Twitter Trending Topics Takedown Leaves Justin Bieber Out In The Cold

For the first time in recent memory, Justin Bieber is no longer a Trending Topic on Twitter.

Justin-related topics have trended nearly every day for weeks thanks to the teen star’s legion of devoted fans — but that could be about to change thanks to a new programming update that will revolutionize the way the site determine’s the day’s hottest topics. The site has changed the algorithm that determines the Trending Topics — often indicated by a special hashtagged word or phrase – being talked about across Twitter.

“We have tweaked our worldwide trending topic algorithm to better capture the most emergent trends being talked about on Twitter right now,” site managers say of the change. But pop’s own banged sensation is calling the popular microblogging networking site out over the update, which he believes was implemented to silence the shouts of his fans.

“I heard you changed your system to stop my fans from making trending topics?? Really?? Where is the love??” Justin Tweeted to @Twitter on Saturday.

For its part, Twitter says the change is just business.

“@justinbieber the TT tweak is nothing personal. It was long planned & better shows what is emerging right now,” @ Twitter wrote in response to Bieber’s remarks.

Twitter chiefs then directed the “Baby” crooner to this page explaining the Trending Topics takedown.
