#Twoppics – NewsCorp/Myspace, #transformers3, @JFKTurtles
Twoppics, the stories behind the hottest topics on Twitter…
Your twoppic of the moment is News Corp, which has sold Myspace… FOX News Radio’s Lisa Brady reporting. News of the sale is making the rounds on Twitter thanks to tweeps like @littleylittley…
#MySpace was bought by News Corp. 6 yrs ago for $580 million & sold today to Specific Media for roughly $35 million.

News Corp is the parent company of FOX News Radio.
Your twoppic of the day is #transformers3 Dark of the Moon… The latest in the comic-turned-movie franchise hit theaters Wednesday. And if the Twittersphere is any indication, it’s doing pretty well at the box office. From those excited to see it, like @Yoshi831…

You could pay to see #Transformers3, or you could put some pennies in a blender, and stare at a strobe light.

…the movie is lighting up the Twitterverse.
Trending in New York, but having ripple effects nationwide, your top twoppic is JFK as in the airport… Yes, they answered the age-old question: Why’d the turtle cross the runway? To go lay some eggs. The only problem, there were some fully-loaded jumbojets waiting to take off. Good news though, they removed them all safely… Air traffic controllers got a kick out of it. As did some travelers who got their Twitter Travel Alert from JetBlue…
JFK is experiencing delays as the airport clears turtles off the runway. #cantmakethisup (Check flight status at jetblue.com.)

After their slow-and-steady trek, the turtles did the best thing to take advantage of their fame…they opened their own Twitter…
