As far as I know a hashtag can contain any characters. It's rare for people
to include punctuation marks though, so I suspect it's more of a people
restriction than a technical one. Could be wrong though.

Hi, I was watching The Aprentice on thursday and one of the groups used
#where'smummy on their book. Just out of curiousity I did  control windows
slash where's mummy to see what happened and I got 100 results. Most of
these were saying it wouldn't work as a hash tag because of  the ' but
surely if I got 100 results, it did? Can anyone explain to a non I T person
like me, confused. Susan Jones
