Twitter index: Twitterers morn the death of Flip cameras
Wednesday 13 April 2011
"Lil Flip" might be the stage name of American rapper Wesley Weston, Jr. but today Twitterers are using the term to morn the death of Cisco's Flip brand of handheld digital videocams.
"Lil Flip" entered Twitter's most talked about topics after people on Twitter mistook trending term "RIP Flip" to mean Lil Flip had died. "So lil flip aint dead they talking bout the flip camera. i think im ever more hurt now. i shouldnt be alone right now," say Twitterers using the fifth place term.
The name of 65-year-old singer "Dolly Parton" is trending in seventh place after she suggested during an interview that she would like to sing a duet with Lady Gaga. Twitterers are also chatting about the songstress's "tweaked" appearance, her new album of original tracks and her forthcoming world tour.
"In case you missed it" post microbloggers, "Hugh Grant, citizen journalist, bugs phonetapping pap, names Wade and Coulson http://bit.ly/ik7VVV" pointing their followers towards Hugh Grant's article in the NewStatesman.
Lady Gaga is pointing her fans in the direction of her YouTube page (http://www.youtube.com/user/ladygagaofficial) with ninth place term "Gagavision" as she gets ready to release GagaVision No.42, the next video in a series that describes "the world according to Gaga."
"Black Thoughts" 2, the name of American rapper Tyga's latest mixtape, is in sixth place, and the name American retail chain "Wal-Mart" is in tenth place.
