Parents take social media to new level by naming their baby daughter Hashtag

The Drum knows that there are people in the world who live, sleep and breathe social media (we’re amongst them!) but one set of parents has taken it to a whole new level by calling their baby Hashtag.

Announced in a tweet, the proud mother posted ‘Hashtag Jameson was born at 10 oclock last nite. She weys 8pounds and i luv her so much!!!!!!’ [sic]

A comment in reply to the post says ‘Aww babes you finally had your tweetybird.’

You may think this story is, without a doubt, fake, but there are already children in the world named Like (chosen by an Israeli couple) and Facebook (chosen by a man in Egypt to celebrate the role the social media site had in inspiring the revolution).

That's not a Tweet, it's a Facebook post.

takes it to whole new level of fucking retardness. Society today thinks it's more intelligent and sophisticated because everyone's got their fucking ipods and fucking smartphones, but the reality is we are becoming a nation of fucking immature morons.

The zombie apocalypse is already here. They're just slower than we expected, slightly less smelly and carrying smartphones.
