What the Trend says it is “The front page of the real-time web.”
If you want to discover the current trends on Twitter, and the reason they are trending, What the Trend tells you what and why.
Two types of messages drive What The Trend – short phrases and hashtags.
The site gets its trending information using the twitter API, then What The Trend members pitch in, to say why they think the items are interesting, providing a short description of it. Then, What The Trend staff moderate the descriptions and send them back out in their own feed. That feed runs on many other sites, including Twitter.
Tweeternet will keep an eye on it and it we think it is valuable, we may decide to run it at Tweeternet too.
