#thehubisnotaplayground Hits Penn State After Offensive Tweet

What does it take to start a Twitter hashtag these days? Many people have tried and failed to start hashtags like #Rush___ or #Team___, which usually never pick up steam.

That tweet was sent out earlier this afternoon and made its rounds through the Penn State Twitter community. The tweet and Twitter account were quickly deleted, but we are left with a hashtag for the ages: #thehubisnotaplayground
