With the help of a site such as hashtagify.me you can also find popular related tags to the one you’re already following.

So, for instance, typing in #bigdata also nets the often used tags #analytics, #IoT, #InternetofThings, #cloud, #MachineLearning, #M2M, #tech and #Hadoop

Or, trying #cloudcomputing brings up #cloud, #BigData, #DevOps, #IT, #IoT, #SaaS and more.

Of course, armed with all of this information, you still only have 140 characters, so don’t go overboard. Don’t know what we mean by that? Check out Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake’s #hashtag dialogue.
