How often do we use hashtags in our social media posts, and sometimes even in our everyday conversations? #Everytime, haha! Today, on the occasion of ‘Hashtag Day’ we’re celebrating this day by recognising the hashtags that are so in-trend. We not only use them on our social media accounts but also in our everyday lingos. Here are a list of a few hashtags cum slang words that we can’t get enough of along with their meanings for those who’d like to add them to their dictionary.
While ‘slay‘ in it’s true sense means to kill or to murder, the urban slang version has a more positive connotation attached to it. The generation now uses the word ‘slay‘ to describe a moment or person who has done something exceedingly well.
Until a few years ago, we would often describe the chill scenes or the party scenes that took place the night before even when we’d write about it in the caption. But now you can just post a photo or show someone a photo and just say, “#AboutLastNight“. The photo you’re showing is gonna be self-explanatory about what you did or how fun the previous night was.
You must have seen the fire emoji being used a number of times to describe how much someone likes a photo, amirite? You can also use this four-letter word as a response when you have to mention how good or amazing something is.
This term is so flexible to use and has been modified as per the occasion too. The literal meaning of the word ‘squad‘ is group or team. Now basis the occasion you can add a prefix like #groomsquad, #bridesquad, #girlsquad, #officesquad or you can even use it as is.
Quite inspired by the word ‘Queen’ this word in its full urban glory means sassy. As you even say this word, you feel the need to add that sassy twang to it too. For eg, “Yas, Kween!”, “Hell yeah, Kween!“. You get the gist, amirite?
A short-form to the word ‘family’, this word is used so often and is such an informal, casual lingo. You can use the word ‘fam‘ when writing or talking about your family or even your social media followers who are often addressed as fam.
This word initially meant ‘original gangster’. But the word ‘OG‘ then also began to be used as a quicker way of saying or writing the word ‘Original’. Over a period of time, most people have gotten so used to saying the word ‘OG’ that it almost became a common slang to use.
This term is often used to describe someone who conquers their life as a whole. This person quite confidently accomplishes despite circumstances. It isn’t only about them surviving situations but also conquering them.
‘Lit‘ is a word used to simply describe something that’s amazing or excellent. While many often use it on social media, in everyday conversations it is used to describe a product, event, or a moment, if it is, was quite awesome!
The word ‘Dope‘ has been around for a really long time now. And even today, it is often used on social media as a hashtag or even verbally as a response to describe something really cool. We have honestly lost count of the number of times we use this word by itself to describe something we find absolutely amazing.
So here were a few words that we have learned on via the social media hashtags that are so catchy. Tbh, we eventually began to add them in our everyday conversations too. Probably on an everyday basis, we use at least one of these, amirite? Do you have a favourite or go-to word from this list? Tell us about it in the comments. Also, on a side note, we hope everyone reading this is staying home and have gotten themselves vaccinated.
