Which trend tops your list?

One of Twitter's top trends of 2010

The end of the year is always chock-full of lists. The top films of the year. The top songs of the year. The top news stories of the year. Twitter has announced the top 10 Twitter trends of 2010. Surprisingly, four of the top five trends are about world events, not celebrities. Check out the top five:

1. Gulf oil spill

2. FIFA World Cup

3. Inception

4. Haiti earthquake

5. Vuvuzela

Perhaps the world isn't as vacuous as it sometimes seems.

Check out the rest of the list at the Washington Post.
