Twoppics, the stories behind the hottest topics on Twitter.
The Redskins are Rex's... Your twoppic of the moment is Rex Grossman. Washington coach Mike Shanahan announcing Friday that he's benching veteran QB Donovan McNabb in favor of the former Florida Gator. Grossman has only attempted 7 passes this season, completing 4 of them for 44 yards and a lost fumble, all late in a Week 8 loss to Detroit. 'Skins fans...well, they're not taking it well. @briankspears tweets...
@owillis If Shanahan thinks Rex Grossman is the answer, he's asking a really dumb question

Rex Grossman will reportedly start over McNabb. Shanahan now has more expensive things on shelf than the Smithsonian.

Your twoppic of the day is World Lens. The new smartphone app allows you to take a picture of a sign in a foreign language and translate it. Right now it only recognizes English and Spanish, but developers are working to expand the technology, allowing you to have a virtual translation dictionary in your pocket. The Twitter-verse is intrigued...@nealhendrix tweets...
Has anyone used the word lens Iphone app yet? It looks like the best thing ever invented, wondering if it really works

Word Lens is one of those concepts that I would have scoffed at if I read it in sci-fi a few years ago. Now it's real. http://t.co/CbOfbgk

Your top twoppic is Winter Break. Tweeters of the pupil persausion are celebrating the end of semesters, sleeping in, the lack of homework and the upcoming days of school-free living. For tweeps who will still be toiling away at work on Monday...at least *today's* Friday, right?
