Current Twitter trends: Jerry Sloan, Thomas Edison

"You will never catch me 'settling for anything less than the best' or 'Smoking Cigarettes.. that stuff is gross'," say microbloggers using the number one term on Twitter, "#youwillnevercatchme," on February 11.

The hashtags "#1day" and "#hueleapasiva" fill the next two places on the charts and "YaNoMusicVideo" grabs fifth place.  

Chatter about Friday's release of Lady Gaga's single "Born This Way" has moved the term "BornThisWayFriday" up three places overnight.

Utah Jazz coach "Jerry Sloan" announced his resignation from the American major league basketball team on February 10 and his name has since been trending in Twitter's most talked about topics.

The name of American inventor "Thomas Alva Edison" is in eighth place as Twitterers wish him a happy 164th birthday and say "thank you for inventing the light bulb."

The wrongly spelled name of American professional basketball player Arron Afflalo ("Aaron Afflalo") is in seventh place, "Tyler Garry" is in ninth place and the name of NBA player "Jason Terry" is in tenth place.

The top 10 most talked about topics on Twitter on February 11 at 7:30 AM GMT are:

  1. #youwillnevercatchme (promoted)
