Did I just make a mistake? Is this about Twitter, or Justin Bieber? Yes, you’re reading that right.
The social media and Justin Bieber have been one and the same for a long time, after Biebermania took over the Web and fans tweeted left and right about everything the young star with hair that is always perfectly pointed forward was doing. But this weekend Twitter announced the love affair was about to be over – they were changing the way they calculated Twitter Trends with a new algorithm, and that would have meant the fall of the trending champ.
But we, Bieber fans wouldn’t have it. After JB himself tweeted wondering about the change, beliebers figured out they could outsmart the social media algorithm by making their own Twieber social media network and talking about Bieber as Twieber – or even Jieber. “Twitter, your move next,” the Bieber fans collectively texted. Well played, teens. We’ll score this: Beliebers 1, Twitter 1.
So Fans, Next time you tweet, please use the word “Jieber” and/or “Twieber”, you can say “Where is Jieber?” or “I Love Jieber”
Anything with Jieber / Twieber in it.
