Please consider methods; by which Twitter™ can function as an accessory, of amateur radio. The following suggested plan is based upon wide acceptance of the #hamr hash tag format within Twitter, for amateur radio.
Characteristics of hash tags;
*Hash tags are alpha-numeric text strings; which may be tweeted without a specific address. Specifically; it is un-necessary to tweet in the normal @addressee format.
*Hash tag phrases can only be parsed or separated, by the under_score symbol.
*Hash tag groups can function as internet communities, which are open to most international citizens.
In view of such characteristics, the following general format for amateur radio groups is recommended. However, some address fields such as "bbb", or "ccc" may be un-necessary.
Suggested group tag names;
#hamr_usa ; General use; United States of America; all States
#hamr_usa_xx ; Any specific state in the USA; postal code "xx"
#hamr_usa_ax ; Any FCC call area "a"; where "x" (0-9)
#hamr_world ; For the global community, International use
#hamr_region ; Continent, island, country or nation; any specified "region"
#hamr_storm ; Hurricane or typhoon; any specified or named "storm";
#hamr_tsunami ; Any specified world "tsunami" event
#hamr_news ; Any breaking and specified world "news" event.
To direct others toward any newly created #hamr groups, one should post references within the following tag sites. For American issues, utilize hamr_usa as a bulletin board. Otherwise; post references on hamr_world , for issues of global importance.
To be consistent with this proposed plan, consider switching present format #ARRL and #RSGB over to;
#hamr_ARRL ; American Radio Relay League
#hamr_RSGB ; Radio Society of Great Britian
Try to use clear and generally accepted abbreviations, to keep any tag phrase elements shorter than about six characters.
