A Determiner! Trick question – is #HIE a noun, verb, adjective, adverb or interjection? #HIMSS14

I wasn’t there, where this tweet was tweeted from, so lack necessary context for interpretation.

But that’s never stopped me before!

I rest my case. (I could make a pun about case grammar, but no one would get it.)
