#Biosdecoded: the best Twitter hashtag you’ll see today

Ever wondered what someone means when they include the words “passionate about social media”, “free spirit” or “views are my own” in their Twitter bio? Well a whole load of people, using the hashtag #biosdecoded think they have the answers.

While the effort is admirable, and the people engaging in the task undoubtedly selfless, their translations haven’t exactly been what you’d call consistent.

For instance, “Model” could mean, “A mate once took some pics of me in a bikini” or “an ex took some nudie photos of me” (both could be true, we guess). Blogger meanwhile could mean “I write too much” or “I have a blog which is a digitIsed form of my daily diary..I call it Random musings”.

We guess decoding a Twitter bio is more art form than science. Nonetheless, we’ve collated some of our favorite attempts and we reckon they’ll bring a smile to your face at the very least.
