Current Twitter trends: Google Chrome Game, RIP Guitar Hero
Thursday 10 February 2011
Google is asking microbloggers to "get creative" by making and tweeting about their own "think fast" video challenge with first place term "Google Chrome Game" on the morning of February 10.
The idea of the "Google Chrome Game" is to create a video that tests how fast people can think by writing the first part of a phrase and seeing if viewers can complete it before the next phrase appears.
"#idontunderstandwhy" is back in the chart in second place ahead of new entries "#topthat" and "#aristegui."
Fans of pop singers Britney Spears and Lady Gaga are keeping the names of their soon to be released album Femme Fatale and single "Born This Way" ("BornThisWayFriday") in the charts in fifth and seventh places respectively.
Microbloggers are lamenting the news that Guitar Hero publisher Activision/Blizzard will soon "disband Activision Publishing's Guitar Hero business unit" due to the lack of interest in the music genre with sixth place term "RIP Guitar Hero."
"RIP to The legend that is Guitar Hero, you will always be remembered for many a great night in," write microbloggers.
"Waddup Doe" is in eighth place, "Valentine Days" is in ninth place and the name of Mexican newspaper editor "Ciro Gómez Leyva" is in tenth place.
The top 10 most talked about topics on Twitter on February 10 at 7:30 AM GMT are:
- Google Chrome Game (promoted)
