Since when has that become a "hashtag?" I always knew it as the pound sign, like when you're calling an automated call center and they ask you for a number followed by the pound sign.

It's definitely a pound sign. All who disagree will be cast into the Flames of Eternity.

According to the OED, '#' has been known as the Pound / Number sign since 1892 or so. In the 1980's, likely with computer programming, it also became known as the Hash Sign.

'Sign' was probably switched out for twitter, since it is appended and 'tagged' onto message.

The more you know.

No its still a hash sign. Something with a hash at the start is the hashtag (e.g. #shitthreads).

And it is definitely the sign for number (e.g. you're #1 translates to YOU'RE NUMBER ONE!). That I agree with.

I just dont get the pound bit. Sounds old fashioned and lame.

Most people use Lb. these days, so the use of # to represent pounds is sort of exceptionally rare.

(On the other hand, measurements will still use ' more minutes and " for seconds, especially when it relates to degrees, minutes and seconds))

The symbol '#' is indeed a pound sign. That symbol followed by text together makes a hashtag.
