I find it strange that the official Ministry of Education (@MOEsg) Twitter account is using the #sgedu hashtag. While the #sgedu hashtag has a much larger following, it is widely used for satirical tweets. Take a look at my Tweetdeck screen shot of #edsg and #sgedu side by side.
I have sent a tweet to @MOEsg but sadly it has been ignored.
I’m not trying to advocate using #edsg but it seems @MOEsg is missing the point. What do you think?
Update: @MOEsg has started to use both hashtags together in a recent tweet.
Best of both worlds?
