Here are this week’s Top 10 twitter trends:
1. The World Cup T-20
This has been the most used hash tag in India on twitter for the past few weeks. This week, India’s World cup campaign ended in the Super Eight stage and later, all the teams from India’s group were knocked out in the semi-final stage. The final would take place between Sri Lanka ad West Indies.
The cricket fever reaches a new height among Indians when there is a match between the arch rivals India and Pakistan. India humiliated Pakistan in their super eight tie during the ongoing T20 World Cup by winning the match by 8 wickets.
India won their last group match against South Africa, but only to exit from the tournament. India needed to stop SA 31 runs short of their own score, but managed to win only by 1 run.
4. #Kejriwal (Kejriwal’s party)
Arvind Kejriwal finally announced the formation of his political party on the Gandhi Jayanti. “Media calls it my party, but it is your party”, told Kejriwal. ‘Kejriwal’ was sued very frequently among Twitter users in India this week.
5. Allegations on #DLF and Mr. Vadra
Arvind Kejriwal made a serious allegation on the real estate company DLF and Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra. Kejriwal claimed that DLF gave interest free loan of Rs. 65 crore to Mr. Vadra and some pieces of land were also given to him at throwaway prices. However, DLF have denied all the claims.
6. Release of English #Vinglish
Sridevi has returned to the big screen after a gap of 15 years. The release of the film ‘English Vinglish’ marks the return of the actress to the Bollywood. The word ‘Vinglish’ remained one of the most used words on Twitter.
7. Allegations on #Sonia Gandhi’s Travel Expenses: 1800 crore
Congress is in deep waters, and its troubles are increasing everyday with more and more political attacks. Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi alleged that Rs. 1800 crore was spent on Sonia Gandhi’s travel expenses. Modi said this quoting RTI replies from Indian embassies located in various countries. The word ‘Sonia’ remained one of the most used words.
8. Jairam Ramesh’s remark: There are more #temples in the country then toilets
Had this been a remark on Masjids, there would have been widespread outrage in the country. But no protest was seen when rural development minister Jairam Ramesh made a statement that ‘there are more temples in the country than toilets’. Along with BJP, Congress retracted back at this comment too saying Congress respects all religions and this was a very careless remark from Ramesh’s side.
This was a hash tag widely used to express what one wished in October. A hash tag used just for fun!!
This tag was widely used to update about the traffic on various roads. Know the traffic before you go out. Really useful, isn’t it?
