The Twitter Hashtag Is 10 Years Old Today, Further Proof That 2007 Was The Best

Yep, way back in 2007, Twitter user @chrismessina thought the hashtag would be a good way to make groups.

how do you feel about using # (pound) for groups. As in #barcamp [msg]?

I don't actually know what bar camp is, but hey, who am I to argue with a genius?

To put it in some perspective, the most tweeted hashtag in 2007 was #noticias, the Spanish word for news, which was used around 9000 times. In 2017, the most used hashtag so far has been #BTSBBMAS (a K-pop band), which has been tweeted more than 300 million times.
