Environmental History Twitter Hashtags?

Do you use twitter?  I will admit my "twitter game" is very weak. I use it mainly to follow opinions, as opposed to voicing my own.There was a very interesting episode on The Way of Improvement Leads Home podcast about "twitterstorians." You can access this through the links tab at the H-Environment home page. In the introduction to the podcast, host John Fea rattled off a couple of hashtags related to history that he routinely checks.
