  • @philshem : I'm torn on closing this as a duplicate, as they might want to search by keyword rather than solely by hashtag.

  • @Joe hashtags are just keywords that are clickable. With the API-search there is no difference (although hashtags come back as a structured list, in addition to being in text).

  • @philshem : the problem is that the other question would allow an answer to be a service that only indexed on hashtags ... whereas this question might require free-text searching for terms that haven't been indexed in advance.
