Ive been meaning to ask this for a few years, I just don’t get it.

Are there some good guides on what a hashtag is etc ? Is it just Americans that use it ?

Am I alone in not getting Twitter ?

Someone was up late :P

Hashtag is just like a tag on anything else like websites, wordpress. It’s like a category almost. You can search by a hashtag and it’ll show all tweets with that hashtag. Hashtag is global, but it’s a bit old hat (because twitter can search by anything), but still common.

When looking at tweets i see stuff like #envato and @dave I think. Does that mean both those entities are notified you mentioned them, or does it mean when ppl search twitter your mentions possibly get found ?
