Current Twitter trends: Rebecca Black, Holi
Friday 18 March 2011
Twitterers are continuing the trend of sharing the three words they live by on the morning of March 18 with the number one hashtag "#threewordstoliveby."
Orange County eighth grader and YouTube sensation "Rebecca Black" has moved up to second place in Twitter's most talked about topics today.
The YouTube video clip for her song "Friday" has been watched by more than 14 million people and Twitterers are chanting the simplistic lyrics "Fun Fun Fun."
Third, fourth and fifth places are filled with the terms"#r1moremoyles," "#enunmundoperfecto" and "White People Stink."
The name of recently deceased rapper "Nate Dogg" moves up one position to number six and ninth place term "Leprechaun" is left over from Thursday's St Patrick Day celebrations.
"Holi," a colorful religious festival traditionally celebrated by Hindus in India, Nepal and Sri Lanka in spring, is in tenth place. Microbloggers are wishing each other a "Happy Holi" for this weekend and joking about who they are going to spray with colored water.
