I have an idea. Is there an app for that?

Dear developers, you know what would be really cool?

When you’re writing a tweet, an app should suggest hashtags for you based on the subject of your tweet, your location and the peccadilloes of your followers. Hear me out.

So here’s how it works:

I write a tweet about my bell pepper plants, which are of course magnificent. The app pops up and suggests hashtags I might want to use.

Perhaps it even gives me the hashtag #SFgreenlife because it knows I am in northern California and I’m talking about environmental action.

I just click on those I want and they go at the end of the tweet. Obviously, Twitter is only one network – I think Instagram and Pinterest users would adore this.

The good news is, the hashtag map may already exist. Services like Hashtagify.me have hashtag maps that could form the basis for the engine.

Tools like Hashtagify.me already has hashtag relationship maps.

Now it’s your turn. Would you use a tool like this if it was available? Developers, would it work? Tell me what you think.
