Current Twitter trends: things that are tacky, 'NowPlaying,' Jaebum

On January 8 Twitter users are tweeting about the things they think are tacky.

"Wearing socks with heels," "wearing ugg boots with a dress" and "coupons at a fine dining joint" are all things people on Twitter think are tacky.

The term "#NowPlaying" has dropped one position to the second spot on Twitter's list of trending topics while the "#omgfacts" meme jumped up three places.

The performing name of South Korean boy band singer Jaebum, formally of 2PM fame, is back in Twitter's list of trending topics on January 8.

People on the microblogging site are posting tweets about the singer, real name Park Jaebeom, hoping that their tweets will encourage him to return to 2PM.

"It has been four months, JaeBum Oppa," wrote one microblogger, "I don't wanna ask when will you come back, but please do come back one day, ok? We'll be waiting."
