So this is new…
Instagram has given us so much already.
The ability to stalk people we don’t know on a totally unprecedented level.
Pictures of cats we aren’t really interested in, but feel obliged to pity-like anyway.
A niggling guilt we should be working out way, way, way more than we actually do.
INSTAGRAM HAS GIVEN US EVERYTHING.
And now, they’ve given us even more. Because you can now hashtag an Emoji.
But why, I hear you ask, would a person actually want to hashtag an Emoji?
Because WORDS ARE OUT, PEOPLE. Nobody can be bothered to type a tag full of boring old LETTERS anymore.
Now, if I’d like to see a picture of someone’s brunch, I don’t have to write something boring like #foodporn. I can simply
If I want to see photos of other people’s cats – and I do – I’m sorted.
If I’m looking for something raunchy to pass the time?
Hilariously, the only emoji you can’t hashtag is the eggplant.
Emoji discrimination! It isn’t the eggplant’s fault people associate it with a penis.

Or, should I say:
What emoji will you be #hashtagging?
