Twoppics, the stories behind the hottest topics on twitter.
Your hot twoppioc of the moment? Two of America's greatest have died. Historian and activist Howard Zinn died Wednesday of a heart attack at the age of 87. His 1980 book "A People's History of the United States," chronicled the nation's development through voices of women, minorities and the working class. And "Catcher in the Rye" author J.D. Salinger has died at age 91. He had lived for decades in self-imposed isolation in New Hampshire.
The hot twoppic of the day and week is the State of the Union (SOTU) address. President Obama spoke to the nation Wednesday night and outlined plans to boost the economy with tax cuts, and job creation. He also addressed the bank bailout, and policies to recoup the taxpayer money that was given to bailout financial institutions. The President also took the opportunity to address Congressional Republicans for practicing obstructionist politics and challenged them to actually get something done. The President criticized the judicial branch of government, slamming the recent decision by the Supreme Court that said corporations and unions could spend freely from their treasuries to run political ads for or against specific candidates. @hiddenrogue tweets Ok, upon re-reading Obama's SOTU speech from last night, I'm quite happy I voted for him. He's getting the job done. Well, he's trying.
