Twitter gets a bad rap sometimes because it seems unnecessary and a lot of the time it is. Though it can be useful too, especially in identifying breaking news or cultural trends. This is what makes trending topics on Twitter one of the most fascinating parts of the website.
The trending topics are the most talked about ideas on Twitter at the moment, ranked regionally all the way from worldwide down to countries and cities. Trending topics can be formed just based on the content of a tweet, but the most common way of marking a tweet as part of a trending topic is the hashtag. One of my favorites topics/hashtags (although an old one) is #firstworldproblems, which is how people can identify their not-so-important problems. It doesn’t have the momentum now to be a top 10 topic in any region, but if I think of a funny one, I’ll post it anyways.
Now, I didn’t just write all this up because I’m in love with Twitter or anything. I bring it up because I want to have a little fun with it. I think, given enough tries, I could get a topic to trend (at least in some region). So, starting next Tuesday and every Tuesday afterwards (for as long as I feel like it), I’m going to propose a new hashtag. I’ll make a post here with the new hashtag and a brief explanation of what’s going on, but I won’t get too specific so people will be creative about it. I hope you’ll all join me on Twitter and come back next week for the details!
