The Twitterverse has welcomed a new hashtag trend and we can’t help but love it.

The hashtag #LoveMeLike started making its rounds on Twitter with black women expressing how they want to be loved. The woman behind the social media love-fest is known as Syd aka @Blackamazon on Twitter.

After being flooded with profound and beautiful tweets in response, she shared her humbled delight at the hashtag’s success.

And with thousands of tweets already floating around, it’s clear that many women share Syd's sentiments.
