I don't use the Twitters, but I understand the the # symbol before a word or phrase designates a specific Twitter page, right? But I'm seeing people stick a # before all sorts of stuff now.

For example, Joe might post the following on the Facebooks:

One too many beers last night! LOL! #Joeisveryhungover

As if the last part is his Twitter page specifically devoted to this hangover. Except it's not really very clever or funny.

Kids these days.
