Twitter had a bit of a shakeup this week with some regular and new trends appearing in the top 10 chart. At the summit is the NCAA, after the American college football season started this week. Due to the massive popularity of Football in the U.S, the NCAA was bound to be at the top of the chart due to flooding of Tweets from fans.
