So I get the roots in programming and I appriciate the categorisation benefits of grouping common themes on the web together under similar topic containers, but when did it become acceptable to place a hash symbol infront of every word you write. #annoying; #pointless; #youmuppet. I guess it’s this crazy obsession with wanting to create a global trending statement. Your 2 minutes of digital fame because #youreadick!
If there is possibly one benefit to come out of this pointless bastardisation of written text, it’s that the Americans are beginning to use ‘hash’ instead of ’pound’.
