Gulf oil spill was the top Twitter trend in 2010

Twitter introduced its list of its prime trends for 2010 on Monday. The list of trends, capped by "Gulf oil leak," summarize how information flowed on the Internet in 2010. Twitter said its 2010 Styles on Twitter list shows exactly how Twitter has evolved to the leader in connecting the planet to emerging styles in real-time. This trends list did not essentially make Twitter money and they did not need to take out a cash advance to publish it.

The prime tweets Twitter has seen

You will find very expected subjects of the prime Twitter tweets of 2010. These subjects include the Apple ipad, Justin Bieber and the Gulf oil spill. The 2010 Trends on Twitter, compiled from 25 billion 2010 tweets, consist of eight categories: news, people, movies, TV, technology, world cup, sports and hashtags. Although gulf oil leak was first for overall prime pattern, there was a runner up. "FIFA World Cup" was this win. Bieber was on the top of the list, ahead of Lady Gaga remarkably. Lady Gaga actually came in 3rd after Dilma Rouseff. Assange was after Lady Gaga. The iPad capped the technology list and “Inception” capped the film list. On the Planet Cup list, Paul the Octopus was edged out by the ubiquitous, annoying Vuvuzela.

Exactly how Twitter styles are decided on

In a Twitter post, the business explained what it does. Novelty is more significant than popularity to Twitter. An algorithm is used to single out topics that get more tweets than normal for any given moment when used which is how Twitter styles are discovered. Instead of just listing what is popular, hot subjects as they emerge are found. On rare occasions a topic that shows up on Google trends doesn’t make it to Twitter trends because the number of tweets does not accelerate quickly enough. This taken place last week with WikiLeaks, leading some bloggers to accuse Twitter of censoring trending tweets. Of course, "WikiLeaks Cablegate" still made it to the top styles of 2010. It was seven in the top 10 trending news tweets.

Way more Twitter tweets this year

There was more than 200 percent growth from 2009 to 2010 in Twitter tweets. The number went from 8 billion to twenty five billion. In 2008, the Twitter tweets were even lower. Only 300 million tweets were counted. In 2006, Twitter was founded. Since them, over 190 million tweeters have joined. In 2008, trending subjects began to be listed by Twitter. This year was the first year Twitter trends were accessible in more than just some major U.S. cities. Before, only cities like WA D.C. and New York City had it accessible to them. The service was expanded this year by Twitter. Now 13 nations and six more cities have the additional service.
