Hashtag...what?

hash·tag
ˈhaSHtag/
noun
  1. 1.
    (on social media sites such as Twitter) a word or phrase preceded by a hash or pound sign (#) and used to identify messages on a specific topic.
    "spammers often broadcast tweets with popular hashtags even if the tweet has nothing to do with them"

So this is the definition of hashtag I found online.

Who invented this?
And Why?

I do not know the answer to either of those questions 
But I do know that it has become a mainstay in the social interactions of teens everywhere.

They even SAY hashtag before they say something they want others to understand is important.

So here goes....

HASHTAG. I. Hate. Winter.

Okay,  Now what?
