Twitter index: stop bullying now, cry Twitter users

"Stop Bullying," say hundreds of microbloggers speaking out against bullying on the morning of April 27.

"No one deserves to feel worthless" and "It's not cool. Just makes you a loser" add Twitterers who are standing up to physical, verbal or cyber bullying with the sixth place term.  

"#WinaDroid4G" is promoted in first place and is followed by the hashtags "#wegotogether" and "#youknowuwinning."

"#thevoice," a hashtag associated with a new singing competition judged by Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green airing on American TV network NBC, is in fourth place.

Twitterers are singing their praises of the show, posting "#TheVoice lives up to the hype," "I absolutely loved #thevoice! I think it will be pretty interesting and eventful - especially between the judges" and "Honest #thevoice is way better than Idol. I am honestly blown away by the amazing voices and souls I am hearing."

"Damn Kobe," tweet microbloggers after the Los Angeles Lakers player Kobe Bryant dunked a basketball over New Orleans Hornets center "Emeka Okafor" during an April 26 NBA game.

The name of India's new cricket coach, "Duncan Fletcher," is in fifth place, the wrongly spelled name of American singer Barbra Streisand ("Barbara Streisand") is in ninth place, and deceased Canadian ice hockey player "Luc Bourdon" is in tenth place.
