  • Hashtag # just came out like earlier this year
    and it was always known as the pound key
    and some times the voicemail will call it
    the pound sign.

  • they are hashtags and the beauty of them is that you can use them with any word you want - they aren't predefined

    • also americans used to call them "pound signs" (even though it has nothing to do with the pound sign £)

    • Show All
    • yeah thats very American. in britain they call it the hash or hash sign (in my native language it's called "hekje", which translates to "small fence")

    • @zoooot That's very interesting :)

  • I wanted to say grid, as it looks like an American metropolis intersection with some imagination, but you already mentioned it. :)
