I had mistakenly thought that the WordPress app was replaced by Jetpack. Turns out it wasn't. It simply split from WordPress. You no longer need Jetpack to run the WordPress app on a self hosted WordPress site.
No offense to the people who surely work hard on this plugin, but it's not for me 😊.
Silly me. I've been manually typing the hashtags in these microposts. I even conceptualized this parser that automatically converts hashtags into WP tags and turns them into links.
