Twitter Top 10 Trends: Football, Bieber, GaGa & Anthony Feature

It’s that time of the week again, the votes have been counted and the Twitter trending topics has been rolled up into a chart by Mashable’s Matt Silverman. This is a weekly chart that OSM reports on where we check out what is being talked about on Twitter each week; if you missed last week’s chart then you can check it out by clicking here. Anyway, onto the new Twitter top10 trends which will feature Football, Justin Bieber, Lady GaGa and of course the Casey Anthony trial.

Jumping in at number 10 in the chart we have Wimbledon, the UK Tennis championship which is probably the world’s most famous saw the two week tournament draw to a close with both the men’s and the women’s finals during the week. Petra Kvitova took the title for the females and Novak Djokovic overcame the defending champion Rafael Nadal to take the men’s singles. In 9th spot on the chart we have Glee, this is strange as we aren’t in Glee season but the announcement of cast changes and a kiss on the Glee live tour’s final show caused it to trend.

Hopping into 8th position in the week’s chart is the U.S. July 4th Holiday, Twitter users from the U.S. were celebrating the U.S. Independence Day in a variety of ways. In 7th spot is another specific day, July the 6th has been named International Kissing Day! Twitter users were sent into a bit of a frenzy with this one as many of them were tweeting about it.

The 6th position in the chart this week was an easily predictable one, Lady GaGa. She often trends in Twitter anyway because of her sheer popularity; after all she is the most followed person on Twitter. The thing is, you know when Justin Bieber and Lady GaGa fans are having a pop at each other about popularity they will both trend in the chart that week. The topic we find occupying the 5th spot in the chart is Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows, Part 2. Fans were talking about the world premiere of the film that was shown at Trafalgar Square in London. The public release will be July 15th so not too long to wait.

The topic in 4th position is Phineas & Ferb, this is a Disney movie that will hit us on August 5th, Disney fans have been talking about it for some weeks now but the intensity level is rising as we near the release date. In 3rd spot this week is the pop sensation Justin Bieber, as we mentioned earlier his name is trending partly because his and Lady GaGa’s fans were going at it on Twitter. The Biebster’s fans were making all sorts of different things trend, it looks like he doesn’t even have to go to the dentist anymore to feature in our chart!

Just behind this week’s number one is the Casey Anthony Trial, Twitter went absolutely bananas when it was announced that Casey Anthony was found “Not Guilty” of killing her daughter that was just two years of age. Since then we have seen a couple of counts of Facebook scams using the story as well as images of each of them… Sickening scammers.

Surprise, surprise this week’s top trending topic is Soccer/Football. This has certainly been the biggest trending topic of the year; it simply cannot keep out of the charts. This week footy fans have been tweeting about the Copa America that kicked-off in Argentina. This is expected to be one of the best tournaments in the world because of the abundance of South American talent on show from Brazil and Argentina. Not only that but it’s also the FIFA Women’s World Cup, where England’s ladies are putting the men’s team to shame by reaching the quarter finals.
