Song lyrics from Toronto-based recording artist Drake's latest album, Thank Me Later, have gone to the top of Twitter's trending topics on the morning of June 25. 

The term "#ohyoufancyhuh", the number one trending topic (and also the lyrics from Drake's track "Fancy") are being used to talk about the things people do to make themselves look "fancy."

The hashtags "#whoelselikes" and "showsweneedback" are in second and third place.

The annual National Basketball Association (NBA) draft, an event where teams from the NBA select new players wishing to join the basketball league, is a hotly talked about subject on Twitter this morning. "NBA Draft" is fourth on the list.

"Vuvuzela" has moved up one place overnight to number five. Video hosting site YouTube is now letting people add noisy monotone sounds of the vuvuzela to their video-watching experience with the addition of a soccer ball button on selected videos. Twitter users are making noise on their accounts about the new addition.

Consumers in Europe and Japan spent hours lining up to get their hands on Apple's latest gadget, the iPhone 4 on June 24 and are now talking about their experience with the device. "iPhone4" is in sixth place and the device's operating system, "iOS4" is trending in eighth place.

The name of USA-based electronic dance music festival, Electric Daisy Carnival ("EDC"), held the last weekend of June in California, has taken the seventh spot on the charts. 

"Oil Spill" is back on the charts in ninth place and tennis tournament "Wimbledon" moves down two places to number ten.
