Publicize With Hashtags
PWH is a small WordPress plugin that will automatically append hashtags to any content sent by Jetpack's Publicize module. This means that the plugin will work only if the Jetpack plugin is already installed on your Wordpress platform with the Publicize module set to active. Don't worry, tho: if any of these requirements are missing this plugin won't do anything, without breaking your blog or compromising its performance in any way.
IMPORTANT: This plugin requires Jetpack's Publicize module: read below for additional info.
As the name says, this plugin will automatically append hashtags to any content sent by Jetpack's Publicize module.

- Hashtags will be created using the post
tags, (optionally) trimming the space chars, until the maximum character length is reached (if any).
- You'll still be able to manually add custom hashtags, pre-pending or appending them to the auto-generated ones just like you always did.
- You can reorder the hashtags as you like, regardless of how they were added.
- Dupe check included, ensuring that the same hashtag won't be included multiple times - unless you manually do that.
- Automatically added hashtags won't break the 118-character limits of the social message text to keep the message length under the standard tweet + link limit.
- The above character-length threshold can be changed and/or set to infinite with ease.

Frequently Asked Questions
What if I manually insert one or more hashtags?
They will be kept as they are: the plugin won't strip out anything, it will simply add the "missing" hashtags to the Custom Message box.
What if I already inserted an hashtags identical to an existing post tag?
It won't be added again, as long as it's case-insensitive equal to the first one. The plugin will never insert a dupe hashtag on its own.
The plugin will automatically trasform your post tags to hashtags and append them to the Publicize Widget's Custom Message box. Any existing, manually inserted hashtag will be kept and/or won't be added a second time if also included as a tag.
