Twitter Trending Topics
Locating Twitter trending topics, also referred to simply as “TT,” is easier than you may think. Whether you want to stay up to date on the latest topics or you intend to write about the subjects receiving the most hype throughout the day on the Twitter social network, learning where to find Twitter trending topics can be an entertaining and useful asset. Although you do not need a Twitter account to view the latest Twitter trending topics, as they are displayed on the homepage of the site in a continually updated stream, the ability to sign into an account allows you to view trending topics immediately without waiting for the stream to scroll across the page. Once you have a way to visit the Twitter website, you can easily find the Twitter trending topics for the day by following these steps.
To find Twitter trending topics, you will need:
- An Internet connection, or a mobile device capable of surfing the Web.
- Surf over to the Twitter website, and sign-in if you have an account. Locate the scrolling text on the homepage if you do not have an account. The scrolling text includes the latest trending topics.
- If you sign into an account, look on the right-hand side of your screen on the homepage. On the left, you will see your activity timeline, which has all the recent tweets from accounts you subscribe to by “following” the user. The right-hand side has a portion clearly labeled “Trends.” By default, the Twitter trending topics displayed are worldwide; you can change this to a specific country by selecting the “Change” option.
- You can now note the ten latest trending topics. Only eight to nine trends are a reflection of non-paid popular keywords. You can click on the word to search for tweets featuring that phrase or #hashtag. The top trend often has a “Promoted” icon beside it. This means is a trend purchased from Twitter for advertising purposes, often by music labels or television companies, and it does not reflect a trend made popular by the general public.
