I regularly read Tweets without being subscribed to Twitter. I will not spoil the fun other readers by revealing how.

There are several dozen slightly different t-shirts for sale with the saying '#: This is a sharp, not a hashtag.' Your mileage may vary, but I suspect wearing it will not make you popular.
