A Look Back on February

It’s always amazing how quickly it comes around writing up each month, as time seems to fly by at the moment for the Hashtag Directory.

Looking back at February a lot has happened although it was the shorted month of the year.

Let’s take a look back at February 2016:

  • A big topic this month was #SportRelief and although #SportRelief isn’t broadcasted until March, a lot of people have been doing their part for it. One of notice was Greg James’s #Gregathlon where he did 5 triathlons in 5 days. Pretty impressive if you’ve been following it and if you’ve been watching the videos where Greg looked like a broken man at the end of the week. The latest figures show that Greg and his #Gregathlon have now raised over £1,000,000 and that total is still climbing. If you would like to donate to #SportRelief you can here.
  • One which will go on into March and possibly longer is the #EUDebate if you’ve been living under rock then this is the argument/debate in whether the UK should leave the EU or stay with the EU. There are valid arguments for and against both sides of the debate. David Cameron has been spending long nights locked in conversations with the relevant bodies. The #EUDebate has been a big topic over February and you can follow it as it progresses.
  • Another topic that cropped up towards the end of February was the #FlyingScotsman journey to the National Rail Museum. The trip that took place on the 25th February 2016 saw the #FlyingScotsman go from London’s King’s Cross Station up to York. It will be kept at the National Railway Museum until the 6th March before it embarks on a tour around the country.
  • A slightly more sensitive hashtag that has been trending towards the back of February is the #AdamJohnson trial which looks to continue into March. During his trial we have seen Sunderland sack the footballer and also his Girlfriend leave him although she claims they will remain friends. Keep an eye on this case as the evidence doesn’t look good for #AdamJohnson but who knows which way this case will go.
  • Looking back at the end of February we also had the #BRITs2016 which sees the music industry celebrate their award ceremony with star-studded performances. Here are the list of winners from the #BRITs2016 in full:
