A #HappyValleyTV hashtag Would be Welcome: What do you Think?

I use the hashtag #HappyValley on Twitter to see what people are saying about Happy Valley, the master work from Sally Wainwright.

Why don’t we all agree to change the hashtag? #HappyValleyTV would work, wouldn’t it? Only two more characters, yet distinct from the tweets about actual places. We just have to publicize the idea enough that all the Happy Valley fans pick up on it.

Do you like the idea? Will you help spread the word if you do?
