"Is Twitter Getting Rid of @-Replies and Hashtags?" »

dbreunig:

The latest hand-wringing. The answer is clearly: of course, but eventually.

@ replies and hashtags are hacks for the behavior we really want. They’re abstract pointers to real subjects and people. Of course they will disappear.

Similarly, we select contacts instead of dialing phone numbers and use periods instead of writing STOP.

Once a simpler, less abstract method arises we will shift. Eventually, a hashtag will be nostalgic marker or joke, like a Polaroid or record scratch.
