Current Twitter trends: Bieber Premiere, Blaving, Patriot Act
Wednesday 09 February 2011
Paramount Pictures is using Twitter to offer fans "VIP access" to Justin Bieber's
Never Say Never premiere with first place term "#BieberPremiere" on the morning of February 9.
"Weezy Bieber" is also in the charts in seventh place as Twitterers ask each other, "why is Weezy Bieber trending?"
Second, third and fifth place in Twitter's trending topics are filled with the hashtags "#ifyoureallylovedher," "#younotfromdetroit" and "#cumannanya."
Both the name of Britney Spears' new album Femme Fatale and the name of Lady Gaga's soon to be released single "Born This Way" ("BornThisWayFriday") move up one place in Twitter's list of most talked about topics while the name of American musician "Ike Turner" is new in eighth place.
Spanish microbloggers are using their 140 characters to talk about a new social network called "Blaving" that launched in Sao Paulo earlier in the week. Blaving is a social network based around short voice messages. Blaving users record a two-minute audio post that can be shared with other users via the web.
Microbloggers in the US are tweeting about the failed attempt to extend the American "Patriot Act" saying, "VICTORY: PATRIOT Act sneak attack beaten back, House fails to extend #PATRIOTAct this evening! Thanks to all who took action!," "Patriot Act is an assault on privacy and civil liberties - House should re-read the Constitution and NOT extend" and "Patriot Act extension fails! Republican party figuring itself out is still the most fascinating unfinished story in US politics."
