The Power of a Hashtag

Hashtags are somewhat of a new concept. For those who aren’t clear, a hashtag is a word or phrase preceded by a hash sign (#), used on social media websites and applications, especially Twitter, to identify messages on a specific topic. That’s what pops up when you search it on Google.

Yet in 2020, a hashtag united the world behind a common enemy of injustice and restored faith in humanity when it was so desperately needed. When the world was in a pandemic, the powers that be stood on the necks of the people. Today, on this Tuesday, you are making history by using your thumbs.

Is the future this simple? Do we just need to type out a hashtag to change the world?

Well no, sure, on social media your hashtag will stand behind a movement but more so it will ask of you reanalyse the world we live in. Sharing your voice not only adds to the power of this movement but will also empower you to make changes in your circle. Using this Hashtag today means you have raised your arm in battle and more so this should make us realise that an injustice to 1 human is an injustice to us all!
