#hashtag Fail, search before you use

HashTag Fail Logo

Jennie Magiera (@MsMagiera) used “triple dog dare” and I thought it would be a great hashtag. I tweeted out a few times with hashtag and wondered why nobody else was picking up on it. Seemed like it would be really fun way to challenge each other to push ourselves at ISTE.

Well, it turns out the #tripledogdare is already a very unsavory hashtag that is used by many for not so nice things. Although a nice quilter seems to have made the same mistake as me.

Oh well, I learned you should always do a quick search before using a new hashtag. You should too. 🙂
