Does anyone use it? I've signed up but I don't get it. It seems like a lot of people use it to chime in on interests to weigh their opinions. But I don't understand it.

I love it. It's kinda like just statuses from FB. I think it's fun to follow celebrities.

Yeah, that's what I want to do. The shows I like, a few celebrities, etc. I'm not understanding the hashtags vs the @ or both.

Lol! Totally understand!

The @ is when you want to directly tag someone. They will get a notification that they have been tagged in your tweet and, in most cases, your tweet will also show up on their page.

The # is kinda like tagging an idea. The most "tagged" idea are what is trending, which you can see off to the left side. Further, you can also search for "tagged ideas" to see what others are saying. For example, when the show Revolution first started people were tagging the show with the @ symbol, but also tagging it with the #. So I looked up what others were saying about #Revolution. People also use the # to sometimes sum up their tweet, and they can be hilarious!
