What happens after the dust clears? We asked you in our latest @AFrikkinHashtag game, #AsTheDustCleared, and this is what we found…

[The Story So Far: Every Wednesday at 12 noon South African time [6am EDT] an inspired and growing number of brilliant, creative and absolutely fun people from all around the world take part in what is called a Hashtag game. @AFrikkinHashtag [say it out loud] is South Africa’s #1 Hashtag game and is always a lot of fun. The F.L.O.P. [or Fish List Of Prizeworthyness] is the collection of some of the best tweets from each week’s game and is what all seriously comedic Hashtaggers aspire to…]

This week we had Dave aka @BoneSnorkel in the co-hosting seat, which is not so much a seat as a half-deflated bean bag chair filled with leftover bubble wrap, but he didn’t seem to mind. And he was a great co-host so win-whinge. Or something.

@bonesnorkel

We decided that #WhenTheDustCleared was a tag which could go in all sorts of directions…

And so we went for it, sending out the invites:

i’m not a bit fan of Trump tags cos come on already, but i was a little nervous this could easily become one. i was pleasantly surprised though cos there weren’t quite as many as i was anticipating. Seems you all had different kinds of settled dusts on the brain.

And we definitely did some trending, although i don’t think i took down the specific stats for some reason:

But when was any of this for anything other than you guys and seeing if you made it on to this week’s F.L.O.P. list of Top Tweets or not…
