Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake demonstrate what social media hashtags sound like in live conversation. This comedy duo has endless material for parodies from the ‘History of Rap’ to performance skits on Saturday Night Live. The Twitter hashtag is purposed for linking your tweets and Facebook comments with a live global forum that all relates to that hashtag topic.

That being said, the progression of social media hashtags has developed into side comments to a person’s thoughts like ‘#thatshowwedo’ or ‘#firstworldproblems.’ Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake thus demonstrate the digressive nature of hashtags and how abstract they sound in a live conversation. It’s to be expected that these two comedians embellish and finish each other's hashtags, but the video is highly entertaining, especially if you’re fluent in Internet lingo.
