How do you say '@' in Chinese? #符号称呼

Based on its shape, in the 20th century the Chinese has usually referred to it as "a circle", "a flower" or "little mouse", but by the beginning of the 21st century, this reference has disappeared in China. In the early 21st century, the Chinese mainland Internet users who are affected by Baidu Post Bar and other online forums, use the "艾特" (in English "at" transliteration) to refer to "@" symbol. In Taiwan generally known as "little mouse", but after the 2000s gradually reduced. In Hong Kong and Macao and aliases in common with the English translation of "at", while English also has "A-Tail" (a band tail), "monkey tail" (monkey tail) and "asperand" and so on.

而根据其外形,中國大陸在20世纪末通常称其为「圈a」、「花a」或「小老鼠」,但是到21世纪初,这些叫法在中国大陆销声匿迹了。21世纪初,中国大陆的网民受到百度贴吧网上论坛的影响,改用“艾特”(英语“at”的音译)来称呼“@”符号。在台灣普遍称之为「小老鼠」,但在2000年代後逐漸罕用。在而在香港與澳門譯普遍同英文「at」,另外英文中也有“A-Tail”(带尾巴的a)、“monkey tail”(猴尾巴)和“asperand”等别名。
