10. Can somebody explain how you can even do that?

I use Twitter for this and that -- like to keep up with what my kids are doing, or what sort of merry mayhem Anonymous is up to. But I've never paid any attention to this "trending" thing. I mean, why would it matter to me to know that some actress is pregnant? Or why would I need Twitter to tell me that a lot of people are concerned about New Orleans?

So I have no clue how you can "buy" a trending topic. Does it mean that your name suddenly shows up on the "what's trending" lists with an asterisk explaining that it isn't really trending but that this is a sponsored ad? And even if it does, if you're not pregnant or being hit by a hurricane, why would anybody bother clicking on it?

Or am I totally misunderstanding how this thing works?
