    Researchers from Michigan have scoured websites, search engine results and social networks dating back as far as 1996 in search of people who discussed select events before they happened. They even asked time travellers from the future to tweet using a specific hashtag. Yet despite comprehensive analysis of thousands of records, they were unable to find any evidence time travellers existed.

    Vin Scully asks: ‘What in the world is hashtag?’ That's the question, isn't it? Legendary Los Angeles Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully, who makes everything sound better, especially baseball, also can make the word "hashtag" sound like some kind of illegal activity. He was curious about hashtagging, along with a new television channel called "Dog TV" that a satellite company is starting, so he worked both constructs into the broadcast of the Dodgers-San Diego Padres game Wednesday night. Naturally.

    A French nonprofit said it was considering making complaints against some Twitter users following an explosion of French-language anti-Semitic messages. SOS Racisme, a Paris-based anti-discrimination organization, made the statement on its website after the phrase UnBonJuif on Oct. 10 became the third most popular hashtag among French Twitter users. Literally meaning “a good Jew,” it served thousands of Twitter users to enter what the French daily Le Monde termed “a competition of anti-Semitic jokes.” One Twitter account registered to the username “Marcel Leblanc” posted a picture of an emaciated Jewish woman taken in a Nazi concentration camp as his or...

    At the risk of beating a dead horse, I’m letting you know that the Obama campaign has unveiled yet another hashtag: #readytogo. Now they’re just making it too easy. The campaign, which officially kicked off Saturday in Ohio, even got some some college students (a la 2008) at Ohio State University to lend their faces to the latest twitter try.

    Well, ok, since this has been floating around for a week or so now, we can finally get to the truth: the Buffet Rule is really more about spreading the wealth around. Just not that much wealth, according to the CBO, so it’s more symbolic of where we intend to go from here. So anyway, the “Buffet Rule” was never about paying down the deficit? It was about making life “fair” all along? The goal, Mr. Furman explained, is to establish a "a basic issue of tax fairness." ... ...On another front: all hell’s broken loose again with one of...

    ...So,if you follow the "I like Obamacare" link David sent and give him your email and zip code (the better to target you, if and when we need a little extra help in your district), he will send you the special twitter hashtag. Butt, since I know you’re all “in”, I’ll save you the trouble. It’s #ILikeObamacare. Then you, too, can start tweeting out to the world how much you “like” Obamacare! (because “love” is such a strong word). Butt we need your help: apparently the Right Wing Attack Machine has hijacked this hashtag (just like they did with #AttackWatch)...
