   That's the approach I'm taking right now.  I'm also fortunate
enough that the participants that use the hashtag are very organized
and publicly archive their discussions (they're moderated and
scheduled in advance).  And since it's all public I sailed through IRB
without a problem.
   What the hastag?! (http://wthashtag.com/Main_Page) seems to be a
popular choice for this kind of searching and monitoring of hashtags.
But like Twitter their archives don't seem to go back more than a few
days so you'll need to take that into consideration.
