Twitter is full of posts wishing both American actor Johnny Depp and the late American jazz guitarist Les Paul a happy birthday on the morning of June 9.
Twitter users are helping the Pirates of the Caribbean actor celebrate his 48th birthday with words of adoration.
Birthday wishes are also in order for legendary guitar player "Les Paul," who would share the same birthday as Johnny Depp were he still alive today. Twitterers are paying tribute to the guitar hero and pointing their followers in the direction of Google's interactive guitar doodle.
"In memory of #lespaul, guitarist and the inventor of Gibson Les Paul series. This guy was a genius," and "Happy 96th birthday Lester William Polsfuss known as #lespaul!" tweet people using the tenth place hashtag "#lespaul."
"#SubwayFan" is promoted in first place, "#whytho" is in third place and "#letsmakelove" fills the fourth position on Twitter's most talked about topics.

The American animated TV series " South Park" and " Family Guy" are in sixth and eighth places, while "#alicebucketlist" is in ninth position.
