Although tweets in Indian languages have been around for a while now, but it was only recently that hashtags in Hindi actually rose up to top trends on the social media website, Twitter. On February 15th, when India played the ICC World Cup match against the archrival Pakistan, for the first time a hindi hashtag, #??????? became one of the most trending hashtags. Presently, on the occasion of Maha Shivratari, the hashtag #?????????? is making the rounds.

 

Lately, a lot of social media platforms have introduced new features to cater to the Indian audience. It was only last month that Twitter enabled its users to translate tweets in Hindi and Urdu with the help of the search engine, Bing. Though, Twitter had added support for Hindi back in 2011.
