  1. Twitter May Phase Out @ Replies And Hashtags In the Future

    wired:

    fastcompany:

    Some of Twitter’s more confusing Internet jargon—hashtags, @ replies, and manual retweets—no doubt add to the initial confusion. But in the future, the service may do away some of its more perplexing and insular language.

    There goes the neighborhood.

    It would look much more professional and cleaner if the @ replies were gone (but replies are still available) but I’m worried it will make it more confusing to existing users. Hashtags suck on the whole but sometimes they can be useful, so they can’t get rid of those.
