Top definition
A hashtag on social media platforms such as Twitter or Instagram that is unnecessary or ridiculous, and is therefore colloquially defined as being 'gash'.

As a general rule of thumb, people who gashtag don't fully understand the concept of hashtagging - that by placing the # symbol in front of words designates them as search terms for other users.
Generic tweet: "OMG Made In Chelsea is on #imsoinlovewithspencermarrymeplease" - this is a gashtag because no one is going to type that in to a twitter search and clicking on it is unlikely to show any other tweets because the tag is so ambiguous

Or

New photo on Instagram: New dress #selfie #lipstick #and #lashes - in this case 'and' is the gashtag, it is unnecessary because 'and' is not a term most users will want to search for, and if it is, they probably weren't looking for a selfie from a pouting teenage girl.
