I am implementing _Semantics field in the Solr index

<fieldNames hint="raw:AddFieldByFieldName">
   <field fieldName="customtags"  returnType="text" />
   <field fieldName="customtags"> RET.Web.Areas.LLRET.Compute.CustomTags,RET.Web</field>

 public class CustomTags : IComputedIndexField
        public virtual ID TagsSelector { get; set; }

        public object ComputeFieldValue(IIndexable indexable)
            var indexableItem = indexable as SitecoreIndexableItem;

            return indexableItem == null || TagsSelector.IsNull ? null : indexableItem.Item.GetMultiListValues(TagsSelector).Select(tag => tag.Name).ToList();

        public string FieldName { get; set; }
        public string ReturnType { get; set; }
    public static class HelperMethods
        public static IEnumerable<Item> GetMultiListValues(this Item item, ID fieldId)
            return (new MultilistField(item.Fields[fieldId])).GetItems();

What should be the return type for the customtags

Should it be Text or String or StringCollection

Is this a correct way of implementing the _Semantics tagging into solr

Any help or suggestion would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance
