The Stone Roses, Bob Diamond, David Beckham and #ICan’tDateYou: Why are they trending?
The Stone Roses
The Madchester heroes are the resurrection, and are currently resurrecting former glories on tour, with hometown dates over the weekend. @Johnny_Marr tweets “The claim made in this months Q Magazine of me offering to join the Stone Roses is of course total nonsense.” Shame.
Libor / Bob Diamond / #Barclays
Three of Twitter’s trending search terms today are related to the revelations regarding wrongdoings at Barclays. There are fresh allegations against the bank today and Bob Diamond is resisting calls for his resignation. @TheSimonEvans writes “’Pressure is mounting on Bob Diamond.’ The fools! How do they think he was formed in the first place?”
Shock! Horror! David Beckham has not been selected for England’s Olympic squad. Becks himself is far too rich and handsome to care, but his internet supporters are leaping to his defence. From @johnprescott “David Beckham deserves to be in Team GB. Played a crucial part in the bid & least he’d be good at penalties!
This trending hashtag is giving Twitterteens the opportunity to broadcast their bizarrely high dating standards into the void. @cheerleadinglove says “#ICan’tDateYou if you don’t think cheeleading is a sport #sorrynotsorry”Tagged in: barclays, bob diamond, cheerleader, David Beckham, london olympics 2012, The Stone Roses
