The most popular hashtags

Twitter users showed their support of women this March by making #InternationalWomensDay the most used hashtag on a given day, with 9 757 uses. This was naturally trending the most on March 8th, the day of which the hashtag derives itself from.

The second and third most popular hashtags this March were #jakesjourney and #Budget2016. The jake’s journey hashtag is in reference to the sad passing of young 14 year-old Jake Elphick-Cox, after losing his fight with cancer. The hashtag began trending, in no small part due to Louis Tomlinson tweeting about it, and quickly exploded on Twitter as people rallied in support of Jake’s family. The budget 2016 hashtag was referencing the British parliament’s announcement of the budget for the upcoming year, and the ramifications and controversies that come along with it.
