Burlington Meets Bahrain: When Twitter Hashtags Collide 

As we noted on page 5 of this week's Seven Days, conversation on the #BTV "hashtag" on Twitter has been dominated by angry tweets directed at an unpopular broadcaster in recent days — and no, the local Twitter community hasn't directed its ire at Burlington Telecom.

#BTV has been the go-to hashtag for Burlington-area Tweeters for years now, derived from the airport code for Burlington International Airport. When someone tweets about something Burlington related, he or she adds #BTV at the end so that other locals can easily find the tweet. These tweets are usually about Vermont weather, pictures of lakefront sunsets, discussion of lunch plans, and other small-talky pleasantries that foster a sense of community. But this week, the #BTV stream has looked different than usual.
