What Does the #fb tag on Twitter Mean?

The #fb tag on Twitter means that your Twitter posts with the #fb tag will also be posted to your Facebook status.

In order to get this to work, you need to set up the Selective Twitter Status application up on Facebook.
Three Steps

Step 1:

Go to the Selective Twitter Status application page on Facebook.

Step 2:

Enter your twitter username.

Step 3:
Press Save.
Any tweets you post that end with #fb will now update your Facebook status.

Selective Twitter Status - Help Page:
The hashtag should be added to the end of your tweet.

One exception: it's ok if the #fb is followed by a space and then a link, e.g. "This is my tweet #fb http://linky.com/linky". This ensures it will still work with apps that automatically add links e.g. TwitPic

There must be a space before the hashtag.
