Anime Fans accused of hijacking English town’s twitter ‘address’

The town of Reading, England has become the latest victim of the vile and vindictive anime fans inhabiting the Twitterverse looking for unsuspecting English towns to prey upon – or so they claim.

Recently fans of the anime series Red Data Girl took to twitter using the hashtag #RDG to discuss the series. Local Reading newspaper GetReading posted a front page news article which claims that anime fans hijacked Reading’s twitter address. (Anime, Culture, Red Data Girl)

Hey Reading, UK! Since you feel that you own the hastag #rdg, I have a bridge I want to sell you in New York!

I've never heard of a hash tag getting hijacked before. Weird!

What makes me laugh is that because there is nothing good happening in Reading, THIS MADE FRONT PAGE!

*facepalm*
Seriously now. Not only is this a legitimate use of a hashtag, but hashtags actually getting hijacked is a daily occurrence. It's a huge problem with crisis events such as hurricanes and earthquakes in particular, since their hashtags quickly get spammed badly by porn spammers seeking clicks. That's about the only time a hashtag getting "hijacked" could be considered news.

Age is showing its face. This is why we have generation gaps, to keep our parents from embarrassing themselves on the internet.
