Twitter index: David and Victoria Beckham name their daughter, Dell's "sperm" tablet
Monday 11 July 2011
Former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham has given birth to a baby girl and Tweeps are spreading the news, announcing she will be called "Harper Seven Beckham."
Twitterers are making light of the "strange name," tweeting, "Can't believe the number of RTs for Harper Seven Beckham - HSB. If she marries a Clark she could become HSBC - don't bank on it though!," "Honestly, Harper Seven Beckham?? I wonder if celebs just randomly pick words out of a dictionary when naming their kids?" and "Harper Seven Beckham, i like it :-) born at 7am, 7th month, 7lbs and David's number is 7 :D."
Twitterers note that a hacker has overtaken British footballer David Beckham's official website, http://www.davidbeckham.com/, too. An image of a dog sniffing at a dog food advertisement is currently appearing at the top of the website.
Microbloggers are also joking about the name of the Dell "Peju" tablet, an unreleased Windows 8 mobile device from Dell.
Indonesian-speaking microbloggers are giggling like school girls as they tweet "Peju means sperm" and "Before you've tried it, it's best not to judge the Dell Peju. That would be premature."
"#designstar" is in first place on Twitter's list of most talked about topics, promoting the American reality TV show and design competition HGTV Design Star. The hashtags "#improvefilmtitlesbyaddinginmypants" and "#whoeverimarry" fill the following two positions.
The Russian word for Bulgaria ("????????") is eighth on the chart, the MTV show "Parental Control" is in ninth place, and the wrongly spelled title of the movie Forrest Gump is in tenth place.
