Twitter Shows Its Smarts With Hilarious Hashtag

#HistoricalFacebookNames tells us who paid attention in class.


(The Root) — With no new reports of celebrities kicking fans in the face, it was a bit of a slow day on Twitter. So Twitter decided to make its own fun and passed several hours with #HistoricalFacebookNames.

The hashtag pokes fun at people’s tendency to include incredibly long, often ridiculous middle names on their Facebook accounts. These names are often made up of popular urban sayings (e.g., Roland RiseandGrind Wallace) or song lyrics (such as Sheila WokeUpInANewBuggati Smith).

What if Martin Luther King Jr., Ray Charles and Joan of Arc had Facebook pages with crazy middle names? Check out what they may look like below.
