Making it into Twitter's list of popular things to watch and tweet about is American TV sitcom " Will & Grace," animated TV series " Phineas & Ferb," the comedy "Half Baked" and popular Korean TV drama " Naughty Kiss."

Hashtags fill the first three places on Twitter's most talked about topics list and include the terms "#ucanthaveme," "#theydontwantyou" and "#soytanforeveralone."
