Until very recently it didn’t raise a lot of people’s ire, and served as quite a useful way of not only picking up on global events (Michael Jackson’s death was probably revealed to a lot of people via the trends, for instance) but also a great way for some of the comedy elements of Twitter to spread and grow.
