Hashtag

Formerly called the ‘pound sign’, this symbol (#) is used on social media (primarily Instagram and Twitter), as a way to group tweets or pictures by category or phrase. The ‘#’ is placed directly in front of the text. A popular example of this on Instagram is #TBT (Throwback Thursday) where people post a picture referencing an earlier point in time (generally hideously dressed in 90’s gear).
