Oh those crazy kids and the Twitter. After the popular microblogging service made some changes to the process by which trending topics are ranked, Justin Bieber found himself knocked off the list. The changes now reward spikes in traffic over a short period of time rather than overall traffic around existing topics. That means new topics rise to the top faster than incumbent topics, affecting Bieber and others.

His fans responded by simply changing up his name, such as “Twiber” or “Jieber.” New takes on the name equals new spikes in traffic. (Gawker)
