As anyone using Twitter knows, hashtags are incredibly important for a variety of reasons.
Appropriate hashtags also enable you to get your message out to your target audience. Twitter is all about maximum bang for your 140 character buck.
So with this mind I asked a few folks on Twitter for some hashtag suggestions that might encapsulate Dalton McGuinty’s mismanagement – especially concerning the gas plant seat-saver scandal which has still not been resolved since he prorogued the Legislature.
I received some terrific feedback which I’ve attempted to categorize for anyone who might like to try some of these in their #onpoli tweets.
Gas Plant Scandal:
#gasgate and #GasScam – @MikeSeager
#seatsaver – @PeggyatHome
Green Energy Waste and Mismanagement:
#Negawatts – I actually noticed Tom Adams using that word. I really think it would make a terrific hashtag for green energy waste – especially when we have to pay other jurisdictions to take our power. However it does seem to have other connotations like demand reduction so possibly it wouldn’t be appropriate. Any experts out there? It’s a bit too arcane for me.
General McGuinty Government Incompetence:
#legacyofshame – @MikeSeager
#decadeofdecline – @MikeSeager
Well I probably missed a few so please feel free to chime in here with more suggestions and/or comments.
