how do you feel about 'em?
I see them migrating away from Twitter and being used as part of everyday internet language. I've been guilty of this myself you can make a statement and just follow it with something like '#sandy' just to let people know what your talking about.
I don't mind them.
They're good for Twitter and Instagram.
i've seen crotchety people get all worked up and angry about people using them outside of twitter but haters are gonna hate
- why would anyone use them outside twitter? that's just stupidmonospaced
- why should anyone care? why do people feel the need to police that shit? it's just internet colloquial nowscarabin
- it's not though, I don't use twitter so it's just a random symbol and spaces missingmonospaced
- that being said, I just ignore it, I don't police the internet and I don't really caremonospaced
- it's still a valid form of expression even if you aren't part of the culturescarabin
- not to people who don't use twitter, thoughmonospaced
- the same could be said about hip hop slang. i don't "speak jive" but i recognize it as a form of communication whether i use it or notscarabin
- or not. but yeah, i don't do it myself or care if others do it, i just don't see the point in resisting cultural shiftsscarabin
People using them on FB cracks me up though
people that use them on Text messages
Agree 100% about dildos using them on Facebook. Either they're ignorant to the fact that they do absolutely nothing, or they never outgrew the need to constantly be ironic.
The kids love em

Hashtags are like a poor man's hypertext.
Fact: People bitching about people who use hashtags are worse than people who use hashtags. #FYI

Leave them in twitter. There's no reason for them to appear anywhere else.
- They copied twitter's intentional char limit for no reason.i_monk
- no reason or so it wouldn't get truncated? think about it.albums
- The limit is arbitrary. 140 is Twitter's "thing", there's no reason Instagram couldn't limit it to 500 or more.i_monk
- i think it's a truncating issue as instagram is an app & not a platform, they knew people would be sharing imagesalbums
you lost me at »#«
they are replacing urls and fb links beneath logos.
there was a few bad storms in our area last year -tornados that put us out of power for over a week - during that time, all our news was coming in via twitter following a local storm hashtag...
they had never really made sense to me before that, but i see the merit in them now - especially seeing them other places, fb and so on.
i consider them sort of like a subject line for conversations when they happen outside of twitter/instagram, i guess. a lead in point for public conversations.
but, there are always people that seem to not really know how to use them appropriately/effectively
