INFOGRAPHIC: The History of The #HASHTAG

Today marks 10 years after the #hashtag first appeared on Twitter; which if you grew up in the age of social media, the term needn't any explanation. But for the non social folks out there: a hashtag is mainly used on social media - denoted by the hash character "#" in front of a word or non-spaced phrase, either in the main text of a message or at the end.

While it seems that the history of the hashtag began with Twitter, it actually started much earlier – more like in the 12th century.
