Last night, July 8, a severe thunderstorm tore through Toronto, cutting power to 300,000 and leaving 1,400 passengers stranded for hours on a commuter train filled with gushing water.
Twitter served as a repository for on-the-ground updates and snapshots. An overview, below.
As you’re scrolling through tweets on your phone, do you ever wonder if hashtags like #ILoveYouBut are trending in other parts of the world or if you just live in weird little microcosm?
Thanks to Twitter’s latest iOS and Android app updates, you can confirm or deny this fear with a few screen taps. Though you may not be glad you did.
Some days, Twitter’s trending topics provide a snapshot of what’s wrong with the world, like when #smackthatass or something similar trends. It takes a LOT of participants for it to trend.
But for the most part, Twitter trends track the pulse of the Web. And now advertisers can tap into that phenomenon – and it doesn’t get better than that!
Yes, the headline is just nuts – but so are the people on Twitter, especially those who offer up trending topic tweets.
And today, we see that they’re discussing things they do when they’re bored and they’re also setting the Internets straight on . . . well . . . everything. Both are pretty funny. And yes, we know this is the second time funny trending topics have caught out attention. We apologize and will try to make the next “trending today” focus on serious stuff, like abused puppies or pertussis. Because whooping cough ain’t no joke.
Twitter announced today that it is rolling out a new option for users – tailored trending topics.

But some days, like today, there are some items that catch our eye. You’ll be able to find these posts, highlighting trending topics worthy of your attention, under the “Trending Today On Twitter” category (categories are right above the headline and you can find them via our search section to the right).
Without further ado, we bring you two items that are trending today on twitter, covering two topics everyone will be able to relate to in some way: bacon and weddings.
