Of course, there are a wide variety of web apps that can help people see trends on Twitter. Ex: airplane crash in the US, death of Michael Jackson, etc.
    5. 5. Université Paris 13 Nord 11/23/09 3. What’s hot on twitter? One of the most complex features of Twitter is the hashtag , a topic with a hash symbol (#) at the start to identify it. The hashtag is a favorite tool of conferences and event organizers, because if we append a certain hashtag to an event, it becomes easier to find that in search, and more likely the topic will be hot. Ex: #leweb08 for the big Internet Event “Le Web Paris 2008”
