Looking back in 2009. Twitter has given so many people a new voice in the last year, that to ignore what it has to say would be amiss. WhatTheTrend has compiled a list of the very top Twitter trends of the year, telling us what we all talked about the most. A few people have tried to do similar things, but no other list is as complete and detailed as this one.

Google Wave of course quite popular new internet service from Google, allowing real time collaboration and communication. When the first 100,000 invites were released, people clamored to be let in. All the first people into the beta were given a handful of invites to share. Still, I would guesstimate that half the tweets on Google Wave were broken in two between people trying to get in by begging, and people lost as hell once they got there.

Michael Jackson also kept trending. When MJ bought the farm, or perhaps sold the ranch, the whole world melted down instantly. People from around the nation, and the world all felt the loss sharply. Tweets surrounding his death, the rumors of the causes behind it, his hidden drug addiction, his funeral, and the movie following his death swirled around the internet for weeks. Want to know how big a star Michael was? He was the third most popular topic on Twitter, all year.

#musicmonday. Given that Twitter is all about sharing, it is hardly surprising that one of the top discussions was around sharing what we are listening to. Twitter has grown up from a lifestreaming service, to a wonderful mix of news, opinion, and discussion. But still, we love to share what we are doing. #musicmonday is not going anywhere.

Number one trend of the year: #iranelection. The unrest in Iran following the stolen election made Twitter buckle under the weight of millions of people tweeting about the protests and violence. It spawned a second wave of action, with millions more on Twitter dying the profiles green in a sign of solidarity with the Iranian protesters.
