Jews Top Twitter’s “Hot Topics” for 2011
Year’s end will soon be upon us, and tis’ the season for a plethora of obligatory year-end lists. Twitter is no exception – lest we forget, it is the “Twitterverse”. In the aforementioned social network’s top-trending actors and actresses categories, a number are of the Jewish persuasion.

In the actress category, the late, great Elizabeth Taylor was number one, followed by Mila Kunis in the number two spot. Natalie Portman came in fifth, with other notables including Anne Hathaway (number 3), Jennifer Lopez (number 7), and Emma Watson (number 9).

Of the male thespians, Charlie Sheen topped the list, with Jake Gyllenhaal in 7th position, and the ubiquitous James Franco rounding out the list at number 10. Other actors that made the list included Macaulay Culkin in second place, quondam Mr. Demi Moore a.k.a. Ashton Kutcher in 8th position, and Academy Award winner Colin Firth in 9th place.

In addition to Charlie Sheen topping the actor category, his “tigerblood” catch phrase, which he claimed coursed through his veins during the unfortunate non compos mentis phase, was 2nd in the top hashtags, with Egypt in first place.
