The hashtag.....#...... many of us older folks grew up calling it a pound sign, but the original, and correct name for it is "Octothorpe", and to me, that sounds way cooler than either of the other two. What do you think? Can we start a new trend by using an old reference?

Before you end the hashtag stuff, do a google search for a classic internet marketing fail...#askneal.

I always saw it as the number sign or the sharp sign--depending on the context

This thread just proves guitar players are a bunch of stubborn old facks that resist change. :)

The symbol might be called the octothorpe, but the symbol with the word after it is rightfully termed a hashtag. A hashtag isn't just the symbol by itself.
