#HashtagThatHashtag

Happy Wednesday to all! It is no secret that social networking is slowly taking over the world. I love the internet just as much as the next guy, so naturally I have succumbed to all of the social networking sites: Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, etc. I would like to particularly talk about Twitter…I don’t tweet terribly often because I hate myself every time I do, but I do on occasion because I’m a modern teenager and can’t not do it. A major part of Twitter is hashtagging. Let me tell ya, I love me some hashtagging! Anyone who knows me will confirm this as well. I don’t get too cray with hashtagging on Twitter, but I do enjoy hashtagging in real life conversations.

The technique is simple. You simply make a hashtag symbol with your fingers and either say hashtag as you say it, or just chuck up them fingers.

Real life hashtag technique

Real life hashtag technique

Here is an example: You take the last cookie in the cookie jar and your friend is upset. You thoroughly enjoyed the cookie so you say either “#SorryI’mNotSorry (note the hashtag is made from your fingers), or “Hashtag SorryI’mNotSorry.” Making the symbol while saying the second one is optional, but I like to make the symbol either way because I like to live on the edge. My favorite real life hashtags are #BetterOffWithoutYou, #NailedIt, #StressOnStressOnStress (any word can be subbed for stress, making this last one adaptable to any and every situation), plus a few others. I know this sounds ridiculous and stupid but that is mostly because it is, however it is incredibly satisfying so if you enjoy hashtagging via the interent, you should definitely give it a try! Have a wonderful rest of the week and thanks for reading! #YouDaBest :)
