Twitter May Soon Tell Us What Hashtags Mean

You’ve seen hashtags that make sense (#staffing) and then you’ve probably seen hashtags that make little-to-no sense, such as #MCM (Man Crush Monday) or #TBT (Throw Back Thursday).

It’s OK Johnny, hashtags can be confusing. #MCM

You’re in luck if hashtags have been a source of confusion. Tech Timesand a ton of other media outlets have reported that Twitter is testing a new feature that would explain hashtags to users within the platform without the user having to turn to Google or the 20-something in the office for an explanation.

While it’s only a test, and Twitter says that “it’s rare for a day to go by when we’re not releasing at least one experiment,”(#ManicalLaugh) it’s one test we’re OK with. The outcome might be a feature that could potentially change the way Twitter users interact. #blessed
