This post is part of the #JuneEdTechChallenge series.
I actually don’t really follow hashtags in the way in which this challenge is thinking.
However I did create the #thisiswhattwitterwascreatedfor hashtag over ten years ago now, as a way to almost reinforce the notion that all people uses Twitter for was to post what they had for breakfast.
For breakfast this morning I had poached eggs on toasted bagel with grilled mushrooms. What did you have? #thisiswhattwitterwascreatedfor

In reality I rarely saw such tweets and still don’t. However I still regularly post what I had for breakfast and add the hashtag.
For breakfast this morning I had a toasted sourdough bagel and coffee. What did you have? #thisiswhattwitterwascreatedfor

Though I didn’t post these posts each day in June (and to be honest I didn’t post it each day on the Twitter either) except the final day, I have decided to retrospectively post blog posts about each of the challenges and back date them accordingly. There is sometimes more I want to say on the challenge then you can fit into 140 characters (well 280 these days).
