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.

#cn #u #c #how #irritating #it #is??!!
