Prominent Democratic consultant Kevin Cate announced today he is going cold-turkey on using the #Sayfie hashtag.
“I’ve been asked why I don’t hashtag #sayfie. It’s pretty much the same reason I don’t hashtag #nbcpolitics or similar promotional hashtags – I don’t see much value.
… For me, the off chance of a tweet appearing at the bottom of the Sayfie Review ticker simply isn’t worth the expense – 7 characters.”
Like any good friend, I am going to help Kevin as he navigates this withdrawal. I’m joining him on avoiding the #Sayfie hashtag, although I doubt the hashtag’s namesake will notice.
Justin kicked me off his Twitter Ticker a long time ago.
