Riding hashtags - now with edits!

Have you tested all of these #hashtags to confirm they have not been used by other countries or organizations? Will you be updating the list as you discover some like are already in use like #TorCen? Have you reviewed or considered the numbered hashtags @cka_politwit has suggested?

I've been busy with campaigning, so finding replacements has been a pretty organic process. Re: the numbers, I just find them less humanistic and intuitive than alphabetical tags.
