I think that happens when you use this -->& for and

Ikng1t8w_normal @kouklitsa75 Toronto, Canada

it's webspeak for the "&" when it doesn't get recognized in text for whatever reason

Bex_pix_normal @bex_pix Mississauga

someone used an ampersand and that's how some programs translate it. Silly I know!

It is an error for "&" and it's annoying!

never heard of &amp..sorry

10:26PM Mon, July 02 2012

Etkrccqr_normal @MACDoubleDon

it does not mean anything. That happens when some phones put the symbol for the word "and" like this &

Image_normal @annieohh Alberta

ampersand is what "&" is called. One time I ordered cheques and instead of hubby's name it was &amp. Weird.

10:27PM Mon, July 02 2012

Stephy_202_normal @KendallAMC

it's a mistake that apps do when retweeting. I think it's just supposed to be "&"

10:27PM Mon, July 02 2012

16ef6c786c96901fd21576def66c3306_normal @flatarheel2 Central Florida

For some reason it shows up when you use the & key. Noticed it in DM, till I click on it,weird.

I think it's some type of an error code when a character is missing in a document . #not100%

277066c978cc15c6ee936fc2b673ba59_normal @SusetteWise

I do know that the symbol '&' is called an ampersand.

I hope you returned those cheques and they resent proper ones!

K6ya51do6kvuzu5n93mi_normal @lovesmylife Los Angeles

Think that shows up when someone makes a symbol like a smiley face but your computer doesn't read it & shows the html 4 it

Aa3a2da28b5113f215ed4892d7fce0e7_normal @boogieXlove in a world full of chaos.

It's when a certain character from either your phone or computer is unrecognizable with the programme or feature you use

That's a fact I forgot I knew, ampersand, smart girl. #FunnyYourNameIsWise

05eaa05433368300bb86d5a2032c4bdc_normal @whoopsidaisy86

Sometimes my phone shows that instead of "&" or "ampersand." I don't know why!

10:36PM Mon, July 02 2012

Imag0028__3_new_normal @julieryjones Euharlee GA

Hi! I am not an expert...some browsers don't recognize the '&' symbol. if '&and' is used it's code to use an ampersand

I literally have 30 retweets to my phone LOL... I'll have a drink with ya

Yes, I get that as well on my laptop. It's so annoying.

Hi Pat! Believe me my husband is the Wise one!!!

10:39PM Mon, July 02 2012

Me_normal @blueyzs Ohio

I have no idea but I think it's a typing error like for the & symbol lol

10:39PM Mon, July 02 2012

6ad8409c1d51eee69192a11a4d9d40cc_normal @CuteBecky

Also that's why I don't type Y&R. Instead I drop the "&" and just type YR bec I find that so annoying.

10:41PM Mon, July 02 2012

10:42PM Mon, July 02 2012

D64338461d1da9aa624d23cb84e69f5f_normal @Mudgie92

I think it's an error in computer coding. Some sites can't read "&".the coding peeps don't put in the special code for "&"

10:43PM Mon, July 02 2012

A5zccys4_normal @ClaudB4177 PA

True enough!!

10:43PM Mon, July 02 2012

I always wondered that myself. Did you seem 2 find the right answer?

10:46PM Mon, July 02 2012

A1dc1edc65701556e4a4c1d7818d0536_normal @MsCanadia

I think it's when someone types something and the Internet doesn't translate it properly. It's a coding error

10:49PM Mon, July 02 2012

14c17846075f76cdd87b55ef20e78ccd_normal @Cubfnatic

&amp happens when someone tries to retweet and twitter screws it up and jumbles the tweet lol

ampersand

11:51PM Mon, July 02 2012

Image_normal @Ryansea711 Eugene, OR

I think it's an abbreviation of the word for this symbol: & (ampersand?) some sort of weird computer mistake that happens.
