#trendingontwitter: GoT, Leggings & Sports

I'm back with another round of twitter hashtags. If you're new here, I just like to round up random trending hashtags on the twitter from the last few days and give you my thoughts. Also, if you're not following me on Twitter yet, you should. Follow me here!

#leggings - Alright, who saw the United Airlines meltdown this week? Long story short, they have a policy for anyone taking advantage of the "employee perks." They decided to turn away middle school girls for wearing "spandex" - no one calls them that anymore - and the internet lost their shit. I take the side of the internet. My job requires lots of conversations about customer service and what they did on social media after the incident was probably not their best move. I wear leggings on 50% of the flights I'm on. If someone told me I couldn't get on a flight, I would probably cry and throw a fit. Insert [eye roll emoji] here. The responses were all pretty good, but this one won.

#Elite8 - Lots of upsets this year. People are comparing it to the election, but it's basketball - not politics, so let's be careful here. I'm happy about the whole thing because I'm in first place currently in our bracket challenge. That has never happened to me before. I'm beyond excited.

#frozenfour - Since we were already talking about college sports, I want to give a shoutout to the University of Minnesota Duluth Bulldogs. That's my school. We only have one D1 sport and it's hockey. I'm so excited that I get to cheer on the Bulldogs next weekend.

#ShotsFired - What a horrible thing to be trending on Twitter. I get a lot of my "breaking news" on Twitter, so when I saw this, my heart dropped instantly. It's a show on Fox. Maybe it's good, I don't know, but I'm mad about their hashtag right now, so I have no interest in giving it a chance.

#PinkOut - Pink took over the internet Wednesday as people stood up and supported Planned Parenthood. I hope that in my lifetime, we can stop having to have this fight. I wore my pink yesterday and made my donation. Must keep swimming.

#Brexit/#Article50 - The day has arrived that negotiations begin. I have learned more about the European Union in the last few months than I ever thought I would. It even makes me think of my economics class in college - something I never thought I would do again. It's a crazy world y'all.

#TrumpCare - If you're reading the news, you will probably already now that they cancelled the vote on repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act this week. I get all kinds of fired up over health care, so I'm just going to leave my favorite tweet in response here:

#GamesofThrones - This was added at the last minute because they released a new promo video today. I'm going to try and wait for Justin to watch it with me... but sometimes I'm kind of an asshole.

Happy Thursday everyone.


  1. i saw the new trailer for GoT and i can't wait for it to start!

  2. The Delta and Bob Menendez tweets were my favorites on those two subjects too!

  3. LOL. I did not see that about United. Jeepers. I flew with them on my first flight to the US and haven't flown with them since. How ridiculous. Go Delta. I only wear leggings on flights now.
    That show on Fox? Seriously? They couldn't think of another name or hashtag? What is wrong with them? Crazy.


Thanks for reading my ramblings. It makes my heart happy.
