What is a #Hashtag?

The Twitter World uses “#” signs in front of “keywords”. For example: for the past few Saturdays, people have been regressing to the time of Chikadees, Debbie Gibson and Big Bang sa Alabang through #SENTISABADO. Last night, I flooded the Twitter feed by giving wise words to my teenage self through #tweetyour16oldself. And I almost everyday share my emo juice via #theEXfiles. These so called # groups are called “Hashtags“.

A Hashtag by definition is used to create real time track records of creating groups on Twitter. Placing the # sign in front of keywords or targeted groups, makes it easier to track all conversations in the twitter timeline via search.

Now that you know what a Hashtags is, you are ready for the next step…

Knowing what is HASHTAG RADIO.

Program Manager Marga Deona shares, “Hashtag Radio is a talk show that caters to the emerging market of technology enthusiasts. The program will kick off with the lowdown on the week that was and what to look forward to. In general, it’ll be a “what’s hot and what’s not” program, but with a twist. There will be guest experts every episode, each of them deliberately chosen based on their topic specialty. Apart from tech news and latest internet trends, we will have topics on pop culture, art, and music worth geeking over.”

It’s target break is this Saturday, 4-5pm on DZRJ 810 kHz.

Tweeps to host #hashtag Radio are:

Chuckie Dreyfus: The poster child of the 80s, audio engineer Chuck Dreyfus dreams in stereo.

Jeff Tagle: A human resources and training practitioner who has been on the Internet for 13 years and can give you the lowdown on any sport.

Lawrence Libo-on: Founder of the Philippine Opensource Network and consultant to the CICT.

Isa Silva: The Neutralizer. Art teacher by day, freelancer by night, this self proclaimed technology dumdum will make sure that technology jargon won’t get too technical and confusing for the non-geek listener.
