On the morning of April 7 "#NowPlaying" is still fixed in the top spot on Twitter's most talked about topics list. The continually popular term is used to share the names of songs and movies people are listening to while posting on the microblogging site.

"#ThisIsMyDream" is in second place on the charts this morning as people use their 140 characters to express their dreams and hopes.

My dream is to: "eat anything without fear of being fat," "have a debut album," "have a house like a castle," and "make my parents proud of me" say Twitter users.

"Ever feel like"... "Crocs shoes should only be worn if you're working for a hurricane relief effort," "the one guy you want will never want you back," or "a relationship is kinda over but u still want the person in your life so you try to keep it alive?" ask microbloggers using the "EverFeelLike" hashtag to see if there is anyone else in the Twittersphere feeling the same way they do.

Twitter is abuzz with people talking about the web-based royalty-free image company iStockphoto. The user-generated stock image site is offering prizes to people who tweet about the company on Twitter in celebration of its 10th birthday. The high volume of competition-related tweets have resulted in "#iStock10" reaching the fourth position in Twitters trending topics.
