10. The difference is ...
Edited on Sun Jul-24-11 02:34 AM by Tx4obama

When you use the @ symbol it means that you are directing your tweet to the person's name that is after the @
When you use the # hash tag symbol folks that do a search for #(whatever) it shows up in the search results.

Example if I send a tweet to Keith Olbermann and want everyone that does a search for #CurrentTV to see it - I would type:

@KeithOlbermann Please hire Cenk to be on #CurrentTV
