    In the meantime (immediately), you could use:

    • #star-wars 
    • #star_wars

    That's what I'm doing, just a bit unnatural and have to remember the convention if I ever search for them :)

    But a search for either "star" or "wars" would find it. So you don't have to remember the exact phrase.

    To do this I've just capitalized the first letter in each word.  I do this in all apps/websites that use tags.

    Ex: #StarWars #SomethingALittleLonger

    Same as James, I use #camelCase for two-word tags, and it seems to be the natural syntax for tags for me.

    The only difference being —as I never use more than two words in a tag—

    I use #upperCase for the first letter of the second word.

    The first letter is always #lowerCase, and that applies for one-word and two-word tags

    In this case, it would be:   #starWars  #webDesign  #workLog  #toDo  #latinAmerica  #mentalModels  #etcetera

    I do this in all platforms that use tags, to be consistent; as most of them don't allow spaces or special characters.

    Still the only way?

    Is there a hidden character that I could use to include 2 words in the same tag? Right now I use #hi-again or #hi_again, but when i copy paste the text to official mails etc. it stands out (# is bad enough xD)

    Hi @kristian,

    This is not on the way :-( 

    We don't have plans to have multi-word tags separated by a space. Would you be able to show an app that does that?

    You could have multi-word links, but that's another dynamic

    No problem :) I have no other app example. I guess I had hoped there's was a unicode character/smiley/something that would not register as a "space", but visually be seen as such :)
    It's by no means a necessary feature :)
