Twitter release ‘hashflags’ for the World Cup

Social Networking site, Twitter, has gone into full World Cup mode, as Outside of the Boot has done as well. With the popularity of football on Twitter to create conversations, Twitter has taken their opportunity to keep users on their site and possibly attract new ones. They’ve come up with smartly named ‘hashflags’ for the tournament.

As we know, any tweet usually carries a hashtag of your favourite team, allowing others to keep track of conversations. Twitter are making these conversations more attractive now. If you support, say Spain, and add the hashtag #ESP, that’s not the only thing you’re going to see. The new hashflag system will automatically add a neat little flag of the country as you can see below. These unfortunately won’t be enabled when embedded on sites, or on other apps (like Tweetdeck), not yet atleast, so it’s only view-able on the Twitter platform. Which is why we’ve had to post images below rather than embedded tweets. It certainly is going to be a colourful World Cup on Twitter.
