#Hashtags That Should Be Trending, Round 12


It's Round 12 of #Hashtags That Should Be Trending. Take a look, tweet, and enjoy!

#wedonegoofed – This would be great for large companies to use who end up getting into some social media trouble. It serves two purposes. It not only admits they made a mistake but also adds some comedy flair to the apologize to better calm the backlash waters. Untimely tweet after a national tradegy? #WEDONEGOOFED. Accidentily insuiate that a group of people is poor/stupid/crime ridden/homosexual/etc.? #WEDONEGOOFED. It's that easy Social Media Managers.

Here's a good example of when this hashtag should be used.

#wrbs (Would Rather Be Sleeping) - About 80% of my life is consumed by time that I would rather fill with sleeping. Let's see...there's work, commute to work, laying in bed, cooking dinner, sleeping, and let's not forget being awake. Doing something boring or something you'd rather not be doing, early in the morning? Use #WRBS.

 

#cooldudes – Have a pic of you and some of your homies (bros is out guys, homies is back!)? Referencing what you and your homies are doing, have done or playing on doing? Replying to someones tweet that does one of these and want to sarcastically hit them below their homie belts? Use #cooldudes!

It would seem this hashtag is already used, but not nearly enough.

#Hashtags That Should Be Trending: #SOTuesday (Shout Out Tuesday)


I'm not sure why I decided this hashtag deserved its own post but I'm guessing it has something to do with the time specificity of it. Don't hold me to that because I have no idea what I'm saying. Ever.

Please read, and as always, please tweet, pls retweet and plz favorite.

#SOTuesday-

Tuesday so often gets left out of things on Twitter and in real life. Music Monday  Hump Day. Follow Friday. Hungover Saturday. Hungover Sunday. And never forget about Throwback Thursday. Never forget.

I'm here to change this. To give Tuesday a voice. I'm here to help Tuesday become the day it was born to be.

What's great about Shout Out Tuesday? It's all encompassing of genders, races, genres, sexual orientations, feet sizes, Neil Young likers and non Neil Young likers. No one is left out from joining in on the fun.

It is not required to Shout Out to one specific handle, it can simply be a Shout Out to a certain group of people. However, if you'd like, it can be used similarly to Follow Friday. FF doesn't quite have the range of #SOTuesday which is why I predict in three months time Tuesday will be the new Friday. We can all agree this was going to happen eventually, but this hashtag will greatly expedite the process. We're skipping the early adapters stage which is so often key in trend setting.

So get tweeting  and take a look at some of my self-proclaimed best of #SOTuesday tweets from the past few weeks:

Please excuse the lack of hashtag on these, the idea was forming at this very moment. You're reliving history!

#Hashtags That Should Be Trending, Round 11


Can you believe we are at Round 11 for these? That brings us up to 55 different hashtags that should be trending. I'm fairly certain none of them have, but I'm not giving hope yet. It'll happen eventually. You can help by using them, which some people have been. Thanks to them!

 

#gamesetmatch

Great for really twisting the knife on a zinger of a tweet. Also, great for end of tennis match tweets. It works for 90% of the tweets out there. As a bonus almost all languages and cultures can understand it, since tennis is such a world-wide sport. The few many exceptions are in second and third world countries where there is very little Twitter use anyways. But  no worries, we (rich people) have better things to worry about than people reading tweets and hashtags that they don’t understand. Like helping them have access to clean water...

AAAAARRRRRRRGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHH. #gamesetmatch

 

#cuteat6butnotat26

Some things are cute when your six but not so much when you’re an adult. Examples: Peeing on a house plant. Riding the family dog. Digging a hole in the backyard and pooping in it.

The list is endless and almost exclusively consisting of body fluids/functions. Admittedly, I could be limiting the use of this hashtag. Link to your tweets that use this (or any of them) in the comments below and I’ll RT!

 

Well I think I broke a few laws searching for images of people peeing on houseplants so I'll skip the image on this one...

