Twitter may have you seeing red today. December 1st is World AIDS Day, and Twitter is amongst a handful of companies raising awareness about AIDS in Africa. The Twitter homepage has turned red--and you can turn your tweets red by adding #red to the end of a tweet or #laceupsavelives which promotes Nike's red shoe lace campaign - 100% of the proceeds go to the cause.  Facebook and google are also partaking in the red theme, the idea being that One Color Unites Us, making World AIDS Day your hot twoppic of the moment and day.@joinred is at the helm of this movement. They are tweeting facts like 10% of the world's pop is in Africa yet she's home to 67% of all HIV cases. Fight AIDS in Africa. Turn Twitter (RED) #red#laceupsavelives

Celebrities are trying to raise awareness to their many followers: Actress @emmyrossum tweets Dec 1 is an important day.Wear a red ribbon today & remind your friends, family & coworkers to help the fight. Today is World AIDS Day. #red While reality show star @KhloeKardashian tweets I'm going to Project Angel Food in Los Angeles volunteering with a bunch of MAC makeup artists on World AIDS Day to show my support

Hot twoppic of the week is Afghanistan. Tonight President Obama will address the nation from West Point in a speech outlining his new plan for the war in Afghanistan. The president is expected to send 30,000 more U.S. troops to Afghanistan over the next six months,  with an aim to end the war in three years.
