If you want to plug into zim you could have a look at the "print to browser"
plugin, which adds a button to the tasklist dialog for html export. If you
want to make it a background script, try re-using the code of the tasklist
plugin for accessing the index.

No zim's "@" syntax does not predate the twitter convention. But you will
find there are older systems using "@" for tags as well. Main reason I
choose this syntax is that in HTML "#" is used for anchors, which is a
feature we still want to add to zim.

Actually work is ongoing to make zim support multiple syntaxes. No need to
have one-size-fits all in this respect. See previous discussion on this
list, as well as various syntax related feature requests in the bug tracker.
