I love twitter. I’ll admit, I was late to the game here. I didn’t really see what the big deal was- well, HELLO?! Boy was I wrong! Twitter is much more fun than Facebook ever could be. Facebook is full of drama with people you actually know, twitter can be full of drama with people you DON’T know- much better! Everyone’s Grandma (including my own!) is on Facebook- twitter is much safer. Another benefit to twitter is the 130 character limit. It’s genius! No 3/4 page full posts about your crap that no one cares about, 140 characters is much more manageable.
Hash tags are great, they were designed to be a way to “sort” posts into categories, which is still their primary use, but lots of us twitter “pros” (haha) can use them in fun ways. Sometimes I wish my kids were on twitter, just so I could shortcut my directions to them into hash tags.
Here’s what the top ten “trending” hash tags would be if my peas were on twitter:
So spill it! What would be YOUR top trending hash tag with your kids??
