Once upon a time, there was something called a label. Labels were useful to classify stuff, but they were boring because when you wanted to label something, you could only use the ones from a predefined set, or have to deal with the whole anxiety of deciding if the stuff at hand deserved a new label category. One day somebody asked: “what if I could just write whatever I want after the symbol # and it instantly generates that label in case it doesn’t exist?”. Enter the Hashtag. #afterthat #people #didntwant #towrite #anyotherway #anymore #yolo
