What is a 'Twitter hashtag game' you might ask! Well, it's when people, often scientists and experts in their field, pose a question such as "is this photo a picture of a Cougar?" #cougarOrNot or "which bird laid these eggs?" #WhoLaidIt etc.
To enter the game you can tweet your answer, either as a reply to the game or a regular tweet, so long as you use the hashtag of the game. To follow along with other people's answers to the game you can search Twitter for the hashtag.
