If ever proof were needed of the huge, if slightly worrying, influence which social media has on some people’s lives nowadays, then here it is!
A Twitter-loving couple have taken to Facebook (where else!) to announce that they have named their brand new daughter Hashtag.
Amazingly, this isn’t the first baby whose name has been taken from the social media field.
In February last year an Egyptian man named his daughter Facebook in celebration of the January 25 revolution in that country.
The social media platform, together with Twitter, was widely praised by Egyptians for their ability to mobilise protesters and oust dictator Hosni Mubarak from power.
So…what other social media names could we give children? Google +, Pinterest, Twitter, or LinkedIn perhaps?
