Hashflags To Make A Comeback For Brazil World Cup

Raise your hashflags for World Cup tweets

Twitter has announced the reinstatement of the 'hashflag' — a patriotic play on the idea of the traditional hashtag — in order to capture the World Cup spirit.

The hashflag proved popular on the social networking site during the 2010 World Cup which was held in South Africa. Users back in 2010 could use the hashflags in order to include and support their country's flag in their tweets.

Twitter will follow the same principle in 2014 except this time they have added a new function to the hashflags. The user, like 4 years previous, will tweet a hashtag symbol along with the 3 letter abbreviation of the country they are supporting and Twitter will include that country's flag along with the submitted tweet.

This puts a whole new meaning to the idea of waving your flag for your country!

In an addition to the flag icons on the tweet, Twitter users can also click on the flags and be taken to a page dedicated to match updates, score tables and everything World Cup related.
