Microbloggers are wishing their followers a Happy Valentine's Day on the morning of February 14 with the hashtag "#happyvalentinesday."

Folk band "Mumford & Sons" joined legendary singer Bob Dylan on stage during the awards ceremony and microbloggers are using their 140 characters to tweet about the performance.
"Mumford & sons killed it. Such a fan" and "4 lads w/ acoustic instruments + fierce poetry + soaring harmonies = mumford & sons rocked the grammys even w/ their pants on," tweet microbloggers.
"#5FreeSongs" is promoted in first place, and fans are talking about Britney Spears's next album Femme Fatale with ninth place term "Britney Fatale."
