Can someone explain what the # represents?
It's a hashtag, made popular by Twitter. They want people to use #oneteam in their tweets about Penn State football on gameday to get it trending.
It is a hashtag symbol. Frequently used on twitter. You can use the hashtag symbol to make your tweet searchable by other people. That way you can link your tweet to other people that are talking about the same thing.
Example: #RestoreTheRoar Anyone that searches that hashtag can see the tweets of people talking about Restore The Roar...
Hope this helps!
# is a symbol that is used before a word or phrase on Twitter to make that word or phrase searchable and stand out in general.
A use for it would be, "We played really well today! #oneteam
Or sarcastically, "Good going BOB, 3 points against Ohio. #oneteam
Think of it as a rallying cry for the social media era. No doubt coaches are hoping that this catches on with players and fans. Probably want this and not #teamoutlaw to be what the team and fans tweet in support if the team.
Thanks. To me that # means number... so ii was reading number one team wwhich sounded pretty damn cocky. So is bob behind thiis one team twitter tag??
He probably supports this but I doubt it was his idea. Seems about as knowledgeable as you are about Twitter.
Good move IMO, players and fans were getting flak for using #TeamOutlaw, better to have something team oriented and positive.
Should've been #DicedPineapples
What does #dicedpineapples mean? Been wondering this.
Rick Ross song title
This was also on the sideline.

Oh good sir, it means so much more than just a simple song title.
I saw this posted on twitter, Sean.
They need to do a little bit of work on the website.
"DOMINATE the state" - James Franklin 1/11/14
While clearly about women, the concept of "Diced Pineapples" actually originated with Ross' health scare last year. Back in October 2011, the Maybach Music Group boss suffered a pair of seizures while flying and got a medical recommendation to incorporate more fruit into his diet moving forward. Apparently, Ross is a huge pineapple fan, which started him down the path to this song.
When he previewed his album with MTV News earlier this week, Ross explained more. "When I got out of the hospital — you know, I had a seizure last year — when I was leaving, the doctor told me, 'You gotta eat some more fruit, drink you some water, eat fruit and just relax for a little while.' My fruit of choice was pineapples," he said.
"For the next three weeks, I woke up every morning and ate diced pineapples, and I put the concept together," he continued. "Drizzy came in, as well as Wale, and it's kinda like, 'She could be my diced pineapple. This special lady, she could be what I wake up to every morning and help me get by every day."
Opening with some legitimate poetry from Wale, the piano-heavy track nails that women-as-fruit seduction motif. "Crib on the water, got Lebron up the block," raps Ross, trying to impress his lady-of-interest. Drake, perfect with the song's muted drums, does his sensitive Lothario thing on the hook.
I went to the website in the sideline pic and was disappointed. All that is there is a PSU logo, that's it.
Haha, I thought I would just leave it where I left it and not go any further. If you care to elaborate, be my guest.
There's really not much to it. People were arguing in the twitter thread a couple weeks back, someone chimed in with "isn't this thread about twitter" and I opened twitter to see if there was anything worth posting to get the conversation back on track.
The most recent tweet was from Kyle Carter and it simply said "diced pineapples." So I quoted the person asking for more tweets, and I posted KC's tweet as a response to his request.
Kinda loses the magic when explained out after the fact. It's still fun to throw it around though.
I am sure that site will improve greatly by sept 1
