It also allows embedding of videos and photos within the micro-blog posts, which almost always are referred to as Tweets.
Like our wiki pages, tweets can be "Tagged", but are dubbed Hashtags, because there is tic-tac-toe or Hash sign in front of the series of letters or numbers being used as a tag.
During Oakland City Council Meetings, people usually include the #oakmtg hashtag when tweeting about the meeting. Sometimes when things get really fun, #oakmtg hashtag trends nationally! (The dates when it's trended nationally are listed on the #oakmtg entry.) Civic engagement is fun!
Oakland Wiki is on twitter with the easy to remember username of @OaklandWiki.
