Is the @ symbol hurting Twitter? The social networks tries to do without
If you want to bake, you have to learn how to read a recipe. Is it really impossible for people to learn how to use the @ symbol? As for hashtags? No big deal. If you don’t get it, you don’t use it. For me, the bigger issue is the issue that makes Twitter unique – the short format. Because of it, people had to write in text speak and code. Don’t like it? Send an email.
