I'd like to draw your attention to the Twitter project that I have created to commemorate the 65th anniversary of the uprising of 17 June 1953 in the GDR and which might be of interest to some list members and/or their students.

Yes, #envhist is the main hashtag, as others have noted.
Our community also uses:
#climhist = climate history
#wxhistory = weather history
#aghist = agricultural history
#envhum = environmental humanities
But typically these are all used in conjunction with #envhist
#envhist is a hashtag I use and follow a lot. I find it useful in particular for North American environmental history topics and research.
Good to raise this point, I would like to know of other hashtags or popular ones on this topic.
The primary hashtag for environmental history has been #envhist since 2011. I wrote about this with Jan Oosthoek in a recent edited collection here:
Department of History
the go-to hashtag for all things environmental history is definitely #envhist. It has proven so successful that there is even some literature about it:
Kheraj, Sean and K. Jan Oosthoek.“Online Digital Communication, Networking, and Environmental History” in Methodological Challenges in Nature-Culture and Environmental History Research. Eds. Jocelyn Thorpe, Stephanie Rutherford, and L. Anders Sandberg. London: Routledge, 2017. Pgs. 233-247.
I am sure others while chime in, but I typically use #evnhist and #climhist to connect with fellow environmental historians. I have also found just following certain twitter accounts to be very helpful. Niche, for example, is a great one to follow.
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.
