Current Twitter trends: Super Bowl, Gary Moore, Puppy Bowl
Monday 07 February 2011
The NFL Super Bowl is in full swing in the US and Twitter is ablaze with tweets relating to the football game.
"#superbowl" is at the top of the chart while Lil Wayne's remix of "Green & Yellow" has become a Twitter (and Super Bowl) anthem as the Green Bay Packers take the title. "Green & Yellow" is unchanged in sixth place.
Christina Aguilera's shaky rendition of the national anthem during the Super Bowl has "National Anthem" trending in tenth place and Animal Planet's annual "Super Bowl played by puppy dogs" sees "Puppy Bowl" rising into eighth place.
"#idontunderstandwhy" and "#aristegui" are in second and third places on Twitter's list of most talked about topics.
Irish guitarist "Gary Moore" of Thin Lizzy fame was found dead in a hotel room. Twitterers are paying their respects to the legendary guitar player with their 140 characters.
The name of Britney Spears' new album " Femme Fatale" remains unchanged in fifth place, the name of Mexican television company "MVS" is in seventh place, and the name of Polish F1 driver "Robert Kubica" is in ninth place after he was injured in a crash during the Ronde di Andora rally.
