The Spice Girls, NewsCorp, ANC and #RememberTheTime: Why are they trending?
The Spice Girls
There’s much Twitter excitement over the announcement that 90s pop group, The Spice Girls will be reuniting to celebrate the launch of a new musical featuring their songs. @victoriabeckham tweeted “Travelling to London today! Song of the day ‘Spice Up Your Life’!!”
Perhaps inspired by the Spice Girls reunion, or the Michael Jackson single of the same name, Twitter is indulging in a some collective nostalgia this morning.
The beleaguered media conglomerate is trending, but this time it’s not a phone hacking story that’s got people talking. Murdoch and his advisors are reportedly considering splitting the company in two, separating the publishing business from its entertainment assets.
#ANCPolicy / Zuma
The South African president and ANC party leader is back in the news again after making headlines earlier this month when his party demanded the removal from an exhibition of a painting which depicted the president with his genitals hanging out. Today he is making a speech to the ANC Policy Convention.
At Turkey’s request NATO allies are consulting on the shooting down of a Turkish aircraft by Syria. @Msintervention tweets “#NATO allies will express political support only. Not good enough aka. Go on #Assad! We still don’t care.”Tagged in: ANC and #RememberTheTime, NATO, NewsCorp, spice girls, trending
