This symbol “#” has become all pervasive.
In the digital world across social media, everyone wants to hashtag everything.
I come across posts even on LinkedIn which have a #!
I have seen people hashtagging in conversations on whatsapp or even a simple text message.
For what joy?! Why do we want keywords to be part of a simple conversation with a #
Hunger to be noticed? Hunger to be recognised where our hashtag might get linked to some trending topic or create a trend by itself?
All pervasive and totally irrelevant I say. Why would I want to read something that has everything third word with a #!
First it was the SMS way of texting. Shortening the words till people like me could not figure out what the damn word is! And now hashtag.
