The year 2010 is about to end, and of course the year will not end without looking back on the best and the worst things that happened for the whole year. You will know if the event is the best or the worst if people all around the globe are talking about it. Now, thank you to the Social Media Networking called Twitter for making it possible for us to identify what are the most talked about topics for the whole year.
I have here the list of top trending topics in Twitter, this could be a good measure about what’s hot and what’s not in the year 2010.
1. Gulf Oil Spill
Number 1 on the list is all about the Gulf Oil Spill. This is rather a tragedy than an event. The damage of this oil spill over Mississippi river is undeniable and people around the globe are pretty much concern, that is the reason maybe it has become the most talk about topic in Twitter.
2. FIFA World Cup
Africa, Shakira, football. Who can forget the most exciting and the most anticipated sport event of the year? The World Cup 2010 has opened the eyes of all the people to the beauty of Africa.
I never expected this movie will be on the top three of the most talk about topics in 2010. The movie is thought provoking, hence the cause of the discussion over Twitter.
4. Haiti Earthquake
This is I think the most disappointing tragedy of the year, of course, the earthquake that happened in Haiti. Thousands of lives and livelihood were devastated because of this.
I am not familiar about this, but my search says that this is that buzzing sound during the FIFA World Cup in Africa. Oh, that annoying sound.
6. Apple iPad
The journey of tablet computer has begun this year. Thanks to Apple iPad for spearheading the technology. There are a lot of comments on the web, either negative or positive.
7. Google Android
Google never fails to provide new applications to the users. The Google Android take it on the 7th spot.
8. Justin Bieber
Considered the fastest rising star, Justin Beiber is the 8th trending topic in Twitter. Thanks to all his teenage supporters. Justin Beiber’s spot may represent the voice of the youth.
9. Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows
The first part of the last installment of Harry Potter has also created some noise over Twitter.
10. Pulpo Paul
And of course, who can forget Paul the Octopus? He is that psychic Octopus who was able to predict the winner for the FIFA World Cup 2010. Sad to say, Paul the Octopus died later this year.
