Tuesday 07 June 2011
Headlines and announcements originating from two big technology events are filling Twitter's most talked about trends on the morning of June 7.
Twitterers are talking about the opening keynote at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference on June 6.
The company is waving goodbye to its MobileMe service and will welcome in the cloud-based era with over-the-air synchronizing through iCloud and free photo, text and video messaging for iOS devices with "iMessage."
"Probably my favorite part of today's keynote was how Steve Jobs expressed his sheer hatred for MobileMe. 'It wasn't our finest hour,'" commented microbloggers using the fourth place term "MobileMe."
Sony is also gaining attention on Twitter after announcing the name and price of its next generation portable, "PlayStation Vita," at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3).
"#mydreamjob" takes the number one position in Twitter's list of most talked about topics and is followed by "#thingsthatdontmakesense" in third place and "JUSTIN BIEBER WON" in fifth place.
The name of Australian comedian "Austen Tayshus" is new in sixth place, the name of Australian cricketer Simon "Katich" is in seventh place and the name of British TV presenter "Jeremy Kyle" is in ninth place.
