#Inspirate: Reply All At Your Own Risk
Better known as the hashtag (referred to formerly as the number symbol until Twitter decided otherwise); this symbol is a portmanteau (combination of word and sound silly!) of two words: hash (no, not what you’re thinking) mark (the actual symbol) and tag (a way of marking something as belonging to a specific category).
For usage directions::
Do yourself a favour and log onto any social media platform (worth its while) and you’ll realise how this symbol is used to aggregate all similar content/information on a subject via the hitherto innocent # symbol.
1) Archaic form of the word inspire
2) Grammatically incorrect translation of the French word inspirer – the actual translation reads to inspire
#Inspirate ~ a fortnightly series of sometimes motivational posters designed to bring workplaces, marketing meetings and water-cooler discussions alive again!
Whether you work, co-work or frankly just don’t give a damn, consider yourself hereby invited to a space wherein YOU (that makes two of us) get to re-discover the English language from the perspective of a (supposedly) professional, working environment.
And yes, we are speaking to all you regular 9 to 5 wrecks, creative silo specialists and those lucky few, who get to work from home. Time to get lol-ing and pointing fingers/social media tags at all that you identify with here.
