The Hashtag Wars have been a part of @Midnight from the beginning. Even when before @Midnight was on air, the twitter site would have Hashtag Wars. It is probably a double edged sword as they will have to come up with new Hashtags until the end of time!
My favorite topics are food and cats. I was really inspired by #CrappySnacks, #RejectedIceCream, #SexyFoods, #DongFoods, #CheeseSongs, #RuinADessert just to name a few. Classic hashtags are RuinAX where X can be anything are really fun. Another source of hashtag awesomeness are the #MyXinYwords where x is a thing and y are the number of words. I often have problems when it is a topic I’m not familiar with such as wrestling, hip hop, wrap, or sports. My very favorite hashtag so far is #AddBlartImproveMovie. I’m sure there will be plenty of #AddXImproveY where X is something less than cool and Y is the actual cool item.
I love waking up to see see what the hashtag was from midnight. (Keep in mind I get up at 4:30am which is actually 1.5 hours after @Midnight shows on the west coast!) I just get up. My brain is still asleep. I won’t over think things. I can just look at the hashtag and come up with whatever is on my mind. It is a real challenge to think of something that is funny, original and not too far removed from the hashtag. I’ve yet to make it to the top 10 but I really enjoy the challenge. It is a great writing exercise. To see my awesome submissions, follow me on twitter @CHatMidKnight. I just started using that solely for #HashtagWars!
