This week saw South Africa link arms with Kenya as we jointly hosted @AFrikkinHashtag with the tag #MoreHonestProductSlogans which really gave space for people to get creative.
And you did. With the @HashtagRoundup app helping make it all the more productive. If you’re a Hashtagger, make sure you download the app and get tagging.
