What does it mean when you use the # sign as an expression?
I'm pretty sure that's a LoudTwitter formatting element.

I don't think it actually means anything - the service I use to import my Twitter posts, LoudTwitter, automatically attaches it to the end of my tweets. I think it's just there to serve as an anchor point for the link to twitter.com where you can see the original message.
Fun trivia: Many programmers call # the "hash" symbol (I was once told that's because of its visual similarity to hash browns, but Wikipedia simply says
the hash mark is what it's called in many locations outside of America and the usage seems to be filtering in due to Internet influence).
Note that #.# can also mean “I am a robot with a square face.”
One might also use @#@ to mean “Someone has just smashed my nose.”
Unrelatedly, it is also possible to interpret <.> as “My eyes are positioned to the sides of my head and can move independently, so good luck sneaking up on me.”
