It will probably be the ASCII apostrophe.  The stated intent favors
the apostrophe over diacritics or special characters to ensure that
the language can be input to computers with standard keyboards.

Typing U+0027 into a word processor takes planning.  Of the three, it
should obviously be the modifier letter U+02BC, but I think what gets
stored will be U+0027 or the single quotation mark U+2019.

However, we shouldn't overlook the diacritic mark U+0315 COMBINING COMMA


I have just tested twitter hashtags and as one would expect, U+02BC does not break hashtags. See twitter.com/andreschappo/status/953903964722024448<http://twitter.com/andreschappo/status/953903964722024448>
