Twoppics, the stories behind the hottest topics on Twitter.
The "Money Train" ends here...Your twoppic of the moment is Wesley Snipes. The U.S. Marshal's Office is ordering Snipes to voluntarily surrender to a federal prison in Pennsylvania next week to start his 3-year sentence for failing to pay taxes. The actor was convicted in 2008 for willful failure to file income tax returns, but has been free as he appeals the case. @Confederateyank tweets "Guess he's going from 'Blade' to 'Shawshanked.'"
Your twoppic of the day is World AIDS Day...FOX News Radio's @jeffmonosso reports on the occasion. Around the globe, landmarks are turning red in support of the event. From the Sydney Opera House to Paris' Town Hall and Fountains, from the London Eye to Cape Town's Table Mountain, and from Niagara Falls and the Empire State Building to Seattle's Space Needle, global awareness is the goal. Certain celebrity twitters have gone silent is support, as well... Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga and Kim Kardashian are just a few of the tweeters who have "turned red." @EllADORE1 tweets "today is World Aids day... to be aware of your standing go get tested!"
Your top twoppic... Tonight begins Hanukkah, the Jewish Festival of Lights... The 8-day holiday commemorates the rededication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem in the 2nd century B.C. and the miracle of the menorah that stayed lit for 8 nights, even though there was only enough oil for 1. The Twitter-verse is alive with Tweeps wishing each other a Happy Hanukkah.
