Georgia fans on twitter may have to use a different hashtag during the Olympics.
Bulldog faithful discovered Tuesday that one of their most commonly used hashtags–#UGA–has been claimed as the official hashtag for the country of Uganda during the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The change is sure to frustrate fans and media members trying to share news about the Bulldogs. Plenty of reporters’ tweets suddenly look like they’re talking about the African nation’s running back rotation.
Uganda is apparently still wrestling with its quarterback situation as well.
After the initial confusion wore off, Georgia fans started to have fun with the mixup.
And some non-Georgia fans took the opportunity to take some shots as well.
Other programs are dealing with hashtag confusion as well. Eastern Carolina’s #ECU hashtag now refers to Ecuador. Nebraska’s #GBR hashtag, which stands for “Go Big Red,” now refers to Great Britain. And Purdue’s #PUR hashtag is being used for Puerto Rico.
