When you’re running an Instagram competition, it’s important to get your hashtag game on point.
You want something snappy, something catchy — maybe something with a bit of alliteration. Something that will be memorable.
This was clearly the thought process British baking company Warburtons had recently when they decided to launch a Christmas crumpet competition.
They had their celebrity — former McFly star Tom Fletcher was on board — and they had their hashtag: #crumpetcreations. They were ready to roll.
COMPETITION TIME! To celebrate Crumpet Eve by @TomFletcher, we’re giving away VIP tickets to The Christmasaurus Live Shows, plus signed books and even special packs of Giant Crumpets checked over by Tom himself. To enter: – Follow us on Instagram – Upload your best Christmassy Crumpets or Giant Crumpets – Use the hashtag #WarburtonsChristmasCrumpets – Tag @warburtonsuk Competition closes: 5pm Sunday 17th December Ts&Cs in our bio! #win

Friends send friends messages on Instagram for their birthdays. That’s just, like, the law.
It was Taylor Swift’s birthday Wednesday and you’d better bet her friend Selena Gomez had nice stuff to say about it.
I’m glad you were born. You write all the thoughts some aren’t able to articulate. (ME!) Thank you for giving a voice to this world that is authentic and inspiring. I wish some knew how big your heart actually is.. it’s fierce, bold and freaking wild with light. I’m glad you protect that. Love you @taylorswift
