In today’s SSM Links on Storify, I included a story that didn’t really have anything to do with sports. But, I soon discovered it could be used very much for sports, thanks to Michael Katz:

Topsy has enabled search of every single tweet since 2006. That got me thinking. Could this be used for hashtags? You know, the kind that when a name or game is mentioned you think of a hashtag. Okay, maybe that’s just how I think. But, I decided to test it out.
#SMsports = social media sports
Gustavo Oliveira (@guhpr) August 09, 2010
Success. I’m not quite sure what it says but that was the first tweet listed on Topsy. Moving on…
#DempseyWatch = recently popular hashtag used by Seattle Sounders supporters during the “watch” to see if Clint Dempsey rumor was true. It was.
Christöpher Willöws (@Willows1204) April 09, 2012
Definitely nothing to do with Seattle.
#ButtFumble = Think Mark Sanchez and the New York Jets
Mazerati Foxx (@djmazmusic) October 31, 2011
I don’t know what
@djmazmusic @pej31 @pmilz_45 and @YKG23 were discussing but somehow it had something to do with #buttfumble.
#TebowTime = Tim Tebow. Enough said.

Four years ago, #TebowTime came into existence. Longer than his NFL career?
#BearDown = Arizona Wildcats
sounds like a good chunk of the zona zoo in miami to support the cats #beardown—

Sorry Chicago Bears fans. This hashtag began with the U of A.
#Pac12 = Pac-12 conference
Christy McConville (@bruinmccon) September 19, 2009
Only surprising thing about this tweet from four years ago is that it also included the #Pac10.
#StraightCashHomey = Ask Randy Moss
(@Mike_Thiel) February 19, 2009
Wait, wait. #StraightCashHomey and Dunkin Donuts in the same tweet? I don’t even know.
#ChildPlease = Ask Chad “OchoCinco” Johnson
Nate M (@NMFish) July 08, 2009
Twitter was kind of boring four years ago for these guys, huh?
#BeastMode = Ask Marshawn Lynch.
BJW (@GQBound) March 01, 2009
This one threw me for a loop. Bubbleguts? Vail? How is that #BeastMode?
#MACtion = Watch MAC football. End of story.
We’re more into the action. Welcome to Massachusetts in Action (#MAction)—

No search disappointed me more than this one. Massachusetts in Action has nothing on the Mid-American Conference during football season. Sigh.
Got a hashtag you want looked up? Let me know and we’ll find out what the oldest tweet to use it was. Tweet me, @CadChica, or leave a comment on this post.
