In 2010 more than 25 billion tweets were sent and now Twitter has analyzed all of those Tweets to create their list of the top tweeted trends in the Twitterverse.
The micro-blogging site then went one step further and broke the top 10 trending topics into eight categories: news events, people, movies, television, technology, World Cup, sports and hashtags.
As expected the Gulf Oil Spill took the number one spot, while Apple made it in with their massively successful Apple iPad and of course Justin Bieber who dominates Twitter also made the cut. Showing the popularity of the relatively new mobile OS, Google Android also found it’s own spot.
Here are the top 10 overall trending Tweet topics in 2010:
1. Gulf Oil Spill
2. FIFA World Cup
4. Haiti Earthquake
6. Apple iPad
7. Google Android
8. Justin Bieber
9. Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows
10. Pulpo Paul
You can find trends for each category at Twitter’s trending microsite.
