Every day on Twitter there are ten trending topics. A trending topic means many people are writing about something and adding an identical hashtag. Because this is all very abstruce, we’re introducing a daily guide to trending topics. Here are your trending topics for Monday, May 7, 2012.
Teen Wolf Trailer
This is a promoted topic for a fairly mediocre television series on MTV which premieres its second season June 5th. The television show features a teen wolf named Scott who plays lacrosse and likes a girl named Allison. Here is the trailer so you needn’t watch the show. Although, in many ways, adolescent boys are just like werewolves anyway: hard-to-control urges, slobbering, bacne—so as a roman à clef, the series is especially incisive.
2 Chainz, aka Tity Boi aka Tausheed Evans, is a Georgia-based rapper with a unique cadence. This meme involves speculating on what Mr. Evans might say in any given situation. Sadly, a lot of this meme has become just retweeting 2Chainz lyrics. This sort of misses the point. It’s the difference between speculating what Jesus would do in a situation (a.k.a. missing the 1 train) and pure biblical exegesis, that is, what Jesus actually did.
A straight-forward meme of words one doesn’t wish to hear since they might indicate some sort of personal shortcoming. Perhaps surprisingly, there’s nothing ironic about this thread.
Combinations of words and short phrases that indicate an unhealthy obsession with food that an overweight person might use as a password. Interestingly: Avril Lavigne (@WeLoveAvril) does not like this trending topic.
