All Hail the Octothorpe!

The National Post’s Robert Fulford has the goods on “one of the great comeback stories in the history of competitive punctuation.”

Personally, I’ve never been much of a fan of the #, as I find it a bit inelegant and unwieldy. And the fact that it owes its resurrection to something as inane as Twitter, whose users—Twits?—had the cheek to rename it a “hashtag,” makes me even less likely to employ it.

These days, however, it’s nice to see punctuation used at all.
