on one or the other, but note that the longer form is less ambiguous. #osm picks up various other noise. Also just searching for the word "OpenStreetMap" works well
Twitter hashtag#switch2osm 
To promote the idea of switching from Google to OSM. See Switch2osm for more information.
Twitter hashtag#hotosm 
Everything that has to do with the Humanitarian OSM Team.
