#Twoppics – Roger Ebert, #firstdayofsummer, Wimbledon

Twoppics, the stories behind the hottest topics on Twitter...

Audio clip:

Your twoppic of the moment is Roger Ebert.  The famed movie critic created a social media firestorm with a controversial tweet in the hours after the violent car crash that killed Jackass star Ryan Dunn...

That led Jackass co-star Bam Margera to launch a web-based war with Ebert, resulting in Ebert's Facebook page being shut down...

The derogatory comments haven't spread to Twitter, though, where Ebert, who has since apologized, is enjoying lots of support, including @disastrous007...

and @EloyGarcia84...

Your twoppic of the day is that moment when the Earth's axial tilt is most aligned with the Sun...or the #firstdayofsummer.  Yup, for Tweeps in the Northern Hemisphere, it's the longest day of the year, which is great if it's sunny.  It's the start of months of hazy, hot, humid weather, beaches and vacations, and school-free days for the kiddies.  And from ordinary people, like @logandoesntweet...

and @GoCheeksGo...

to celebrities like actress Michelle Trachtenberg...

...it's a day to celebrate.

Your top twoppic is Wimbledon.  It's Day 2 of the oldest and one of the most prestigious tennis tournaments in the world.  Leading women like defending champ Serena Williams, top-seed Caroline Wozniacki and fan favorite Maria Sharapova all won their 1st-round matches, as did top men like '09 champ Roger Federer, 2nd-seed Novak Djokovic and American Andy Roddick.  But the top pairing of the day at the All-England Club, for Twitter at least, was the rematch of last year's record-setting match between John Isner and Nicolas Mahut.  In last year's first round, the two played the longest tennis match in history, 183 total games in more than 11 hours spread over 3 days.  This time around, Isner made quick work of Mahut, winning in straight sets and just 2 hours, 3 minutes.  Even the official Wimbeldon twitter followed the match...
