For the second day in a row, the top of Twitter's trending topics list is filled with memes.

In first place is the promoted term "#DressLikeFlo" while "#thingsweusedtodoaskids," "#whyyougotatattooof" and "#badconversationstarters" are in second, third and fourth places on the morning of October 29.

The much-rumored second Google smartphone, "Nexus Two," takes fifth place as users tweet, "Might buy a Nexus Two," "Nexus Two (or Nexus S) reportedly a lot like the Galaxy S, only different" and "Sounds like the 'Nexus Two' will become the new fastest Android phone when it get unveiled in a couple weeks..."

The name of Spanish politician "Marcelino Camacho" is in sixth place and New Zealand's Next Top Model contestant "Elza" is in eighth place.

Twitter users are questioning if previously unreleased footage from a 1928 preview of a "Charlie Chaplin" movie captures a "time traveller" using a mobile phone.

Animated film It's the " Great Pumpkin" , Charlie Brown is in ninth place and crime flick New " Jack City" takes tenth place on the list.
