Nerdy Fact: The Official Name of the #



Before it was called the hashtag, before it was known as the pound sign and before it was the number sign, # was called…

…the octothorpe! They’re everywhere these days, from Instagram to the tiny pattern on Alan’s shorts to my s’morcon (s’more + bacon) from last night (it’s a homemade marshmallow sandwiched between two graham crackers covered in chocolate with maple bacon on top!)

Anyway, yay for being a little nerdier than you were before reading this 🙂
