No points for guessing the top trend for 11/11/12- Happy Dhanteras folks!
It is, perhaps, the only festival with the sole aim of spending a lot of money. Check out how Twitter remained abuzz:

Bollywood Director, Kunal Kohli“The greatest gift you can give someone is not to share your riches but to reveal to him his own. Happy dhanteras.”

@Ohfakenews– “Men all over india were seen buying packs of GOLDFLAKE outside Gold shops. Happy Dhanteras.”

@doctoratlarge– “Happy Dhanteras to 20% Indians – for the rest it will be Dhan-taras as usual”

Surprise! Surprise!! Celebrity couple Selena Gomez and Justin Beiber broke up. Now, this one was sure to raise eyebrows:

Actor Zack Braff-“If Selena and Justin can’t make it, no one can. Guess I’ll be weeping in the fetal position all day.”

@MixedGirlBarbie“Selena and Justin broke up? I don’t know how I can possibly continue with life as I know it. #sarcasm”

With the festive season’s onset Bollywood seems to be set in a race to get most viewers. Taking in the sensitivity of this time, trailer of Salman Khan starrer Dabangg 2 were released today. Here are a few reactions:

@priyal– “Dabangg 2 trailer should win the best worst trailer award in Bollywood”

@Twincognito-“Dabangg 2 releases on 21st December. Just in case you were wondering how exactly was the Earth gonna end”

November 13 2012 doesn’t just mark Diwali, it also is the release date for Yash Chopra’s big release ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’. The lead actor Shah Rukh Khan remained a top Twitter trend:

@shadymumbai-“There should be a limit to the number of times Shah rukh Khan is allowed to do interviews in One Year …#seriously”

Shah Rukh Khan: “Very touching how all of u r buying tickets for jthj and excited about it. It makes me feel very wanted & positively proud. Thanx all.”

A few days after the Guatemala earthquake, Myanmar was hit by seismic activity measuring 6.6 on Richter scale. Tweeples sent their best:

@P snide: “Update on this morning’s Myanmar quake. Revised up to 6.8. 267km due east of Samthang, Mizoram. Tremors felt as far away as in Imphal.”

@ArifCRafiq-“Barack Obama’s going to Myanmar. Will he say something publicly or privately about the persecution of the Rohingyas?”

Stay safe Myanmar!
