Twitter parsing does not conform to the standard

Description (last modified by Robby)
Adium matches hashtags it shouldn't, like #8
Steps to reproduce
- Create a Twitter account
- send a tweet containing a numbers-only hashtag
The hashtag should be displayed as-is
The hashtag displayed as a link, but the search page returned no results, because it is an invalid tag.
This and probably other inconsistencies occur at least with Adium 1.4 Beta, but I suspect all versions with Twitter support to have the same problem.
A test suit for twitter parsers: http://github.com/mzsanford/twitter-text-conformance
Edit: The above repository with test suite for twitter parsers has been deprecated in favour of https://github.com/twitter/twitter-text-conformance/commits/master.
