    What If "Seinfeld" Had Used Suggested Hashtags?

    Don't forget to tweet using the hashtag #IWasInThePool. #MustSeeTV indeed.

    Seinfeld creators Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld may have claimed that the show — which ran on NBC from 1989 to 1998 — was about nothing, but devotees of the beloved comedy know that that's not exactly true. Individual episodes centered around some facet of everyday life (from marble rye to a cologne that smells like you just came from the beach) and many of those so-called nothings have since become iconic moments in popular culture.

    While Twitter didn't exist when Seinfeld was on the air originally, imagine a world in which NBC could have guided our social media-based thoughts with those now-ubiquitous suggested hashtags that pop up every time you're watching a current television series.
