Current Twitter trends: "It's not okay," "now playing," "I love it when"
Wednesday 30 December 2009
Twitter users have been discussing the moral implications of a wide range of subjects on the morning of December 30, using the meme "#itsnotokay," which became the top trending topic.
The meme "it's not okay (#itsnotokay)" started with a tweet about children sold into prostitution, but Twitterers quickly moved on to other topics, with many tweets involving (consensual) sexual practices or just displaying some quick twitter wit.
A micro-blogging Casanova wrote, "#itsnotokay to try to seduce girls on twitter unless they don't mind being seduced, that being said- Hello Ladies lolz." Another user tweeted, "#itsNOTokay to friend request your mom on facebook," while someone else moaned, "#itsNOTokay 4 a 45 yearold man to sit up and play xbox until 3am."
Twitterers continue to share their musical tastes, using the term "#nowplaying."
The term "I love it when (#iloveitwhen)" hasn't moved from the third place of the trending topics list, and garners more positive tweets than the "#itsnotokay" meme. One contemplative user wrote, "#iloveitwhen it snows :)."
Other trending topics that may require an explanation include "NYE" (New Year's Eve), "#jonasmemories" (by which users share their stories about the Jonas Brothers), and "Gurita Cikeas," a book that was banned in Indonesia about the Century Bank Scandal.
