You all know #hastags which allow us to tag our toots and group them on a search page.
I propose that we start using %hashtags as negative hashtags for when we need to express our internal negativity.
They're not searchable like normal hashtags and with this simple filter : (^|\W)%\w+ people who don't want to see negativity on their timeline because it makes them feel bad can easily hide it.
That's what I'll be using from now on.
@Alda Isn't stuff like this exactly why we have tws and readmores.. you can just tag as neg..
@Pasty Seeing the « neg » CW sometimes makes people go negative too. And then you get a negativestorm on your TL.
Since « neg » cannot be easily filtered, I just push for the use of %neg (or %whateveryoulikereally) instead.
@Alda Why not %hashtag% ?
Home sweet home.
