In 140 characters:

The slash ("/" aka "the slasher") is used to set off metadata from the rest of a tweet.

 

Description:

Metadata to a tweet has often been surrounded by parentheses to set it off from the main body of the tweet. While this works, it uses one character too many. The slasher is a convenient and compact way to indicate the start of metadata.

 

Details and Use Cases:

To use the slasher, just prefix your tweet's metadata with the slash!
