Each Friday I’ll be analyzing Twitter’s tweet trends as after a busy week people, generally, like to take to the internet to bitch, moan, or commentate on world goings-on. Here are your tweet trends for Friday, March 1st:
#JediMindMeld – President Barack Obama yesterday, speaking on something related to budget, American debt, or something else equally unimportant to the average man, uttered the phrase “Jedi mind-meld” with reference to his desired ability to become one-minded with people that are opposing his relatively rational strategies. The problem? The term ‘jedi’ is from Star Wars whereas ‘mind meld’ belongs in the Star Trek universe. Whoops. Comedian Rob Delaney no likey:
… but would a Jew-Pope with a lightsaber be acceptable?
#weakfor – while most people took this as an opportunity to express their increasingly terrible ideas of romanticism (see: “#weakfor him when he smiles that sweet smile at me”), tweeter Becky Riley opted for a, well, better approach:
Like, “orca” fat.
#NileRanger – Newcastle United’s former English footballer was all the rage on Twitter Friday as well, as news of his departure from the club spread like wildfire across the Twittersphere. Ranger, at only 21, is famous for his multiple run-ins with the law including, but not limited to, robbery, assault, drunk&disorderly, homophobic slurs, and criminal damage. Fans, devastated by his departure, have tweeted such things as the following:
“That sonovabitch burned my house down!”
#DancePonyDance – UK mobile-device company Three launched a new ad campaign recently featuring a dancing pony In one of England’s more scenic locales. Three’s official twitter account paid homage to the screaming goat and sneezing panda before it, tweeting the following:
Credit where credit is – BAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!
After first post this video link was changed to an AD for Three Network. Shame on you, 3.
#BeliebersHatePaparazzi– And, finally, Justin Bieber’s 19th birthday has been ruined by a combination of security at the nightclub he attended in London, his good friend Lil Twist (wtf?) getting pulled over by cops in Bieber’s $100 000 hybrid Fisker Karma for making an ‘unsafe lane change’ and, of course, the paparazzi. Like all good followers, Bieber’s famed (and terrible) ‘Beliebers’ took to twitter using the previously mentioned hashtag and had much bitching and moaning to do. Ugh.
I ask you, does this man LOOK irresponsible? Case closed.
That’s it for this week, folks – see you next Friday with next week’s tweet-trends!
