It May Be Important To Plan Ahead And Choose #MyLastWordsIn5Words

January 19, 2015
Twitter is getting better at coming up with diverse Twitter games. This week saw plenty of participation in the use of #MyLastWordsIn5Words which was much more developed than most other recent Twitter games. This is because of its ability to diverge from a sample of choices. Instead of limiting the subject to movies or another category with the possibility of repeated choices, #MyLastWordsIn5Words allows for people to have some fun mixing up an unlimited number of ideas. From something silly to something more serious, people could talk about multiple categories such as incorporating a favorite music artist or a type of food they really enjoy. Because of this diversity in participation, this trend lasted for quite some time and is still continuing to show up.

There are a few examples above that demonstrate this, which is pretty common for these types of hashtags. Although #MyLastWordsIn5Words declined pretty fast, its lifespan could be an indicator that there will be more like it in the near future.
