Hashtagging Twitter Feeds

As many of us use now twitterfeed by Mario Menti or Twitter Tools by Alex King, I think it makes sense to start applying some standard hashtags based on the feed type to make searching and filtering easier. As I added my BackType feed to twitterfeed, I now get automatic tweets when I blog and make comments. BackType added Twitter integration recently, but it sucks as tweets go out just once a day or once a week, which is a lot worse than the 30-minute intervals with twitterfeed.

After a short period of brainstorming, I came up with the following hashtags:

#blogpost for blog posts
#comment for blog comments

I will ping Mario Menti and Alex King to see if this can get built into their tools to ease standardization.

What do you think? Any ideas?
