Trying to get to grips with twitter as it could be a little promo tool for my football photography.

basically im struggling to understand these hashtags.

i have just tweeted & used some hashtags such as #nluk #nln24 #nonleague etc, but when I go to search on these tags my tweets dont appear. Why? are they selected for censorship reasons?

Advise appreciated.

twitter.com/!/search/%23nluk

Are you on that list? It may filter your tweets out. Try logging out and searching for the hashtag see if you can see your tweets.

There's no filtering or censorship, as soon as you send a tweet with a hashtag it's there for all to see unless you have a locked / private account.

If you click on your profile you can see how many tweets you have made and then click on that to see them.
Are they appearing there?

Is your profile private? If so, then your tweets won't appear in searches.
