Current Twitter trends: What's sexy, Bieber wins at the Brits

The microblogs are full with tweets about what's sexy, what's not sexy and what's very sexy on the morning of February 16.

The top three trends in the chart are "#thatssexy," "#notsexy" and "#verysexy" and Twitterers are using them to tweet "A confident woman who is not afraid to be herself, regardless of what others say about her, #thatssexy," "Trying to be somebody you're not is #NotSexy!!! Be you. That's when you're beautiful" and "Independent Women #VerySexy."

Justin Bieber fans are happily filling the microblogs with the term "Justin Won" reiterating the news that the 16-year-old singer won the Brit Award for Best International Breakthrough Act.

People on Twitter are reporting that Justin Bieber tweeted his Call of Duty: Black Ops ("Black Opps") screen name, "Doctorswagger," on his Twitter account when he was bored and couldn't sleep but the tweets have since been removed (or never existed in the first place).

The name of Grammy Award-winning multi-instrumentalist "Esperanza Spalding" retains sixth place in the chart.

The name of CBS's Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent, "Lara Logan," is in ninth place after she "suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating" while covering the resignation of President Hosni Mubarak in Egypt.

"Kimberly Jones," the real name of American rapper Lil' Kim, is in eighth place and the name of Spanish-Mexican journalist Joaquin "Lopez Doriga" is in tenth place.
