Many of the tweets were hilarious. Within a few minutes I'd favourited half a dozen, viewed lots of profiles, and visited the web sites of Twitter users from all over the world to learn more about them.
This is a hashtag that is very unlikely to become a global trending topic because it involves social satire and marginalised groups, such as racial minorities, gay people, and women, so much of the majority is unlikely to find it in its timelines or consider it funny unless a celebrity of sufficient standing participates, at which point it may become overrun with idiots. (You know it's true.)
Therefore I've decided to preserve some of my favourites here before they drift backwards into the timeline void. If you enjoy them check out their authors or participate next time the hashtag gains momentum.
