French Government has officially banned the word hashtag, email, blog and other foreign words it considers a threat.......'#policestate'

The French Government has banned the Twitter term 'hashtag' from all official documents in their latest bid to ban a torrent of English words invading their language.

The Government's powerful Académie française has decreed that the French word 'mot-dièse' must be spoken when the '#' symbol appears in print.

Teachers have been told to urge schoolchildren to use the term, and the media has also been asked to avoid using the English word.
