Blaugust Day 23: #Hashtag10 

So here’s a cool day to mark with a little blog post, since we’re talking about social media – It’s been ten years since Twitter originally began using hashtags to allow people to search and get connected. Hashtags have become such a ubiquitous part of our culture since then.
