today i learned – tues 2nd apr 2019

all this time we’ve been raving about how epic hashtags are … and they aren’t even called hashtags! πŸ™ˆ

#tdil that the ‘#’ isn’t actually called a ‘hashtag’ 😱 #saywhat

honestly, my brain is actually all over the room!? 🀯 since when was the # key not called a hashtag!? like, i use them every single day and i didn’t know this! #ivebeenliedto

anyway, it’s actually called an ‘octothorpe’ πŸ™ (or an octothorp) … and, sadly, people don’t actually know why it’s called that πŸ˜‚

there are many theories that the octo part is to do with the eight points on the symbol but no one really knows where the thorpe part came from πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

peace πŸ‘πŸ» #tdil
