Q. Unlock 1.0, Mission Begin Again… the governments of the day have also caught on to the hashtag culture. Comments?

 

A. When society adopts a culture, all institutions start reflecting it in their behaviour. This is how culture syncs. The purpose of hashtag is to draw attention (remember it started with Twitter, if I recall it right), organise expression and promote conversation. Governments of the day would also prefer such objectives. Hashtag is serving that instant objective.
