Cotags – Signature Tags For Co-Tweeting

I was just introduced to two new Twitter terms, “cotags” and “co-tweeting”. Let me first explain what “co-tweeting” means. Co-tweeting is when you have more than one person montior and respond within a single Twitter account. It looks to be derived from CoTweets.com, a Twitter platform being used by companies to engage their customers through Twitter. So the term cotags refers to the way you sign your tweets when you are co-tweeting through a shared account. The cotag standard is the caret sign followed by your first and last name intials. So my cotag would be ^BN.

Here are a few examples from several co-tweeting accounts:
