Today’s UK Twitter Trends (Apr. 5): One Direction, Jools Holland
Musicians are trending today on Twitter in the UK — on the one hand, the young band members of a teen sensation, and on the other, a seasoned veteran.
The boy band One Direction broke out big time after competing on The X Factor last year. The group, which has a massive teen girl following, propelled talk show host Alan Titchmarsh to major Twitter trending status yesterday simply because they appeared on his talk show, where they announced that they’re going to be releasing a single in June.
Individual members of the band trended today on Twitter.
1directioners: harry styles, liam payne, niall horan, and lou tomlinson all trended in one day. POWER OF THE 1D FAMILY.
emmasendall1D: i’m not afraid to admit it, I AM OBSESSED WITH ONE DIRECTION
OneD_girls: Excuse for why science homework is not in tomorrow, I was trying to get the boys to trend on twitter!:-).
Jools Holland is trending today because his popular TV show Later…With Jools Holland, is beginning a new series of eight programs tonight on BBC2. Among Holland’s guests were: Elbow, Beady Eye, and Anna Calvi.
