Google announced a new Gmail feature called Priority Inbox on August 30 and microbloggers are spreading the news with the term “Priority Inbox.”
The memes "#littleknownfactaboutme," "#somewhere in the world" and "#thisschoolyear" are trending in third, fourth and fifth positions followed by “DWTS,” an acronym for the American reality TV show called Dancing With The Stars.

The term is also being used by spammers trying to encourage users to click on links to websites advertising Viagra for sale. "Fashion Police" is new on the charts in seventh place.
"Franklin Brito," the name of a Venezuelan farmer who died after going on a months-long hunger strike, is in eighth place.
