10 years later: Do you know the best #hashtags for your brand?
from By Emma Fitzpatrick
If you ask anyone under the age of 13 what the symbol "#" is, they'll unanimously say "hashtag." 10 years ago this week, the pound sign was officially rebranded as the hashtag, thanks to Twitter. On Aug. 23, 2007, Chris Messina, a former Google employee, tweeted, "How do you feel about using # (pound) for groups." And that was that. Twitter made it happen, and it became a defining characteristic of the network — and really an integral part of every social network.
