#hashtag.

First off what is a hashtag? Well accroding to Wikipedia…

“A hashtag is a word or a phrase prefixed with the symbol #,a form of metadata tag. Short messages on microblogging social networking services such as Twitter, Tout, identi.ca, Tumblr, Instagram, or Google+ may be tagged by including one or more with multiple words concatenated, e.g.:#Wikipedia is an #encyclopedia. Hashtags provide a means of grouping such messages, since one can search for the hashtag and get the set of messages that contain it.”

The best part about a hashtag is that anyone can create one! Its as simple as placing the # symobl infront of the word or phrase you want to make a hashtag – and voila! You have created a hashtag.
