Hashing it Out

Simple Internet Indexing

Cures Clutter

I’ve been playing with hashtags since at least 2012, when I first blogged about the subject and shared some of my favorite personal hashtags.  I don’t think Twitter nvented the hashtag, but starting in 2009, they certainly fostered the trend.  In any case, both the inventor and the popularizers have my thanks and praise.

Hashtags are really coming into their own with journalists and social justice warriors worldwide.  They’re helpful as advertising hooks to publicize and comment on specific events, both non-profit and commercial.  There’s even a new word that’s been invented. “Hashtivism” is the noun that describes people who use hashtags in promoting their favored causes online, an activity that is now referred to as hacktivism.  Here’s a bit of my tongue-in-cheek hacktivism:

Enhanced Recriminations

Here is the latest in my #timremix series. H/T to Eddie Grant for the lyrical inspiration.
Copy, share or forward to every crazy uncle who forwards you a Benghazi email or mentions Obama as the cause for Ebola. Gently remind them that we will never be able to convict Obama for injecting Ebola into Texas without a proper court of justice!.  Do it for the sake of our children. There’s always a possibility that they might yet get to live in the kind of free society most of us grew up in.  Let’s all pitch in and help “enhance” their chances.

We Don’t Torture, We Enhance

Conspiracy to Commit War Crimes

The battle wasn’t over when the “Mission was Accomplished”. There is still a hugely important mission that needs to be completed. Support the troops, and the rule of law they thought they were fighting for. Purge the war prostitutes and fill those seats with citizens who represent law and order as it was constitutionally enshrined. #finishthemission

Enjoy.
