Bug Description

http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/global/17/detail/ seems to show all "ubuntu" related dents and tweets as opposed to "ubuntu-hours"

We should make the form for hashtags
 - remove '#' at the beginning
 - and complain about '-'

Background: http://getsatisfaction.com/twitter/topics/hashtags_with_a_hyphen_break_the_link_functionality

Changed in loco-directory:

status: New → Triaged

It's not Twidenash that's causing the problem, it's the services themselves not supporting hyphens in tags.

See: http://getsatisfaction.com/twitter/topics/hashtags_with_a_hyphen_break_the_link_functionality

summary: - Microblogging thing does not parse tag "ubuntu-hours" well
+ do proper hashtag validation
tags: added: bitesize data

#ubuntu-hours has been changed to #ubuntuhour. Is this still something that we should work on, or should it just be standard not to use hash tags with hyphens?
