digitalmars.D - Twitter hashtag for D?

If there isn't any, how about #dlang?
#D and #DMD give too many false positives,
#D_programming_language is ridiculously too long.

I guess that Twitter is not very popular among D fans
(http://www.digitalmars.com/d/archives/digitalmars/D/announce/Anyone_use_twitter_for_D_14287.html)
, and that serious discussions should be kept in newsgroups.
On the other hand, I don't see anything wrong with posting simple tweets
like "new DMD release, yay!" on Twitter.
It's a small contribution to what Walter called "social proof" :-)

I just tested those two. Although noone else uses #d-lang, it seems that twitter.com doesn't treat it as a hashtag (because it contains a dash?). #dpl gives a few false positives.

So what do people currently use for C and C++ then?

Not sure, but both #cpp and #cplusplus seem to be popular. As for D, I think we have settled down in #d_lang.
