Did you know hashtags began in 2007?
“The first hashtag was introduced in August 2007 by Chris Messina, an open source and open standards advocate, as a means to identify a certain group (#BarCamp). Messina hoped to create a way for a group of individuals to participate in an online chat and view what others are sharing on a particular topic. He quipped, ‘I’m more interested in simply having a better eavesdropping experience on Twitter.’”
And the world would never be the same…
