The No. 1 trending topic on Twitter in 2010 wasn’t Team Coco, FIFA World Cup or even Justin Bieber. According to Twitter’s analysis, “Gulf Oil Spill” was the most popular trend of this year’s 25 billion tweets, pushing environmental topics mainstream and chipping away from the former “nonprofit-worker-turned-hippie-activist” stereotype.
