Night of 1000 Hashtags: #AstrosMovies Makes for A Hilarious String of Tweets
Movie hashtags and mashups are nothing new on Twitter, but on Thursday night (and bleeding over into Friday morning), a series of movie titles mashed up with baseball took over Twitter, at least here in Houston.
It would appear that it didn't actually begin with the home town team (looking back as far as I could, it may have been a Detroit Tiger fan that started it), but once they got started, Astros fans did NOT leave followers wanting. As far as I can tell, #AstrosMovies got started with @KevinBassStache (appropriate).
There were the obvious like The Bourn Supremacy, but others were much more creative. Here are some of our favorites.
