Current Twitter trends: Follow Friday, Nick Griffin, Windows 7
Friday 23 October 2009
"Follow Friday" is the most talked about topic on Twitter on the morning of October 23.
Every Friday people suggest their friends follow other influential microbloggers and include the term #Follow Friday.
Tweets about Nick Griffin, chairman of the British National Party (BNP) are condemning the British politician for his racist and homophobic beliefs. On October 22, Griffin appeared on the BBC's Question Time political debate program, prompting demonstrations outside of the London TV studio in protest of his views.
One Twitter user expressed his disdain for Griffin writing, "Wow, homophobic and a racist. Nick Griffin doesn't do himself any favours really."
The long-standing debate between Apple and PC fans has been reanimated by the release of both Windows 7 and new iMacs. Apple has started heavily campaigning against Microsoft's Windows 7 with a new set of TV ads slamming PCs for their "constant operating problems," while Microsoft has launched its own TV campaign with a set of seven-second ads showing how fast and simple their new operating system is.
People on Twitter are also holding flags for either the Microsoft or Apple brand camp with users posting comments like, "There's no need anymore to be ashamed of being a PC owner thanks to Windows 7" and "Apple fires back, best commercial ever it made my day + put a big grin on my face" and "windows 7 seems great compared to vista in the same way obama seems great compared to bush. but in reality.. neither are that great."
