   Tip # 2
Follow an event
   hashtag #
   If you’re looking for particular topics or searching for
   updates to an event, using a hashtag to search can
   bring you more accurate results. Simply enter the
   hashtag into the search box on Twitter.

   Provided you know the main hashtag - for instance,
   #London2012 – you can uncover more real-time info.

          To follow information that people post
          about an event, write the # for the event
          in the Twitter search box.

          Example: #flipclass
