 Hi,


Yes, you can.. I have seen some text ads using hashtags.


This is a tweet from the official adwords account explains that:-


"Yep, our Editorial policy now allows the use of hashtags in your ad text if they are used to reference a Twitter thread -Tash"

Hi there,

So meaning only if it's a #hashtag from a Twitter thread? Cause i'm doing an ad for an event and the booth number has a hashtag i.e. #1234 is that acceptable?

Try it and find out. (I'm guessing yes).
