Margaret Thatcher Hashtag Confuses Cher Fans
On Monday morning, the world learned of the death of Margaret Thatcher, the first female British prime minister. A champion of free-market economics, she was arguably the country’s most important political figure since Winston Churchill. She died following a stroke at the age of 87.
One of the first hashtags to spring up on Twitter on Monday was #nowthatchersdead, created by a website critical of Thatcher.
