Twitter index: Teen Choice Awards nominations announced, French journalists freed
Tweeps are discussing their favorite candidates for the "Teen Choice Awards" on the morning of June 30.
Since the nominees were announced, the microblogs have been filling with posts about which actors, musicians and sports people should win.
"#ANewMcDFavorite" is promoted by fast food chain McDonalds at the top of the chart, while the hashtags "#5thingsyoucantdo," "#ialwayswantedtobea" and "#whatmakesablackgirlmad" fill the following three positions.
Twitter users are looking for "Mrs Right" on the microblogs, but also for the video of American boy band Mindless Behavior's latest single "Mrs. Right."
Rumors that American voice actor Tom Kenny, famous for the voice behind SpongeBob SquarePants, is dead are spreading across Twitter. Some users are fueling the untruths while others try to squash the rumors.
