August is coming to an end and we are just 4 months away from 2022. The year has been eventful in many ways. The world, in the last few years, has come together on virtual platforms, like Twitter, Instagram, etc. to keep themselves updated. From sharing news to cheering for their favourite celebrities, people have made the most of social media, especially Twitter. Each year on August 23, the world celebrates Hashtag Day.
