Twoppics, the stories behind the hottest topics on Twitter.

Last Friday Twitter updated the trending topics algorithm to identify topics that are immediately popular, rather than topics that have been popular for a while or on a daily basis. The goal is to trend the most breaking  news stories around the world.  But the change  bumped Justin Bieber off the trending topic list - but his fans found a way around it - they created a twitter spin-off site called  Twieber. They confess their love for the shaggy haired singer minute by minute, making Tweiber your hot twoppic of the moment.

Hot twoppic of the day - heavy metal rocker Ronnie James Dio died Monday morning, losing his battle with stomach cancer. Dio was known for his performances with bands like Black Sabbath - he was 67 years old.

As the oil spill hearings on Capitol Hill continue,  the disaster remains the hot twoppic of the week. Now, President Obama is getting to the bottom of the cause of the spill. FOX's Major Garrett has more.
