Current Twitter trends: 'scary places,' Justin Bieber, iPad
Tuesday 23 February 2010
NowPlaying is the most talked about topic on Twitter on the morning of February 23.
In third position is the "scaryplaces" hashtag. Microbloggers are using the term to describe the places that scare them.
Some "scary places" Twitter users are mentioning are: "on the receiving end of a phone conversation with [American comedian] Chris Tucker," "the small world ride at Disneyland" and "the USA with Sarah Palin as President."
The name of Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber has risen by five places on Twitter's chart of most talked about topics. A video of an emotional three-year-old girl crying over Justin Bieber has been uploaded onto YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTCm8tdHkfI) and Twitter users are helping it spread.
Apple's latest touch screen device, the iPad, has been a nearly constant fixture in Twitter's trending topics since Steve Jobs unveiled the product in January.
One of the main reasons for this is the ongoing debate over why Apple refuses to allow its portable touchscreen devices to use Adobe's Flash technology. The recently published article, "Adobe Flash developer on why the iPad can't use Flash,"on tech site RoughlyDrafted Magazine has been generating positive comments via the social network on February 23.