 

#brillant

The Brits really have something with this whole “brilliant” business. It has many uses, including: literal (Wow, you're really smart. #brillant), sarcastic (Way to get drunk and throw up on a young kid. #BRILLANT" and even figuratively.  I can’t figure out a suitable figurative scenario but I can only imagine they exist plentifully. Use liberally and without abandon. I have come to love this word thanks to the UK version of the show The Inbetweeners which is BRILLANT! Ahhhh, see. I wrote about the show being on Netflix.

BRIEFCASE WANKER!

 

#intercepted

This hashtag is inspired by a Key and Peele sketch where there is college aged Obama planning and attending a party. As he is being "all presidential" in talking about how awesome the party will be, there is a joint passed round and as it goes from one person to another he, “intercepts” it. It’s a great skit that you can watch below.  Intercepted as a hashtag is so awesome you can use it in almost any context. During the Super Bowl on February 3rd, 2013 (which happened already) would be a good jumping off point. After that, just go wild with it.

 

#letsgo

After the very exciting half-black-out during the Super Bowl this past Sunday the power was fully restored and the game was ready to start. When the head ref gave the official announcement he lastly uttered the words, “Let’s go”. In long, what he was saying was, “let’s get this shit going again so I can go hang out on Bourbon Street for one last night.” If you were unaware, the Superbowl took place in New Orleans for the 2012/2013 season. #letsgo is a very versatile hashtag. Trying to make plans with someone, #letsgo. Rooting for a team of some sort, #letsgo. If you’re really cool you can use the much more hip versions, #lego/#lesgo/#legsgo/etc.. It doesn't really matter though, because eventually they will all be trending. You wait and see.

#Hashtags That Should Be Trending, Round 10


It has been awhile since the last Hashtag That Should Be Trending. I have a list with two rounds worth of hashtags, so here are the first few.

I give you explicit written permission to use these liberally on Twitter. And to follow @20SomeAwesome.

#chillinwithbooradley – As made famous in the book, To Kill A Mockingbird, Arthur “Boo” Radley is a reclusive character that doesn’t leave his house often. So are you just hanging at home tonight? Sounds to me like you’re just chilling with Boo Radley. Not only is this informative but also shows off your literary knowledge. Which may offset the sadness of your loneliness.

Who wouldn't want to be chilling with this guy? YOU'RE A DAMN LIAR.

 

#latenightphonenotes – I can’t be the only one who has great ideas when he is trying to sleep. I have started making notes of these ideas in a note taking app on my phone. Most are awful, but there are a couple gems in there. What are some of your late night phone notes? Mention us on Twitter and use the hashtag!


taking notes on smart phone

Notes on Phone example. Sort of like “get milk” but much better and much more under the influence.

#riskytweet – Saying something damning about yourself?  Giving an opening to people (or person) that they might take but you actually don’t want them to? You know, about something sexual or just something very personal? This is what us in the biz call, a "risky tweet". Be careful out there, but if you are going to risk it, hashtag it.

You know this guy up here is tweeting. I hope he used #riskytweet.

#pooptweet – Who doesn’t like a good tweet about poop? Not cool people, that’s who. So poop tweet it up and use this awesome #pooptweet hashtag.


Update: After a quick search, #pooptweet is used quite often. So join the #pooptweet club and get it trending!

tweeting on the toilet

Tweeting on the toilet. I know that game.

#awfulnetflixmovies – Just watched an awful Netflix movie? Tweet the title and then use this hashtag! Warn the other good people of twitter about the movies they should stay away from. We have a couple reviews up of some awful Netflix movies. Like Nude Nuns with Big Guns, or Jenifer-Masters of Horror.

#tweetsIwishwerejokes - Doing something embarrassing but want to tell Twitter and essentially, potentially, and most certainly, the entire world? Deflect the humor from yourself to the tweet by telling the world (that you just hadto tell in the first place) that you already know you suck, waste your time on crap, are a loser, have a small penis, etc.
