I can’t remember the last time I saw somebody using a hashtag on Twitter.

It’s like when the bees started disappearing. There’s some kind of hashtag collapse disorder.

I was just wondering how a hashtag ever personally benefited me. I mean, Twitter never sent me a check for the metadata labor.

I think generally people similar to who you follow use twitter for conversation where hashtags do not really play a role, where as businesses and brands looking for exposure are more likely to use a hashtag for discovery.

you have a different twitter experience then; I see a lot, especially around specialist topics, like football or TV watches

There were six in the tweet following yours. They seem to be pretty common from people I follow.

Gives the tweet more impressions in the context of the tag etc? I click on them (very) occasionally and view related items.

Yes, it’s like a de-metcalfization of Twitter hashtags. 😄 I actually liked and used them a lot from a discoverability standpoint in the early years of Twitter – until the social media marketers opened their floodgates…
