Well, I think the Diamondbacks have officially learned all about hashtags and what happens when Twitter users are bored on a Wednesday afternoon.
As pointed out by HBT’s Craig Calcaterra to the vast majority of Tweeters early Wednesday afternoon, any Twitter user could have their tweets seen on the Jumbotron during the Dbacks/Phillies game simply by adding the hashtag #GoDBacks to their tweets. AUTOMATICALLY. Obviously, the fun was started by a bunch of Phillies fans (started by Mike Meech, AKA: @meechone). Let’s just say that people got creative.
Here are a few of my favorites:
There are about a zillion more, many of which are hysterical yet maybe not appropriate for this site. Just search the #GoDBacks hashtag for yourself!
Now, how many of these actually made it up on the big screen before the Diamondbacks media people realized what was going on, I don’t know. But I like to think a few of them snuck their way up there before the filtering started.
That poor, poor intern…
