Twitter just released their top trends for this year, and it gives a very good idea of what happened in 2010. 25 Billion tweets were sent in 2010, and Twitter is nice enough to give us the categories on their #Hindsight2010 page. Looking at these, its pretty obvious that Twitter is becoming an excellent form of up to the minute news aggregation.
The World Cup was also a big deal on Twitter – with “Vuvuzela” featuring in the top trends. Sorry, no #Jujufriday!
