Stemming from Colby's Tweet, what is the correct syntax for a hashtag? Is there one?
In addition, Edward Jiang brought up their usefulness,
"Hashtags are a broken form of linking topics. It's going to be a relic of Web 2.0. The future will be more fluid."
Do you agree?
To kick it off, hashtags are far from a broken way of linking topics. They're a standard for linking topics and also a great example of timeless communication through what is truly an ancient symbol. It's really easy to hate hashtags because of the way lots of people use them, it's simply the easiest stance to have especially on the web. But looking at the long term benefits or archiving and how the web works, if we really want a #freeandopen internet, be pro-hashtag!
