This afternoon Matt twittered
That bit with the hash symbol is called a hash tag. It's a little thing which makes it really easy to search Twitter for particular subjects. Conferences love them. Humans use them when discussing TV programmes, #apprentice or #bbcqt for example. They are also used for memes.
Matt may not have been the first to use that tag, but he's the first one on the Twitter search. (Twitter won't let you search people who have made their tweets private.)
So. Where were we? Oh yes. I replied/
Jeremy and Iain.
Richard even had his retweeted by the Britney Spears fan club.
And before we knew it a meme had been created. Someone should tell Robin Wight.
Currently there are over 300. Here are some of my favourites:
Sweet Tahoma Alabama
Across the Univers
Wind Beneath My Wingdings
We Have All The Times In The World
Don't Believe The Type
I'm So X-Heighted
You can see them all here.
