To paraphrase Lucas from Empire Records, “Who knows where Twitter hashtags come from? They just appear.” Sometimes the day’s most popular trends come from an obvious source: a celebrity news item, say, or outrage over a new edition of Huckleberry Finn. Sometimes however, topics just appear on Twitter for no discernible reason, and make their way ’round the social network stratosphere. And they are glorious.
Take today’s example: What does a #realman look like? Well, they have lots of thoughts on ice-cream, 6-packs, and Justin Bieber, so real men look a lot like 12-year-old girls.
