Yesterday I received a writing prompt that was about what I was thinking. Something I’ve spent a little bit of time lately thinking about is what my life might look like as a hashtag line.
Cody and I both have “Tweeter” (as Cody likes to call it) accounts but tweeting is not something that either of us do. We’re just followers who really have very little interest in twitter. I’ve had my account for a while- there was a time you would get coupon codes to various scrapbook designers supplies through twitter. So, I signed up and I follow a few on twitter. But, then, I found that if you follow SFA Athletics feed, you can get updates during the baseball game- which has meant that Cody and I can follow the games and see what’s happening when we can’t be there. Or, find out that Rene Moreda made Sportscenter’s Top 10 plays (awesome!). From there we’ve started following various members of the team as well- which was really fun while we were playing in the conference tournament. Now, I’ve got several summer collegiate ball clubs that I’m following as well. Twitter for us is all about keeping up with our baseball! #baseballofcourse
I can’t say that I “get” the whole Twitter thing. For me, it’s just another news source. But, at times, I really enjoy seeing some of the hashtags that are used (other times, not so much, of course.) One of the posts I read recently was about it being hot on the bus. . . and the hash tag was “#canwegetsomeAC”. It started to capture my imagination. I haven’t looked, though I know I can, but I wonder who else has used that hash tag. I can just see some folks on a vacation trip across country in the back seat that are hot- or at least that’s how some of our childhood trips were. Or perhaps someone in their office when the AC is out. That hashtag could be used by so many people. #overactiveimagination
Here’s a few other interesting ones I’ve read:
So, what common sayings like can we get some AC have you said that you that have probably been said somewhere else in the past hour? What never gets old? What are you anticipating? How would you sum up your life at this moment in a hashtag? #storyideas
I’ve not yet started thinking up hashtags as I go through my day but it sounds like a fun exercise. Cody and I will be taking a roadtrip to Tyler soon and I think I might make this a creative exercise for the trip. #cargames
