Something weird happened on Friday afternoon, around 1:30pm. I started noticing a hashtag in my @replies tab:
I then Tweeted:
Someone is pranking me. I am seeing the craziest things flying by on Twitter with hashtag #feliciadayrumors. I created DECAF?! SLANDER!
Who knew that three hours later, it would spawn a BLOG POST, get on Trending Topics on Twitter:
@maxsummers You gotta love Twitter when something like #feliciadayrumors is on the Trending Topics!
AND make someone CREATE A WEBSITE!
Really?!? How could this happen?!
Here’s the origins of the hashtag. @zombiejoe, a big Guild fan, Tweeted this to @deliciafay, a strange alter-ego I have on Twitter who is passive aggressive but mostly harmless:
@deliciafay I hear @feliciaday took a class in Native American Raindancing so that she could rain on your parade.
To which @deliciafay responded:
Felicia secretly started @twitter because its her gateway to over half a million souls. Its what she eats. #feliciadayrumors
And thus it was born. For some reason.
