Tuesday 17 November 2009
People in Indonesia have started a Twitter game called "tebak band translate (#tebakbandtranslate)," driving the term into the top of Twitter's trending topics on November 17 at 9:30 AM GMT.
Microbloggers playing the game choose the name of a popular band or a song, translate it into Indonesian and attach the term "#tebakbandtranslate".
One Twitter user suggested a translation of a song by the Fall Out Boys, "Sugar, we're going down - fall out boys #tebaklagutranslate gula, kita ke bawah - lelaki jatuh keluar."
"#theresway2many vampires in this world," say some people on Twitter who are using the term "there's way too many (#theresway2many)" to complain about the things they think could be reduced in number.
Other things people on Twitter would like less of are, "people obviously missing out on the future!", "things I want but can't afford" and "bad movies. hey Hollywood - let's save money by only investing in GOOD plots. enough with the bad horror films and spoofs!"
