Promoting Loughborough Internationally

Those of you that use Twitter will be familiar with the concept and use of hashtags. Recently Twitter implemented internationalized hashtags. Specifically, they introduced hashtags for Chinese, Japanese, Hangeul (Korean) and Cyrillic scripts. This presents a golden opportunity for Loughborough Twitterers to raise the international profile of Loughborough. Or to put it another way: Make the World aware of Loughborough.

All you need to do is put internationalised versions of #loughborough in your tweets. The more tweets that contain internationalised hashtags the more Loughborough will be noticed. If you would like to take part in this initiative then just copy one or more of the following hashtags and paste into your tweets.

  • #拉夫堡
  • #ラフバラ
  • #러프버러
  • #Лафборо
  • 拉夫堡 is Chinese for Loughborough
  • ラフバラ is Japanese for Loughborough
  • 러프버러 is Korean for Loughborough
  • Лафборо is Russian for Loughborough
