Where were you when you learned the death of Amy Winehouse? I was at a hair dresser going through my twitter stream as I was waiting for my turn. Incredible that even BBC or any other news site was not covering the shocking news. News of Amy Winehouse’s tragic death hit Twitter 20 minutes after she was found dead in her North London flat. “Amy Winehouse” rapidly became one of Twitter’s trending topics, representing nearly 10% of all tweets worldwide – with approximately 20 million people communicating with each other about her death. It only took twitter to respond to the death of the singer in less then an hour. Last week, I was surprised to see Abercrombie & Fitch and Jersey Shore as a trending topic. I found it quite hilarious that teen apparel retailer Abercrombie & Fitch Co. is offering to pay Michael “The Situation” Sorrentino not to wear its merchandise. The reaction of the twitter crowd was really interesting to follow. Do you think that’s bad PR from Abercrombie & Fitch or they got some great publicity out of this. I am glad I am not in their target age group 😉 and do not even watch Jersey Shore and never witnessed Mr. Sorrentino lifting up his shirt off to reveal his abdomen muscles while flashing A&F branded underwear. It feels like Justin Bieber is always trending at twitter don’t you agree? This time though it was because his fans tweeted his full name Justin Drew Bieber. How so sweet 🙂 There are different ways to check what’s currently trending .
