Hash-TagTwitter went public the other day, #doesthisreallychangemylifeoraffectmeinanyway?   I don’t get it to be honest.  The abbreviations used for texting are bad enough but the whole hash tag thing is really just plan silly and often very annoying.  There are even guides on how to properly hashtag your event. Trying to have a conversation these days is something almost foreign.  Properly formulated sentences replaced by text speak and hash tags.  hashtag july7

I remember a time when following the every move of another was considered stalking, now it is somehow cool?  I do miss the days where what everyone else had for lunch was none of my concern. A time when things were not moving so fast that I had to have current, real-time information at the touch of my fingers. The days where a phone was just a means of communication and not a necessary appendage.  I guess it is cliche, words said by each generation to the next, I miss the good ole days.hashtags
