Current Twitter trends: Cyclone Yasi, Google Art Project, LSD
Wednesday 02 February 2011
The top of Twitter's trending topic chart is filled with hashtags on the morning of February 2.
"#ReadySetHut," "#worstpickuplines" and "#iknowyoulike" fill the first three places while "#balaceragdl" makes it into sixth place.
After being inundated by floods over the last few weeks, residents in Queensland, Australia are bracing for a category 5 cyclone dubbed "Cyclone Yasi."
Twitters are tweeting about the fifth place topic saying, "The energy from Cyclone Yasi could power the world for a year. It is Australia's biggest cyclone ever & close to level of Hurricane Katrina," "Cyclone Yasi set to hit Australia sooner than initially expected, and is upgraded to highest threat level" and "How Cyclone Yasi compares in size to countries | Herald Sun http://goo.gl/qh37Y."
Bad weather is also causing chaos on Chicago's "LSD" (short for Lake Shore Drive). A blizzard has forced authorities to close the expressway and people on Twitter are posting about the large numbers of stranded motorists.
Google launched a new website (http://www.googleartproject.com/) that takes visitors on a virtual tour of world famous museums. Called "Google Art Project," the online project is proving popular with both art-lovers and microbloggers.
The name of recently deceased Turkish actress and VJ "Defne Joy Foster" is in fourth place, the name of Egyptian president Hosni "Mubarack" is back in the chart in eighth place and "Egyptians" moves down three places to number ten.
