Death, Cheese & $1.5 Billion: What's Trending on Twitter

Sometimes I like to browse the trending topics on Twitter and learn things about society at the current moment. I get some current events, learn some new information and make some stuff up. I also find some hilarious people to follow. I have such a love/indifferent relationship with Twitter, so I'm trying to use it more.  Here are 10 things I saw trending on twitter this week.

#alanrickman - This one made me sad because he passed away this week. He has been in so many awesome movies - Harry Potter is my favorite. RIP.

#bigblockofcheeseday - You can imagine my excitement when I discovered this was a thing. Good thing we went to Costco last week and bought a giant block of Vermont White Cheddar. I ate part of that for dinner and it was incredible.
#chrischristie - I'm not watching the debate tonight because I didn't feel like it. I'd rather watch the last episode of season 1 of True Detective. However, I'm trolling Twitter and it appears the governor of my lovely state is talking bridges and planned parenthood. I'm sure it went great.

#davidbowie - If you haven't seen this news by now, you are missing something. Cancer takes people too soon. David Bowie was an incredibly talented human and someone that made it so cool to be different.



#oscarnoms - Don't care about any of them other than Leo. I just want him to win and I haven't even seen the movie. I love movies, but I like to be entertained by them - Star Wars wins for me this year.

#ifihadabilliondollars - Who didn't spend at least a few minutes this week imagining what they would do with that money? I know people that didn't even buy a ticket and still spent a few minutes day dreaming. I would buy a few places to spend my time at, a farm for animals that need homes, everything on my pinterest board and probably give everything else away.

#ididntwinpowerballsonow - Keep your effing job. Duh. But also, treat yourself to whatever bottle of wine won't break your bank account and save your pennies for the next lottery record.

#alittleknownfactabout - There were some hilarious facts under this hashtag. I couldn't pick my favorites. I have one: a little known fact about flamingos is that there are more fake ones in the world than real ones.

#bachelor - I just can't watch it. I tried once. Also, #deathofabachelor is now trending... but I think that's unrelated.

#SOTU - I wish there would have been a real mic drop. I hope I live to see that happen.


So, what do you think about our week in twitter? Who are your favorite people to follow? Any big plans for this weekend? I hope they involve a giant block of cheese.

  1. I have not trolled twitter via hashtag this week. Last week I was trolling for Ken Kratz and dying laughing at many hateful tweets. You reap what you sow.

    Totally digging big block of cheese.

  2. Give me ALL the cheese! Everything sounds delicious to me these days though....

    Your little known fact made me laugh and also say "huh, who knew?!"!

    My plans? Watching the CAPS beat up on the Rangers ;) I'm sure I just jinxed them.

  7. Lots of sad news this week! I was incredibly sad to hear about Alan Rickman. Honestly, I don't remember the last time I watched The Bachelor. Maybe when it first came out haha. I'm afraid to see what it's like.

  9. ha! An Obama mic drop would be amazing, lol. Also, Alan Rickman was the saddest news~ Especially because we had no warning, like the public didn't even know he was ill. Ugh, so sad. He was such a great actor.

  10. I'm on Twitter a lot and it's amazing what you see on there. Non stop. David Bowie and Alan Rickman passing were both sad.

    Rickman in Galaxy Quest was the best.
