The #Bluehouse hashtag was created on August 11, 2016, and it’s been used as an umbrella for all kinds of trending topics.
There’s the #CrazyWhiteHouse hashtag that was created as a way to mock President Donald Trump.
There are the #NominateHer hashtag that’s been trending on Twitter since last month to honor Chelsea Clinton.
And there’s the hashtag #CurseTheBlueHouse that is actually a reference to the #WhiteHouse that Trump has spent months trying to keep under wraps.
All of these hashtags have been trending as of August 11 and the hashtag is still going strong.
But how did this hashtag come to be?
The origins of #BlueHouses are a bit murky.
A search of Google Trends shows that #Blue houses began trending in late June, which makes sense considering the #TrumpTrain has been blowing up the news cycle since then.
But according to Mashable, the hashtag actually began trending on August 10, 2016.
That’s more than a month before Trump officially launched his presidential campaign and it could be an indicator of how many of his supporters were trying to rally behind him.
Mashable spoke with one of the co-founders of the #bluehouse campaign, Ryan Kowalski, to find out what’s going on.
“I think it’s pretty easy to see the parallels between #Blue and #WhiteHouses.
We’re trying to push back on the #BlackHouses, #WhiteHatHouses,” Kowaloski told Mashable.
“We’re trying [to] bring attention to the issues that people care about most, like education, housing, healthcare, the environment, and the economy.
#Blue is all about the lack of representation in power.”
In the meantime, the #whitehouse hashtag has continued to trend.
Mashables sources confirm that many #White House users are trying to capitalize on the trending hashtag.
Some are even posting memes of themselves wearing #White Houses and #Blue Houses on Twitter.
“A lot of them are doing things that look pretty much like the #blackhouse, which is just taking it a step further and trying to turn it into a joke,” Kowell said.
One of the biggest trends right now is the #HateMe hashtag.
It started trending on July 1, with users tweeting out hateful, racist messages in an attempt to silence Black people.
“What we’re seeing in the last couple of days, the people who are doing the most of it are trying their hardest to turn this into a hate campaign,” Kowser said.
“They’re really taking advantage of it to try to silence people and then they end up getting people lynched.”
Mashable’s sources say there are a lot of people trying to “cure” the #blackshit hashtag.
“People have been using hashtags to try and get people to do something, and if you’re going to try that, you better get them to do it right,” KOWALSKI said.
There were also a lot more #Whitehouse hashtags being posted in the week leading up to the election.
“#WhiteHomes” and “#BlueHouse” were trending in July.
There have been other #Whitehits trending since then, but #Blue was the first to make a big splash in the weeks leading up the election and has since been trending for over a month.
The hashtag has been used by a number of people in the United States, including a few members of the Trump campaign and his administration.
Kowalo said the most popular hashtags are trending because it’s important to keep up with current events and to show the world what people care most about.
“#Bluehouse” is trending because #Bluehouses are used in a lot to show what #Whitehouses look like, and how they’re perceived, Kowatski said.
People are looking for solutions, he added.
It’s a bit strange, and that’s something we’re all trying to learn about from #Blue, but we’re not sure how to handle it.
“One of the things that’s important is to make sure that people don’t use hashtags that are too racist or too misogynistic,” Kowitz said.
#BlackHouse and #BlackHatHouse are trending as well, but the latter has a different purpose.
It comes from a hashtag used by Black people that started trending in January.
Kowskoi said the #BLACKHIT hashtag, which also includes hashtags for #black, #blackface, and #blackin, has been trending since February, but it’s only recently started gaining traction.
“It’s been getting more traction because it was a hashtag that people were responding to, and they were talking about it in real-time,” Kowe said.
A lot of it is really just people using it to vent, KOWALSKI added.
People might not want to admit to their racism, but they’re saying something that they’re not proud
