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.

In Commonwealth English, the symbol is usually called the hash and the corresponding telephone key is called the hash key. In American English, the symbol is usually called the pound sign (outside the US, this term often describes instead the British currency symbol "£") and the telephone key is called the pound key.[1] In Canadian English, this key is most frequently called the pound key, in reference to telephone buttons,[citation needed] but in technology is always referred to as hash.

What's funny is that I had posted it from my phone, and hadn't seen the rest of the comments at the time. Boy do I feel late to the party.

It used to be the Number key on the phone but because we hang out with Americans and copy them we changed it.
