What will Twitter will make of a #feminismfriday hashtag?

Update 2010/06/04: Week 2!

I’ve just sent out a tweet calling for submissions. Some of you may have been around long enough to recall that Feminism Friday used to be at least a semi-regular thing around here – l decided to get all Web 3.0 with the old idea.

If you’re on Twitter, and you’ve read some terrific feminist/womanist op-ed style blogging this week (it doesn’t have to have been published this week, that’s just what’s likely to be fresh in your mind), please tweet the link and hashtag it as #feminismfriday. For an extra dollop of helpful goodness, if it’s a great Feminism 101 post, please also tag it as #FF101.

If you’re not on Twitter, please drop a link to a post that meets the general Feminism Friday guidelines in comments on this page.

No doubt, if this #feminismfriday hashtag trends highly enough, there will be some pushback from the usual suspects. I suggest treating it as an excellent opportunity to get out the anti-feminist bingo cards for your own amusement, and also to perhaps pre-emptively block some arsehats on Twitter who had previously flown under your radar.
