Thanks to our friends at What the Trend, we’re able to take a look at that snapshot to see what topics captivated Twitter users the most. Because this is a topical list, hashtag memes are excluded.
What was Hot in the Twitterverse
The top trend of the week, “Valentine’s Day,” benefited both from being a holiday and the title of the number one movie at the box office. likewise, events like the Olympics and the NBA All-Star game ranked highly on the list, as well as holidays like Mardi Gras and Ash Wednesday (or the first day of Lent).
In entertainment, YouTube sensation turned tween-superstar Justin Bieber continues to take over Twitter and the BRIT awards show that Twitter is hardly American-centric.
Google Buzz continues to be a hot topic, as users debate its merits and its potential privacy issues.
