Top 10 Twitter Trends This Week [CHART]

American pop music has loosened its grip on the top Twitter trends and yielded to the news of populist uprisings in Libya, which have been fueled in part by social media themselves. The Libyan protests hit the number one spot on our chart this week as tweeters fervently discuss the future of democracy in the Arab world.

Meanwhile, as Britney, Gaga and Bieber tussled for Twitter clout these past few weeks, the one-year anniversary of the music video “Baby” propelled the pop prince to the fore. Bieber grabbed the number two spot, with Gaga trailing closely behind at number three.

The NBA All-Star Game and the ongoing political upheaval around public worker unions in Wisconsin round out the week’s top Twitter chatter.

For the full list of top trends, check out the chart below, compiled by our friends at What the Trend. Because this is a topical list, hashtag memes and games have been omitted from the chart.
