Like anything, it comes with its pros and cons, but hashtags have definitely become crucial in gaining support and increasing awareness for various causes --- from political campaigns to social movements.

Colossal cameras to feature on next year’s smartphones
The latest generation of Qualcomm chips, which will emerge in the next-wave of high-end smartphones starting in 2020, will have the power to manage enormous image files of up to 200 megapixels. Massive pixel counts are paving the way for increasingly precise photos that can be magnified and cropped to highlight certain details. At the same time, they also enable users to print pictures in very large formats. However, let's not forget that a 200-megapixel camera will not necessarily take pictures that have 200 million pixels, at least not all of the time.
