Trends and insights

Using seasonal hashtags and keywords is a simple way to expand your reach, and tap into relevant conversations as they happen on Twitter. To help you create impactful Tweets, we’ve collected the top keywords and hashtags to help your business have a #HappyValentinesDay.


While an event hashtag like #valentinesday will be predictable, others like #candyheartrejects may start trending in the moment. Use these hashtags for Tweet inspiration, and keep an eye on the trends section on Twitter to identify new hashtags that are being talked about. 

#bemine, #bemyvalentine, #candyhearts, #galentinesday, #hugsandkisses, #secretadmirer, #SinglesDay, #sweetheart, #thatslove, #valentine, #valentines, #valentinesday2017, #whoneedsavalentine, #willyoubemyvalentine

Pro tip: Although it may be tempting to add a lot of hashtags to your Tweets, we recommend using no more than three hashtags per Tweet.


Understanding what keywords people are using will help you think of Tweet topics and craft relevant content. 

Popular topics people are Tweeting about: love, chocolate, singles, date night, flowers, romance, bouquets, roses, date night, gift ideas 

If you're looking to increase your reach even further, try featuring your top-performing Tweets in a Twitter Ads campaign with keyword targeting. Targeting words and phrases people recently Tweeted or searched for on Twitter allows you to reach them when your business is most relevant.

For example, a flower delivery company could reach people looking for Valentine's gifts by targeting keywords and phrases such as "flower delivery," "what to give my Valentine," or "gifts for my girlfriend."

Pro tip: While it's important to incorporate popular topics into your content strategy, focus on creating content that’s relevant to your target audience and authentic to your business.
