A year of #233moments - moments that made us think of Ghana
233moments was started as a hashtag where we'd share where we are and what we are doing at 2:33pm and 2:33am in honour of Ghana. This year, it's become more than that. People have shared various things they call Ghanaian moments as #233moments. In fact, it's become a hashtag to promote and brand Ghana, as captured by +Donald Ward & +Edward Amartey-Tagoe in a tweet below. Here are a few top and selected tweets to capture the essence of this in 2013.
This has to be one of the saddest #233moments ever RT @comedyghana: disappointment pic.twitter.com/UXuArKuf
