Tags

Tags are referred to on Espra Trustmap using #hashtags, just as you would use #hastags on Twitter. The trick is that, if in doubt, keep it simple: no funny characters and no spaces. If it makes any sense, the regular expression pattern we currently use to match a tag is:

r"#[.:/+=\-\w]+"

Good tags

#elephants
#dancing
#dancing:tango
#harry-potter
#FollowFriday

Bad tags (that won't work)

#i love lucy
#h^^llo
#execute(me)

Notes

All tags are normalised to lowercase when stored in the data base. Thus #FollowFriday is equivalent to #followfriday.
