Twoppics, the stories behind the hottest topics on Twitter.
Your twoppic of the moment is Charlie Rangel. The embattled New York Democratic Congressman split with his council last month, and requested a delay in his ethics trial Monday. When he didn't get it, he walked out of the proceedings. The charges stem from various fundraising and tax allegations.
Your twoppic of the day is America Recycles Day. November 15th is the only nationally recognized day dedicated to the promotion of recycling systems in the U.S. Keep America Beautiful took over organziation of the event in 2009, 12 years after its debut. The movement now boasts sponsors such as PepsiCo, Anheuser-Busch and Waste Management. @jakequake81 tweets "Today is America Recycles Day... So get out there and help the environment by recycling!"
Your top twoppic is #holdmyhand... No, not the Hootie & the Blowfish song... Not the Beatles either... "Hold My Hand" is the first single from Michael - an album of Michael Jackon material set to be released next month. The song features a duet with Akon, who originally recorded with the late King of Pop in 2007. The track is reportedly Jackson's own pick as the first single---in a release, his estate says Jackson expressed his desire to have the song released first in a personally-handwritten note before his death. @michelle_rose1 tweets "I love the song! Truly amazing!"
