Top Ten!

As the end of the year looms closer, experts in all aspects of technology begin to release their top 10 lists of the year 2010.  Top ten blogs, top ten viral videos, top ten memes are all a buzz on the Internet, but my favorite and the top ten I had been waiting for was this years top ten Twitter Trends.

As Stan Schroeder of Mashable writes, “Twitter’s top 10 overall trends actually paint quite a good picture of what the world was interested in in 2010; definitely more then than Google’s list of the fastest rising search topics.”

Here is the full list:

1. Gulf Oil Spill
2. FIFA World Cup
3. Inception
4. Haiti Earthquake
5. Vuvuzela
6. Apple iPad
7. Google Android
8. Justin Bieber
9. Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows
10. Pulpo Paul

In all honesty, this list makes complete sense to me as the World Cup dominated the world sports scene, Inception dominated in the box office and BP dominated the Gulf coast (in a terrible way).  The only left field trends that I did not foresee was the popularity of Pulpo Paul the World Cup Oracle Octupus and the vuvuzela.  I guess they are infectiously annoying both virtually and in reality.

What trends do you think would have made this list?  What doesn’t belong here?

Until next time buyers, sellers and friends!

    What doesn’t belong includes the royal engagement and the list of people which is appalling. It should be more reflective of those news makers who shape history not pop culture!

      To argue the counter side of that, the engagement of Prince William is pretty important, while not to us US citizens, to the European community and England itself. In regards to the list of people, while I would arrange the list differently in accordance to importance I still think looking at that list you get a very good look at what remains important to the virtual individuals.
