Can we say
‘#ThankGoodnessIt’sFriiiii-day’ … #Evening!!!!
Long, long #week this week was. You know, one of those #weeks that seems to go #On& On& On&On….
#Check! … #I’mSoOverIt … #UntilMonday
#Check! …. #I’llNeverTell
#Check! …. #YeahMe!
#Check! …. #DittoAgain – #I’llNeverTell
#You’reProbablyWondering – ‘#What’sWithAll of the #Hashtags?
#DoesSheHaveAnyIdea #HowDifficult it is to #ReadThisPost #WithAllofTheseDamnedHashtags?! #NotToMentionSlightlyAnnoying?
Actually I do. It’s distracting, confusing and downright annoying – as already pointed out. So why subject you to this #hashtag — *couldn’t resist* — cray-zay-ness?
Well, from the mouth of a usually grounded woman – ‘Do Tell’?
… and I do …
Last evening, while hanging out with some of my ‘Tweeple‘ during a Tweet Chat, the conversations were moving along in the somewhat controlled frenzy that I’ve come to find comfort with. *WOW! That is one long run-on sentence?!*
Even thought the speed of the conversations can be a bit challenging, I manage to do a decent job of keeping up. Most folk keep their tweets short and their retweets easy to track. And so was the case last night. ….. until this one tweet presented with a ton of Hashtags (#) & Mentions (@) !
Talking about being totally caught off guard and completely loss! My first question was, – ‘What is this bullsh!gg!ty here!? Quickly followed by a head-scratching – ‘holy sugar! who in the tarhill is this person responding to? – and – ‘why in the h%ll would someone post this kind of tom-foolery ?!
Do you reeeally expect someone to be able to follow this crap?! – *Now I’m shouting at my iPad – sorry Siri* … So glad no one’s around to witness this momentary breakdown….
As confused as I was with this tweet, I stayed put – but blocked all follow-up tweets from that person. What? Yes. I. Blocked. Them. One frustrating tweet was enough for me! ‘Thank You #Twitter for the ‘blocking’ feature – *a wink & a smile* is in order’
… then I gotta thinking….
… Reading this #Hashtag stuff is maaad crazy! Wonder what would happen if we were subjected to #HashtagSpeak on a regular!? I can see myself totally losing it! You? Well, you know that it didn’t take me long to find the answer to that question – oh the beauty of the internet (at least this time)
here I have it …. for your listening pleasure…
*drum roll Puh-leaze*
#HashtagSpeak…. in the flesh… .ala, Jimmy Fallon!!!
Like I said, I would totally lose it!
