Twoppics, the stories behind the hottest topics on Twitter.
Your twoppic of the moment... Now former New York Knicks analyst Gus Johnson. Broadcast network MSG announcing that Johnson will not be rejoining the team for the coming season. Various reports attribute the decision to Johnson's busy schedule outside of the team, which includes calling March Madness for CBS. The twitter-verse didn't see it coming - @G_OLDY tweets "quite the shocker. Walt Frazier is going to "perkulate" in the paint by himself now." @ScottyKitz has a job offer: "Wonder how much it would cost to have him follow me and do play-by-play of my day."
Your hot twoppic of the day is Dizzy Gillespie. Thursday would have been the jazz great's 93rd birthday. Google is saluting the puffy-cheeked trumpeter---who was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Grammy in 1990---with a mosaic Doodle tribute on their homepage. @Anna_MollyD tweets "Gillespie was an idol when I played jazz growing up." Gillespie died in 1993 after a battle with pancreatic cancer.
Your top twoppic...the Great California Shakeout, a state-wide earthquake drill in the Golden State. @ladyrazorsharp tweets "I remember the 1994 Northridge and 1989 Loma Prieta quakes. Be prepared!"
