1.#horsesandbayonets

After a statement from Governor Romney regarding the reduction of ships in our navy, President Obama replied with a clever zinger saying “we also don’t have as many horses and bayonets as we once did.” Twitter went crazy over it.

2.#thingstodothissembreak

I think it’s safe to say that college students all over are ready for their semester break. Break isn’t too far away but we still have Halloween, Thanksgiving and finals week before we get to relax and take a break from all the homework and tests.

3. #Mistakesmadebyboys

Ladies tweeted tons of so-called mistakes ex-boyfriends and current boyfriends have made. Hopefully guys will see this and decide to start #mistakesmadebygirls. I’m sure us men can come up with just as many, if not more.

4. #IronMan3

On Monday night, Marvel Studios released the trailer for the highly anticipated “Iron Man 3.” Seeing as its only October and the movie is several months away from being released, I’m sure that we’ll see a lot more trailers and millions of tweets.

5. #LanceArmstrong

#LanceArmstrong has been a trending topic for quite some time now because of allegations about him taking performance enhancing drugs. But just recently he has made news again when he resigned from the LiveStrong campaign, which had Nike drop it as one of its endorsers.
