Our Week In The Web: August 28, 2015

This article is more than 5 years old.

Would hashtagging our hourly shows make a difference in the online conversation that surrounds them? It's something we've wondered in the past before, and definitely something that a few of you out there are thinking about, too. So would it make a difference in our digital conversation? (Not everyone listens at the same time, not everybody can find our stream-of-consciousness live tweets, and many of you tweet past each other in the weekend light). So would you use them? No is a perfectly acceptable answer — maybe you don't even use Twitter, which is great! We just want to figure out what this would look like and if you would use it. Let us know, @OnPointRadio.
