It’s time for “Year End List” and Twitter has jumped on their list-making early and compiled a Top 10 list.  In 2010, there were over 25 billion Tweets!  That’s a lot of Tweets, so I’m glad they were able to put together some sort of list.

They anaylzed the Tweets to come up with leading trends for the year in 8 catagories:  News Events, People, Movies, Television, Technology, World Cup, Sports and Hashtags.

Jodi Olson from Twitter says, “Each Trend in the Top 10 list includes multiple related terms, to give the most accurate view of the topics that people cared about most in 2010″.

Top 10 Twitter Trends of 2010

1. Gulf Oil Spill

2. FIFA World Cup

3. Inception

4. Haiti Earthquake

5. Vuvuzela

6. Apple iPad

7. Google Android

8. Justin Bieber

9. Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows

10. Pulpo Paul

“These Trends indicate the things that are most meaningful in our lives. Each day on Twitter, people tweet about news, sports, entertainment and cool new technology–and everything else in between”, says Olsen.

It’s nice to know that social media does seem to have a social conscience.

What do you think, do you agree with these this top ten list?

Even though this list does not relate to business coaching, I thought it was a fun list.  You can make your own “Top Ten List of 2010″ for your small business or company.  If you sell products, put together a list of your top sellers.  This would be a great time to promote the list too!  If you offer a service, what are your top services?  The lists could also be used as gauges to see if you met company goals.

If you set goals for 2010, which I highly recommend to do as as executive coach, compare it to your lists and see if they match up.  This can help you create a plan for 2011!
