Hi I am using echofon for mac and wonder how can I get through growl all new messages based on some hashtag. In the options it does not seem to he possible.

Antoher option would be to get new tweets from a user that tweets only about a certain hashtag, is it possible to create such user?

You need to create a so called Twitter Bot which will tweet everything containing a certain hashtag.

There is a really good tutorial on this here.
