Is there a plugin to create Twitter style hashtags in headlines, posts, and comments?

I'd like a plugin that turned #hashtag words into hyperlinks and they become filters, does anyone know of anything like this that's been done on Vanilla?

    Just answered my own question by posting this, can see they auto hyperlink - nice!

    However, what about being able to hyper link them if they are added to the title of the post?

    @hgtonight said:
    I would run the title through the Gdn_Format::Mentions() method. It would only work on the individual discussion page (since the title is a link in the discussions list).

    public function DiscussionController_Render_Before($Sender) {
      $Discussion = $Sender->Data('Discussion');
      $Discussion->Name = Gdn_Format::Mentions($Discussion->Name);
      $Sender->SetData('Discussion', $Discussion, TRUE);

    Let me know if that works for you.

    Great thanks we'll give it a go and report back!
