Ever wonder what all those strange Twitter hashtags mean? Sometimes it's clear from
context, but sometimes you run across tags, like #fiddme or #lastyears, that aren't self-explanatory.
Just type the hashtag you want here, and HashtagOrigins will query twitter's search service for the 5 oldest tweets containing that hashtag. Hopefully, they will contain the explanation.
Note: extremely popular hashtags, like #amazonfail, will probably not return in any reasonable amount of time, owing to the fact that twitter's API forces me to scan all tweets, page by page, to get to the last one. This will change when the API allows it.
Note: Twitter Search only archive tags about a month back. I'm trying to see if I can get better information from hashtags.org or somewhere.©2009, Strawjackal Productions
