Sports & Bieber. Not only is the title of my memory to come, but summarizes some of the key trends in Twitter on the table this week.

International football, a trend that has been around number three or four on our chart for weeks, has finally broken through in the first place, thanks to big games, and discussion of the politics of FIFA.

In the U.S., the NBA Finals began the Miami Heat and Dallas Mavericks. Tweets in the tournament has propelled the issue number two points - a rare feat for American sports on Twitter.

And like a warm blanket, a calming presence for the return of Justin Bieber this week, Top 10, thanks in part around fervently Beliebers in Latin America. Biebsi rings in at number three.

To see the complete list, see the table below. As this is an updated list hashtag memes and games have omitted from the list. The total is based on the algorithm of Twitter own trends, and do not necessarily reflect the volume first tweet.
