A hashtag is used on social media to identify a certain topic or theme, it’s a word or phrase that starts with a hash sign (#). A hashtag has no spaces, even if it has multiple words. (#mondaymotivation).
Searching words and phrases was always available to users on twitter, but the word or phrase that they were looking for, was not always the keyword in the tweets appearing, and so Twitter bought along the hashtag in 2007. Though the hashtag didn’t really take off until 2009, which is when Twitter introduced the clickable hashtag. Later on other social sites jumped on the trend and introduced the hashtag.
