digitalmars.D - #D_lang vs #Dlang hashtags

Hi,

There are two twitter hashtags commonly used, #D_lang and #Dlang.

I think #D_lang is the "official" one (don't remember where I saw that), 
but #Dlang is much more used. Probably because:

* It is more natural, what most people would guess on
* It saves another of the 140 characters
* Is much easier to type

It's unfortunate to have a split in the tag usage though, since traffic 
will be missed, and will seemless than it is.

So, I would suggest to recommend using#Dlang instead, as it is what most 
users will use anyway?

Just my 2c

Best Regards

The decision has been made to use #dlang already.

On a somewhat related issue, how does one search for something related to D on the Internet? I'm mostly talking about quick technical questions here, like "how does one use X feature, or Y library function, properly". I've found googling for "site:dlang.org <my question>" to be most useful for now since this includes the mailing archive. However, this does not include several other meaningful alternatives such as StackOverflow. And Google does not generally recognize "D" or "Dlang" as good as it does "C" or "C++". Any suggestions? ----- Ivan Kazmenko.

Add "d programming" (including quotes) to your search query.

I just kill another of 140 chars and add both hashes. More spam - better marketing. I believe - we win!
