Some folks are using hashtags like #teched or #teched2011 or #TechEd_NA in their tweets. What happens when these other hashtags are used, is that not only does the communication stream get diluted, but the majority (and I do mean huge majority) of TechEd 2011 attendees will simply miss your message. From a vendor standpoint, this can be disastrous. By using the proper hashtag, your message gets seen and is added to the historical record for the event.
