8. I hate Twitter. I hate hashtags. I can't read a tweet.

I don't know what the hashtags mean when they are in a tweet - are they part of the message text, or do they have some meaning?

I hate Twitter, too. IDK why it's taken so seriously on the news.

10. It's all kind of made up on the fly

Twitter just gives you 140 characters and it's up to you what you do with them.

But somewhere along the line, people got the idea of using a particular word or combination of letters with a pound sign in front of them to tag their tweets and make them easy to find with a search. So when there are natural disasters, you get a lot of tweets with #quake or #sandy or whatever.

But people also use them for funny stuff -- like these Rubio ones. So if you search Twitter for #watergate, you get this:

https://twitter.com/search/%23watergate?

Go ahead and click on it -- you don't need a Twitter account -- and you'll see a lot of people making Marco Rubio jokes.

That's all there is to it.
