Twitter users are again celebrating "Follow Friday" this morning, with #FF and #FollowFriday taking first and fourth place respectively in the trending Twitter topics. In second place, the music-related "nowplaying" hashtag remains as popular as ever.

Romance is also hot this morning (perhaps it's the first signs of spring in the northern hemisphere), with retweets from @TheLoveStories (#TLS) account in third place and "I heart" in fifth. Amongst things that are most loved this morning? French kissing, future wives and Sandra Bullock - in no way related, of course.

"#SometimesIWonder," a collection of the world's disparate thoughts, is the sixth trending topic while "Earth Hour 2010" takes seventh. Thousands of towns and cities in 125 countries have pledged to turn off the lights at 8:30 PM local time on March 27, in a move that organizers describe as a "24-hour wave of hope and action."

iPad fever takes eighth place, with excited Apple addicts around the globe tweeting "Here are some games" that they're most looking forward to. The frenzy appears to have been started by social media blog Mashable, which published a preview of iPad-ready games March 26 (http://mashable.com/2010/03/26/games-ipad-approved).

Tween pop rounds off the list, with fans of K-pop star Wonbin tweeting "#wonbincomeback" in ninth place, and fans of the Canadian teen sensation exclaiming, "Oh my Justin Drew Bieber, yeah" in tenth.
