Sometimes social networks like Twitter can give you that morning adrenalin boost for free. This morning I looked up trending topics and found out that RIP Jackie Chan is trending, first thought OMG No!!! Why? How? What Happen?
Immediately I opened my Google Reader, Google News, Newszela to see what happened to one of my favorite actors, and my research found 0 results. I went back to that Twitter trending topic “RIP Jackie Chan” and by reading some 10-20 last tweets, lots of people said “it’s a lie” now that was a huge relive.
As it looks like, one of the top twitter accounts like Stewie_Griffin tweeted “Jackie Chan did not die. RIP means: Really Inspiring #Person” and tweets like that lead to lots of retweets, and such words land on top trending topics.
You know, now that I look at tweets regarding Rip Jackie Chan, it’s kind of funny how many people think that he is really dead.
Lesson learned, not everything you see as trending topic is true. Lately most trending topics on Twitter are just garbage and not useful at all, in my opinion. I am glad that nothing happened to Jackie Chan and that he is alive with good health.
