Perfect explanation Heather. It makes total sense me know. Thank you for the article.

No, you're right. I'd never tried it before and by the time I got around to making the decision all I had was my not-smart phone, which lets me tweet nicely but makes all other parts of the Twitter experience impossible -- so I didn't know. Definitely a fail, but life will go on.

Correct me if I'm wrong Heather, but when Tweeting shouldn't a hashtag actually use a hashtag, ie #$$$ ?

And if Twitter doesn't allow it ($), why bother mentioning it and continue putting it in your tweets?
