Unintentionally Inappropriate Twitter Hashtags

If you use Twitter, you probably use hash & tags. You know, as in "marijuana" and "labels so you don't forget what things are due to your indiscriminate marijuana usage." And on Twitter, when you take out spacing, capitalization, and punctuation from a sentence or phrase and throw an octothorpe in front, you get a #hashtag, which is used to identify a common topic or a topic that nobody else has ever possibly thought of.

But Twitter can be a dangerous place if you don't know what you're doing, especially when it comes to #hashtagging, which, again, is like really, really, lazy geotagging. So, to help you navigate these murky internet tides, I have listed some phrases that have drastically changed meanings when turned into Twitter #hashtags.

Hot as sparks.

Let me take you, Reyes.

Stocks tools, ample sandbags.

Is he a color, Ed?

You should beg, ay?

Sob, itch— you want a tissue?

I need an Al, now!

Makes hitting fun!

I would like tofu, C. K. Williams.
