Twoppics, the stories behind the hottest topics on Twitter.

Hot twoppic of the moment is the death of Slipknot bassist Paul Gray.  The 38-year old was found in an Iowa hotel room on Monday, the cause of death is pending an autopsy, but police found no evidence of foul play. He left behind him a wife who is expecting the couple's first child.

Hot twoppic of the day is Geek PrideDay and Towel Day. Towel Day was instituted in 2001, two weeks after the death of author Douglas Adams, whop wrote "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy." He wrote that the key ingredient to successful hitchhiking is the everyday towel. So on May 25th, his fans  celebrate by carrying a towel wherever they go in Adaams' honor. But the Towel carriers will have to make room for the Geeks -- It is also Geek Pride Day -- an initiative that has been celebrated on May 25 since 2006.  So whether you are a "Star Wars" fiend or your friends nickname for you is Liz Lemon, the day encourages everyone to embrace their inner Geek.

Hot twoppic of the week is Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick who was in court for sentencing after violating his probation.  Kilpatrick has already served 99 days in prison for obstruction of justice when he lied under oath about sending racy text messages to a member of his staff.  Tuesday, a judge told Kilpatrick... The disgraced mayor  still owes the city $1 million and got the book thrown at him for lying about his finances.
