X is planning to roll out Pinned Hashtags for usage with Communities to help members stay on top of things. By letting admins pin hashtags on their communities, X is giving them the ability to remind users of what’s trending. Currently, hashtags in communities are based on the trending topics among members and admins have little control over the hashtags users see.
To keep the community’s attention locked on a particular topic, admins have to keep bringing back the hashtag. This is because new hashtags are created on trending topics and tend to push older hashtags down the drain. So, community admins can find themselves struggling to keep up with the influx of hashtags bombarding their members.
Currently, the ability to pin hashtags was spotted within the codes of the latest version of the X app. While these codes exist, the feature itself is not available for usage within the app. Possibly, the feature is currently under testing within some communities.
Community admins will soon have access to the Pinned Hashtag feature for usage
The folks at Android Authority were able to find some strings of codes within the new X app update. These strings cleared and made mention of the Pinned Hashtag feature for communities. While these strings exist in the new app update, the feature is nowhere to be found.
About two years ago, Twitter launched a Community feature for people who share similar ideas on a particular topic. Since the roll-out of this feature, lots of Communities on various topics of interest have been formed on the platform. From technology, fashion, sports, politics, and many other topics of interest, there are communities for all.
Even after Elon Musk took over the platform, communities still stood strong. Now under new management, communities are getting more important features on X. An example of the important new feature coming to communities is the new Pinned Hashtag feature.
Already communities on X have a hashtag feature that became available last year. With hashtags, members of the community can share various topics with other members. Now, X is preparing to let admins pin hashtags, so users can keep them in mind while going through the community posts.
For now, this feature isn’t available for usage, but it might roll out in the coming weeks. There’s no news from X on when the feature will become available for usage. But once available, admins will start putting it to use and members of communities will start noticing its usage.
