On the morning of June 4 microbloggers are asking their friends "#areyoureallystill..." as the term becomes the most talked about topic on Twitter. 

Are you really still: "Not following anybody back? You know you're just a regular person right?", "wearing superman underwear over the age of 20" or "awake? Yeah, me too" ask Twitter users with the "areyoureallystill" hashtag.

In second place is the meme "#nawimstraight." Users are using the term to tweet about the things they wouldn't do fearing it might give others the impression that they are no longer heterosexual.

People are wishing Zac Farro, the drummer from American rock band Paramore, a happy birthday with the meme that is now in third place, "#happybdayzacfarro."

"Golden Girls" actress Rue McClanahan (who played Blanche Devereaux on the show) passed away on June 3. Her name is trending in fourth place on the charts ahead of "Joran", short for the name of alleged Dutch murderer, Joran van der Sloot.

"Oil Spill" moves up two places to number six while the name of Japan's newly elected prime minister "Naoto" Kan is new on the charts in seventh place.

The Lakers just won the first game of the NBA Finals against their archrivals from Boston, which explains why "NBA Finals" and "Lakers won" are trending in eighth and ninth place respectively.

"Follback" is back in the charts in tenth place as people on Twitter encourage others to follow them back.
