Justin Bieber, supreme overlord of Twitter, retains his iron grip on a fairly stable list of popular topics. With a few caveats, not much has changed since last week’s list of trends. NBA playoffs and NFL draft picks set the sports world abuzz, while the UK elections crept ever closer with a third and final televised debate.
Interestingly, two more Korean bands enjoyed a surge of Twitter popularity and joined the mainstay Super Junior on this week’s chart. This is certainly indicative of where a good number of tweets are coming from these days. It remains to be seen if these young rising stars from Asia stand to give Bieber a run for his money.
Below is the top 10 list, courtesy of our friends at What The Trend. Because this is a topical list, hashtag memes and games have been omitted from the chart.
