Hastags are the best!

Recently, Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake performed a skit on Saturday Night Live, satirizing the world’s overuse of hashtags in everyday life.

While the video is obviously humorous and poking fun at our hashtagging frenzy, it also allows us to reflect on the evolution of language conventions and trends.

Does the hashtag have a place in our spoken and written language, and is it here to stay?
