Twoppics, the stories behind the hottest topics on twitter.

After serving nearly nine years of incarceration, Bad Boy recording artist Shyne is being released, making him the hot twoppic of the moment. He was serving a sentence for his role in the shootout at Manhattan's Club New York in 1999 where Shyne, Bad Boy mogul P. Diddy and his then-girlfriend Jennifer Lopez were partying.

Tuesday morning, Google and Verizon announced an agreement that will bring Android phones to Verizon. Verizon Wireless is typically known for its great coverage, but not its handheld devices.  Now, the carrier will offer two Android phones by the end of the year, and hopes to provide some steep competition to Apple and the reigning iPhone. Verizon's smooth move makes the company the hot twoppic of the day.

New regulations for bloggers. The Federal Trade Commission is the hot twoppic of the week, protecting consumer interests by making it mandatory for bloggers who offer endorsements to make public any payments they have received from the subjects of their reviews. Any who do not comply face penalties of up to $11,000.

Time for a little Twitter 101: In the spirit of Music Monday and Follow Friday comes #charitytuesday, and what it lacks in alliteration, it makes up for with its noble purpose. Tweeps are tweeting links to charities they support, and links to donation pages to try to get immediate online donations. Even some companies are getting into the spirit of doing good. @pizzahut tweeted a link to the World Hunger Relief donation page along with the message: We will donate 4 meals 2 World Hunger Relief 4 each person who RTs this: http://ow.ly/qWn8 #pizzahut#charitytuesday

Those are your twoppics on FOX News Radio.
