Friday 01 April 2011
Google has launched a radical new way to interact with your email and fast food restaurant Nandos is shutting down, tweet microbloggers playing into the hands of unwary followers on the morning of April 1.
Twitter is filled with users trying to trick their followers into believing their April Fools' Day jokes.
"#aprilfools" has risen to second place while "Aprilscherz," the German word for April Fools, is trending in seventh place.
People are promoting Google's fake motion-controlled email interface with fourth place term "Gmail Motion" and hundreds of microbloggers are complaining about Nandos getting shut down with ninth place term and April Fools joke "Nandos."
"Parents & Facebook is like Pancakes and Ketchup... they dont match" say Twitterers using the fifth place term "Parents & Facebook."
"BREAKING; Blackpool earthquake causes £80,000 worth of improvements," tweet users joking about a 2.2 magnitude tremor in the Blackpool area in the UK.
"#sincewebeinghonest" and "#noonecares" are first and third in the chart, "?Single ?Taken" moves down one place to number six, and Twitter alias of Jamie Laou, a singer dubbed the Australian Justin Bieber, is in eighth place.
