We got to see something special on Twitter when India was celebrating its win against Pakistan in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 match held on Sunday.
The hashtag in Hindi took Twitter by storm and really helped hype up the victory celebrations. The move was also a great way for the social network to announce support for hashtags in Indian languages.
“We’re excited to announce we’ve rolled out hashtags, not just in Hindi, but also in all Devanagari script based languages: Marathi, Sanskrit and even Nepali, as well as Bengali, Assamese, Punjabi, Gujarati, Oriya, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada,” the company said in an official blog post.
Indians already seem to be warming up to the new feature, with two other hashtags in Indian languages trending on the social network over the past week.
