Twitter the National #NSCCShow

The hashtag #NSCCShow is being used for tweets about The National Sports Card Convention or "the National."

I sent tweets to quite a few card bloggers this weekend and this should build us a pretty good community for delivering, receiving, and getting the most out of this year's National in Cleveland.

If you're on Twitter and tweeting about "the National" use #NSCCShow in your tweet so others can join in the conversation. Sample tweet, "Topps just announced their promotion for the National. Check out the link to my latest blog post. #NSCCShow"

Hashtags allow both twitter users and non twitter users find conversations about different subjects. I had to use #NSCCShow because "#the National" and "#National" were already being used by different political and news groups.

  • Click the search icon in tweetdeck and type #NSCCShow.
  • This open another column (if you have less than 10 columns) and continually refreshes as long as you keep it.

Twittering with a common hashtag, #NSCCShow, will also be helpful while you're at the The National. If you have mobile alerts. You can send and receive tweets about different booth contests or special autograph guests.

You can follow me on twitter at I generally tweet more about internet and social media marketing than sports cards/memorabilia, but I will be tweeting about the #NSCCShow.
