Twoppics, the stories behind the hottest topics on Twitter.
Your twoppic of the moment is the release of U.S. Census data... The population of the U.S. now sits at over 308 million, but the growth rate is at its slowest since the Great Depression. The Twitter-verse is still trying to digest all the data...@kill_the_wabbit tweets...
I feel like doing the #census math to figure out if a state could have kept a seat if SD, ND and WY were combined into one.

Your twoppic of the day is the passage of Net Neutrality rules... Reaction on Twitter is mixed, with many thinking the new rules are good, but short-sighted...@Zero tweets...
I'm really torn on the new Net Neutrality rules. Since most Net is going mobile, we'll be in the same place in 3 years.

Your top twoppic is Haley Barbour. The Mississippi Governor is stealing headlines with comments he made during an interview, saying that he didn't recall the Civil Rights era as being quote - "that bad." Barbour also discussed the White Citizens' Councils, which opposed racial integration, saying the Councils were a positive force that didn't tolerate racist attitudes. Tweeters seem to be struggling to find the positive in it all...@willmckinley tweets...
A moment of silence, please, for Haley Barbour's political career.
