Use a line break to separate the hashtags.

#### Explanation:

To add the  symbol in answers and in comments, include a line break in between any two hashtags symbols. This will prevent the editor from converting everything written in between the two hashtags symbols to math text.

So, for example, I used a  symbol in the previous paragraph and I can use one in this paragraph because I inserted a line break--newline, or simply an EOL character--to separate the paragraphs.

For illustration purposes--I'm pretty sure you've seen this happen before--I'll use two  symbols in the same line.

If you use one $s y m b o l \in a p a r a g r a p h \mathmr{and} f \mathmr{and} \ge t \to \mathrm{do} a l \in e b r e a k , t h e e \mathrm{di} \to r w i l l s i m p l y u s e t h e \sec o n d$ symbol to convert everything written after the first hashtag and before the second one to math text.

So as long as you have one  symbol per line, you should be in good shape.

Now, writing a hashtag symbol in between hashtags, i.e. getting the editor to format a hashtag symbol as math text, is a little more tedious mainly because I don't remember how to do it :D

I'll try to see if I can find a reference somewhere and come back to edit this answer.
