Your Social Media Guide to #ASH23
Take advantage of these helpful tips and tricks to enhance your meeting experience through social media during #ASH23.
For up-to-the-minute ASH annual meeting content, follow the Society’s official social media accounts: X (formerly Twitter), Instagram, LinkedIn, and Facebook. ASH will share important updates and reminders, attendee photos and posts, and links to content you won’t want to miss, like ASH News Daily articles and clips from ASH News TV.
If the world of X is new to you, watch the “How I Tweet” playlist on ASH’s YouTube channel to learn how to make the most of the experience. In this series, former chair of the ASH Committee on Communications, Aaron Gerds, MD, MS, discusses some key basics including: Getting Started on Twitter, How to Make the Most Out of Your Twitter Account, and Frequently Asked Questions.
Hashtags allow your audience to quickly identify the topic of your post and help other interested users become involved in the conversation! Even those who don’t follow you can still find your post if they search the hashtag you used, increasing your likelihood of being found by other colleagues and meeting attendees.
The official annual meeting hashtag is #ASH23. Include this hashtag in your posts to ensure your message doesn’t get lost in the shuffle!
A wide variety of disease- and topic-specific hashtags (listed above) can be helpful for joining conversations you are interested in and engaging colleagues who have similar interests, at the meeting and year-round. For example, be sure to use #ASHDEI to spark a dialogue with your fellow attendees after attending the innovative Health Equity Studio, or include #classicalheme when tweeting about any classical hematology sessions!
Featured Annual Meeting Hashtags
ASH will feature four meeting-specific hashtags. By using these hashtags in your posts during the annual meeting, you can be featured on the #ASH23 social media walls in San Diego and may even end up on our social media leaderboard! Each day, ASH’s social media leaderboard will rank the top 10 most prolific tweeters who include one of these four hashtags in their posts. The leaderboard will reset each day at midnight, so you will have plenty of chances to make your way to the top.
Be sure to follow each of the hashtags below before #ASH23 to catch all the pre-meeting excitement!
This is the official hashtag representing the 65th ASH Annual Meeting and Exposition! Join the conversation here to explore the science at the meeting, as well as fun opportunities to interact and network with your friends and colleagues.
Be sure to use #ASHRunWalk if you are participating in the 2023 ASH Foundation Run/Walk virtually from Sunday, December 3, through Sunday, December 17, or along the Embarcadero in San Diego on Sunday, December 10!
Back by popular demand, this hashtag can be used for expressing both your poetic creativity and enthusiasm for hematology. Use #ASHaiku to post your own meeting-specific version of this Japanese poetry style composed of three lines of five, seven, and five syllables.
Each year, the ASH annual meeting provides an opportunity to recognize those who make hematology truly great. With #ASHKudos, you can give public props to wonderful colleagues, innovative presenters, or your trusty mentor or mentee!
Top ASH Hashtag Users
ASH is again recognizing those who take their social media presence to the next level, and in turn giving you some great new accounts to follow!

This curated list is made up of the most active users of #ASH22 (last year’s meeting’s hashtag) who included their X handle when they registered for this year’s meeting (prior to the advance registration deadline).
