Look, I get it. Hashtags are useful for Twitter. Search indexing is important for a service such as the type that Twitter provides. Just because hashtags are useful for Twitter, though, does not mean that they are useful for anything else. Ever. #hashtagsareawesome
In proof of point, all you need to do in order to observe this problem is to take a look at Facebook. People constantly hashtag (yeah, I’ll verb that noun) posts in hopes to be witty or clever. See a post about a hard day? #firstworldproblems. Bad joke? #imgoingtoexplainthejoke
Stop it. It is not funny. It has no use. It does not make sense.
If you want to be funny, write a funny post. This post-modern self-referential humor has a place — I will concede that — but it does not have a place outside of trusted professionals and Twitter. #whatnow
