Lol yep....you could tweet about #MLS ...but no one in the USA apart
from 20-30 people would know what you are talking about...ha ha.

And yes we already own www.LIveMLSchat.com though who knows if we are
ever going to deploy it.

Subject: [twitter-dev] Re: [Feature Request] Hiding certain Hashtags


And this illustrates in part why hashtags filtering won't achieve  
exactly what might be expected.

ie US based tweets about Football likely start rising right about now  
as training camps open and end around the Super Bowl in Feb. But the  
rest of the English speaking world would tweet about a very different  
Football on a different schedule (what we in the US call soccer)

Further many tweets about football (of either type) wouldn't include  
Football anywhere - would refer to a specific team (The Bears, ManU,  
Hull, 49ers etc) or to players or coaches or to a league or  
competition (worldcup, superbowl, afc etc)
