Finalised Twitter hashtags for Election (#AE11) constituencies

Okay, a big thanks to Dee Harvey at BBCNI for her work on these. She’s tested them all now so that there should not be any broken or misleading tweets on the constituency hashtags quoted below.

If you are now scratching your heading and asking yourself ‘what’s Fealty on about now’, hashtags are a way of tagging individual ‘tweets’ that instantly transform into searchable terms.

It should enable us/you to find tweeted information/data on Twitter than relates to a given constituency (longer explanation here). It should be invaluable in helping people to share more effectively local Assembly Election (#AE11) stories, not to mention emerging data from polling stations and count centres.
