7 ways to join Twitter trends


Sometimes when there is nothing else to tweet, we look at the trends list and see what's hot on twitterverse. More often than not, trending topics don't make sense yet a lot of tweeps still end up tweeting about it. Is it to gain new followers? Is it to attract attention? Or do they just sincerely want to contribute? Whatever the reason, here are 7 ways to tweet (or spam?) Twitter trends. 

Let's take this morning's list as an example:
 
















1.) Ask why the trend is trending.
So why is #JustBecause trending?




 2.) Tweet nothing but the hashtag.

#JustBecause#JustBecause#JustBecause#JustBecause#JustBecause
#JustBecause#JustBecause#JustBecause#JustBecause#JustBecause



3.) Retweet the top tweet.
 
4.)  Connect the trends (whether it makes sense or not).
 #JustBecause #UnkabogableShowtime ROCK and RAWR Die In Your Arms Philippines



5.)  Tweet the trending list.
 Now trending #JustBecause #UnkabogableShowtime #TheMorningRush Tom & Jerry



6.) Contribute to the trend...

Don't think you know me #JustBecause you follow my tweets




7.) Or not.
Nakikitrend lang pouhz peace jejejeje #JustBecause


So which one are you guilty of? Know more ways to join the trend?
