Chris Messina on Twitter Tags

Chris Messina suggests the use of the hash character (“#”) to precede Twitter tags… which are not supported by any tools yet:

[from yeah, I’m proposing that we use the hash (#) for tagging or grouping…

He then goes on, in his next tweet, to use the hash, making a startling(?) announcement:

Ok, leaving Citizen Space. Relocating probably to work more. #citizenspace

But I bet he doesn’t mean permanently moving out of his Citizen Agency office because he needs to accomplish more work: I bet he’s just leaving for the evening.

Anyway… I support the #tag convention.
