Sub Hash Tags

instead of just supporting the standard #hashtag

why not also support suhhashtags?

e.g. #world#country#city#event

or maybe this form looks better?

e.g. #event:city:country:world like #Rio:2016:Olympics

it would be more detailed, and would allow for degrees of searching. e.g. you can search for #world#country1 or #world, without interfering with #world#country2

To take this further, you can still support searches of both #world#country1 and #world#country2 by perhaps using ## instead. Where the number of hashes defines the 'level' of the tags.

e.g. #world##country1##country2

EDIT IN RESPONSE TO MIKED:

hmmm... what don't you get about it?

Its so you can assign a 'relation' to a post.

e.g. when you want to say that your post is about NEW YORK that exist in USA, you say #USA#NEWYORK . Hence anybody who searches for the tag #USA , will see post that contains hashtags of either #USA or #USA#NEWYORK

Other applications. Geohashes that are searchable from twitter in 'degrees'. E.g "N 12° 20' 44", W 98° 45' 55"" could be subhashed as #geotag##N12###20####44##W98###45####55

where the same number of hashes indicate that the two subhashes are 'level' in the pecking order.

The GPS example is admittedly unwieldy, but the capability is there. However I only expect people would require at most 3 subhashes.

e.g. #event1#team2#task3#subtask4 - for a group that is working on a specific task.

       long time no see, oh short-one-with-hands-on-hips. I'd comment on your idea, but I have absolutely no clue what it is about.

       Have a look at the edit I made, I provided more examples.   

       But tl;dr: Subhashtags is about emulating the multilevel categories feature that you often find in many websites in hashtag form. E.g. the categories of Stationary>pens>color that you find in shopping stores.

       Unless you have many occasions where there's going to be not only a France:Paris but a Paris:France it's sortof irrelevant in one of those newfangled databases; as long as you get people to enter the tags, having them ordered is non sequitur to most queries.
