What if ...

Misuse or abuse of your tag

Honest misunderstanding

Disagreement about what tag means, "Bashtags", #McDStories, #AskJPM

Spam, Porn, Advertising, Marketers

Trolls, People with an axe to grind, People trying to make your conversation fit their (nefarious) purposes, People who are just nasty and rude because they want attention

Trending? Hijacked!

Plan in advance., Do you want a backup hashtag?, Do you want a trending conversation?

Have a public webpage with the plan

Share the plan if or when necessary

Ask everyone using tag legitimately to "block" or "block as spam" the offending users

Be grown up

Twitter will (eventually) notice all the blocks, and clean the stream.
