(New Musical Express)   Something known as "Dappy" said he got a tattoo of a hashtag on his face so he could "trend forever." However, his plan was met with a hitch after the public immediately demanded to know who the hell he is   (nme.com) divider line 36

It's not a damned hashtag. It's an American pound or international number symbol. Fark Twitter and their stupid terms.

I dislike Twitter a lot more than I dislike bad rap music, though both suck.

Someone punch that young man in his face, he appears to be deserving of it.

Looks like a birthmark below his right eye.  I was really expecting a giant pound on his forehead or something.  This isn't even not news.

I don't have a twitter and not entirely sure how it works, but I gather that #_____ is supposed to link that word to a specific twitter feed (correct?). Is there a way to have something like #douchebag link to his page?

Twitter is just a moron magnet.
I contend that Twitter is the biggest conduit of stupid people onto the internet.

American rappers put a tear below their eye to indicate that they've killed someone or lost someone in a tragic manner.

British rappers put a number symbol below their eye to indicate they are useless wankers.

It has its own language and insular properties.  It's weird.  I looked at it for the first time recently.  Face book is weird for me, too.  I gave it a shot.

There it no country for old men.

It's the 'pound' sign, as in 'pound' sand up your ass, or, you know, "please press the pound sand up your ass button".

Earlier this year Mr.Dappy had to apologize for sending death threats to a woman who called his band "losers" on a radio show.

Came here to say exactly this.

That's not a hashtag. THIS is a hashtag:

/Sorry, I don't smoke weed, so I'm new to this whole weed humor thing.
//Am I supposed to insert some reference to 420 or something? I'm just not sure.

Hash is a correct term for the symbol, originating outside of the US:

"Outside of North America the symbol is called hash and the corresponding telephone key is called the "hash key ... in the United Kingdom and Ireland, the symbol is most often called the hash (a corruption of 'hatch') or pounds sterling (where "£" is used). It is never called the 'pound sign'"

You're clearly following the wrong accounts, then. It's only as dumb as the accounts you follow.  I use it daily to keep up with news, and only follow people or accounts that have actual value or contribute something.

Thus I never see people tweeting about what they're eating, etc.

You know how when you're high you get hungry? Duuuuuuuude!! It's...I...wait, what was I saying?

/I also don't smoke weed, so I get you. No worries, though: so-called "pot comics" are awful.

Tagging a word like #this makes the word link to not a twitter feed so much as search results of tweets that contain the hashtag.  It can be used to add something you're saying to an ongoing topic like #SDCC (San Diego Comic Con) or #StarTrek, etc. so people can discover your tweets, or it can be used almost identically to the way people use a  /   at the end of a post on Fark.


So yeah, you could tweet something like  "I think @Dappy is a #douchebag" and anyone clicking on #douchebag or manually searching the hashtag would see him mentioned.  Especially if a lot of people agreed and retweeted you.

That's a leaf tag. Hash is the compacted form and more closely resembles putty or chocolate.

Wasn't this the guy that got kicked in the face by a horse, resulting in said horse being nominated for an 'Outstanding Contribution to Music' award?

Maybe he's just giving the next horse something to aim for.

Ok, so that didn't resize quite right.  Sorry if I startled anyone with unnecessarily large Archie.
