#️⃣Meaning and Description

The #️⃣ emoji, known as the hashtag emoji, # emoji, pound key emoji or keycap #, is shaped like a blue or black square with a hash (#) inside. The hash is made up of two horizontal lines crossed by two vertical lines resembling a tic-tac-toe board.

Literally, the #️⃣ emoji is a reference to the key on a phone, especially in contexts like "Press #️⃣ to return to the main menu." But the main use of the hashtag emoji is to mark keywords and topics in a social media post. It helps group conversations and spread information virally, and also helps consolidate discussions and posts about a particular topic.

Beyond its functional use, hashtags are sometimes used for comedic or ironic effects, even in platforms or contexts where they don't serve a technical purpose. For example, someone might text, "Just spilled coffee all over myself. #Clumsy."
