Hashtag Wars on Twitter #Ruinamagazine

Every now and again Twitter lights up with hashtag wars. It means when someone starts a challenge and others take it up. Like today for instance. The hashtag war started by a user @midnight, Chris Hardwick of Talking Dead’s account, was #ruinamagazine. And twitter users did their very best to do that, making for some very funny titles and magazine covers.

From, “The New Yorker But Written By People Who Play Hashtag Wars,” to “Reader’s Indigestion,” and then there is “Irrational Geographic.” Or how about “Thyme Magazine?” Instead of Food and Wine you could read “Fool and Whine.” Or how about the good old fashioned “Prayboy?” For the more dignified among us there is “Better Gnomes in Gardens.”

If you need visuals, well go no further.
