Twitter Top 10 Trending Topics Weekly Update

It’s that time of the week again, that’s right… The votes have been counted and tallied up for this week’s Twitter Top 10 trending topics weekly update. Last week’s top dog was April Fool’s Day as many people would have predicted but this week is a bit of a mystery, it’s perhaps not one you could predict.

Some of the things we have come to expect to see are Justin Bieber, Lady GaGa and Soccer Football. They generally float around in the top 10 trends of the week as provided by Matt Silverman of Mashable. Let’s go straight in at number ten with My Chemical Romance, this band has crept into the top 10 mainly because it was Gerard Way’s birthday.

In the 9th spot this week is the NBA, this is partly because of a Tweet from Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder who wrote, “God DAMN Derrick Rose”, which was retweeted many, many times. 8th position in this week’s chart is occupied by MLB; one part of the contribution towards it being in the chart is because Manny Ramirez announced his retirement along with a few other things.

In position 7 is WWE. The reason it is so high up is the World Heavyweight Champion Edge (Adam Copeland) has been forced to retire because of aggravation to an old injury and also many people talking about the next PPV – Extreme Rules! In position 6 we can see Happy Endings which is a new comedy show on ABC and when this started to trend, the Twitterverse started sharing other happy endings that they knew of or had experienced.

The 5th position in the chart is occupied by the Masters Tournament because of it kicking off from the Augusta National Golf Club on April 8th. As always fan favorite Rory McIlroy received a lot of attention. In at number 4 in the chart is one that keeps on popping up… Soccer/Football. This week there’s been a lot talked about to do with a takeover of shares at Arsenal as well as Gary Neville playing in one final match before retiring.

Now we are embracing the top 3 with Dream Concert where people were naming their ultimate artist combinations to create the perfect concert. Make sure you tell us your votes in the comments section at the end of the article of who you would like to see performing together. In 2nd spot is Rihanna / Britney Spears and this is because they have done a duet to a remixed version of Rihanna’s S&M.

Top spot this week goes to Justin Bieber… The Biebster has had a load of his fans around the world tweeting their support after he made a complaint about being harassed in Israel by the paparazzi. It’s good to see him reclaim the throne but will he be there again next week?

What’s surprising about this week’s top 10 is the number of sport related trending topics, exactly half from this week’s chart. We are also expecting to see the Snooker World Championship feature somewhere in next week’s top 10.
