Hey, man, can I tweet your hashtag?

It a really bad come on, or maybe a script for a grungy-vice-cop TV pilot.

But it's not! Tweeting a hashtag is the wave of the future. Moreover, it's the wave of our future.

For those of you unfamiliar, check out Twitter for the basic mechanics of the platform.

Once you're signed up and running, check out this commentary on hashtags.

If you want to follow the #euap hashtag via SMS on your cell phone, you'll need to:

1. register for twitterfeed
2. follow the following rss: UPDATE: Twitterfeed doesn't work well for this application...wouldn't recommend it - Chris Casquilho

Then, start following #euap for tweets of earth-shattering importance!

Some of this is a little foggy feeling at first - but that seems to be the nature of these things. There's been a lot of learn-as-you-go and wiki-style help features. This might not be the end product, but it's the way of things for now. If you're looking for clear answers, social media isn't for you. But then again, where else are you getting clear answers...
