#hashtaginsanity

Despite the contractual obligation of my age group to embrace social media, I’m not a big fan of Twitter. Immediacy is nice and all, but Twitter is too fast and too immediate for my tastes. Stop looking at your feed for five minutes and five-hundred posts pass you buy in the blink of an eye.

Despite my annoyance of twittering around, I admit the hashtag feature is nice. The feature is also #heavilyabused and #wronglyused. This article from socialmediatoday sums up my thoughts nicely. Just like any form of communication, if you do not put serious thought into the five w’s then your Tweets will fall on deaf computer monitors.
