Harry Potter:) Sooooooo much better than JB!Avatar ImageLeper says: I lose faith in the world when I see that people speak more about Justin Bieber than Harry Potter. I just need to calm down and remember that he will be forgotten by 2012 and Harry Potter will live forever.Avatar ImageSohumdore says: If Justin Beiber can beat Harry Potter, I think this world has gone to the dogs. But it says for Overall Trends, so its not like Justin is better than HPAvatar Imagejillians642 says: Oh, I love that Joannie Rochette made the "People" list. I thought she might have only been big in Canada. And of course, I'm thrilled about Harry Potter's place. I still don't know why people think Inception is all that. Didn't I see that basic movie at least twice already? Meh, oh well!Avatar Imagegreenfinch says: harry potter fans will take over the internet.Avatar ImageSindi says: Yay Harry Potter!!!!!!!!!!!!

Eternally better than Bieber. :)Avatar ImageFresca says: I think that more tweens like Bieber, and swarmed the voting!!:) I still prefer Harry Potter in books and films too.Avatar ImageBless_the_children says: Who is Justin Bieber, anyway? HP forever :)Avatar Imageda_member0808 says: *headdesk* Justin Beiber is higher on the list than Harry Potter??? Seriously? Seriously. Ah well, Harry Potter is made of win :DAvatar Imagebellatrix15101 says: Seriously? Bieber beat Harry? Nuh uh. I think Fresca ROAR is right, and that tweens swarmed the voting...... silly tweens. (No offense meant to any tweens here! just meaning the silly Bieber fangirl tweens ;) )Avatar Imagerettophantom says: Okay what does this even mean? Sorry but Twitter really has nothing to do with anything. Seriously thanks for sharing Leaky, because that's your job and you do it fantastically, but everyone chill. It's just twitter, it doesn't actually mean anything. I doubt that most twitter users have even read a book.Avatar ImageXhago says: Justin Who? HP all day.Avatar Imageazaadpotter says: Good to hear that Harry Potter is a trend. Justin Beiber is more talked about than HP? Honestly, The world has gone to the dogs. Avatar Imagechanngalambeatrice says: HP rules. I HATE JUSTIN BIEBER!Avatar ImageMistic Willow says: WOW !!! There is NO DOUBT IN MY MIND THAT HARRY POTTER SHOULD BE FIRST!!!! and DEFINATELY MORE OF A TREND WORLD WIDE THAN Justin Bieber!! I don't like Twitter nor am I connected with it in any way!!!!Avatar ImageHarrypotterultrafan says: only the other week umbridge was trending and i retweeted it:) it said: "i love how some illiterate people are wondering, what the hell is an umbridge" :P Go Potterheads :):) (i notice twilight didnt make it :P)Avatar ImageCDR says: Cool!!!Avatar Imagekiwimci says: So your all shocked that Bieber was a trend, yet in 80% of the comments here you've mentioned him?! That's how Twitter works. You're all talking about him. He's on the list because kids love him and everyone else hates him. Hence they feel the need to comment. Bieber's popularity is equalled by how he's despised and used as an internet joke. He's usually mentioned on TwitterAvatar Imagebutterbeer bottle says: Go HP! @KiwiMcl, good point. But Justin Bieber still annoys me (and by the looks of it, most people on Leaky) to no end.Avatar ImageCatherine says: thats great! inception was a good movie as well so im glad that those were the top two!Avatar Imagejillians642 says: I think you're probably right KiwiMcl. Particularly when you consider that the average age of Twitter users is 30 years old. Unless this is like the Twilight thing and tonnes of soccer moms have Bieber Fever (double shudder because I knew a bad-weird Bieber when I was in school).Avatar ImageEmmaria says: well guys i love HP and JB so....... :DAvatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: You know it's a bad day when you see that Justin Bieber is higher than Harry Potter on ANYTHING - not just Twitter TrendsAvatar Imagemagichik says: Justin Bieber cannot be higher than HP!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hate Justin Bieber. Seriously. Why is Justin B. better than Harry P.?! I'm sad.....:(Avatar Imagemagichik says: Justin Bieber cannot be higher than HP!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hate Justin Bieber. Seriously. Why is Justin B. better than Harry P.?! I'm sad.....:(
