#NotIntendedToBeAFactualStatement

Possibly one of the most interesting hashtags on twitter right now is one that isn’t trending. The question is – why isn’t it trending? It has celebrity endorsement, humor, and insults – the normal criteria for any twitter trend.

#thingsthatdontgotogether

For about two days now I’ve seen #thingthatdontgotogether in the right hand corner of my twitter. I couldn’t help but wonder a couple things. Who thought of hashtagging it in the first place? What are the best comments so far? And why don’t people use proper punctuation?
