Four hours ago, MySpace queen Tila Tequila encouraged her Twitter followers to make the hashtag #FARTS a trending topic. They succeeded, putting #FARTS just below Michael Jackson in the number three spot.
Apparently, Twitter doesn’t like that sort of thing. They just pulled #FARTS from the trending topics. Twitter normally pulls trending topics they suspect to be spam — but does an honest show of fandom, however quirky, count as spamming? More to the point, how could they possibly brand Tila, a Verified Account holder, as a spammer?
