Ever since the “Real Housewives of ‘whatever place’” started I always said how stupid they were and that I would never watch them. Well I lied because I pretty much watch most of them religiously now. My favorite one is “The Real Housewives of New Jersey”, there is just something about those women that is entertaining to watch.
The other day I was watching this show and I saw at the top of the screen #RHONJ. I sat there the entire episode trying to figure out what they stood for. I felt like such an idiot that it took me so long to figure it out. How long did it take any my readers to figure this out? Probably not as long as it took me.
ANYWAY, ever since then I always see those hashtags at the top of the screen or even the bottom during a show. It is crazy how popular Twitter has become, it feels like it happened over night. Mainly every show on Bravo has a hashtag on the top of the screen as the show is going on.
I was so interested in how many hashtags have appeared on TV that I looked up why they are so popular. In a blog I read they list out why hashtags make sense.
- Not distracting
- Monitoring conversations is easier
- Increased chance of “trending”
I bet after reading this blog you are going to keep watching out for all the shows that have hashtags. It is pretty addicting and it is crazy to see how many shows have them. Pretty soon every show and maybe even every movie are going to have hashtags. I guess we will find out.
Thanks for reading!
(P.S. for those of you still trying to figure out what #RHONJ stands for it is “Real Housewives of New Jersey”, your welcome.)
