The Gulf oil leak was the largely tweeted subject on Twitter in 2010, the public news website declared on Monday.

The website, which keeps a tight rein on posting to 140 fonts, revealed it set out its Top 10 trends of 2010 by examining over 25-billion tweets sent by the website's 175-million followers.

The Fifa World Cup got the second place, and may well also lay assertion to two other places in the Top 10 position because of a reference at No. 5 for the infamous vuvuzelas and 10th place for the game-guessing octopus Paul.

The film Inception captured the third rank, went after the Haiti underground eruption. Apple's iPad got sixth number, after Google Android, Justin Bieber as well as Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows.

“The list of 2010 Twitter Trends reflects what's happening in our world, demonstrates the power of turning any event or story into a shared experience, and underscores Twitter's value as a real-time information network,” the website stated in revealing the ranking.
