Post #46 of #49 – Over the next 24 hours I will be raising funds for the Union Gospel Mission during Blogathon 2009 by writing a blog post every 30 minutes. Please consider donating to my cause to keep my going until 6am PT July 26th.

If you use the popular microblogging service Twitter you’ll notice that it tracks the top trending topics at any given time around the world. These hot topics are listed on the sidebar of your profile page and also on their Search directory.

But what happens when you see 10 topics trending and you have no idea what they mean or what their significance might be? Do what I do and check out What the Trend. Users can update and explain why topics are trending so that you’re not so lost and wondering why “NKOTB” or “cupcakes” are suddenly in the middle of the latest media buzz.
