This exact history of the at sign is unknown. I like this one: its the evolution of the french “à” which was used in the marketplaces
“crepes à 2 francs”

The bottom right of the a connected with a elongated accent.

The @ has many uses, most common being email. use it to replace the word “at” while writing in shorthand.

@ is not traditional or standard typography.
