How to Use Hashtags

Hashtags "#tag" help organize your posts and let others tap into the same issues on social media. On Twitter, a general rule of thumb is to use one or two hashtags in one post. The Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Awareness Campaign will review posts including #CO4Kids daily and re-tweet and share many posts using this tag. Below find list of other great hashtags to use throughout the month of April and beyond!

  • When talking about kids & families - #CO4KIDS – Use this hashtag to support the prevention of child abuse and neglect, promotion of safe and stable families and raising awareness for the statewide hotline, 1-844-CO4-KIDS (1-844-264-5437). We encourage you to use this hashtag a lot!
  • When having advocacy conversations - #COKids
