It’s finally come to pass — the Boy King of Twitter, Justin Bieber, has been dethroned by everyone’s favorite egg-themed holiday, Easter, in this week’s trending topics.

We’ve got another insightful glance at the goings-on of the Twitterverse, thanks to our pals at What The Trend. Because this is a topical list, hashtag memes and games have been omitted from the chart below.

As expected, Easter trended heavily, taking the top spot as people celebrated and sent well wishes out to Twitter friends and family. The tradition of Follow Friday also remained high in the ranks, coming in at number three, and Twitter itself took the number four spot, likely due in part to a 20 minute outage on April 5th.

Apple had a big week, and came in at number five on the list. People tweeted vigorously about their brand new iPads (which went on sale last Saturday), or lack thereof. Apple also announced the upcoming release of the iPhone 4.0 OS, slated for release this summer, which will include some long-awaited features like multitasking and app folders.

March Madness held onto the top tends, taking the number six spot as the championship NCAA basketball game was played on Monday, with Duke emerging victorious over Butler in a 61-59 point nail-biter.

Other trends included the Jonas Brothers at number 7 (a Twitter trend mainstay), and the Digital Economy Bill at number eight, which became law in the UK amid some contentious issues about copyright and the ability of ISPs to block access to infringing websites.

Rounding out the list are hip hop artist Nicki Minaj, whose fans retweeted her in droves earlier this week, and the Christian holiday Good Friday.
