Twitter index: Justin Bieber, Cowboys and Redskins

On December 31, as 2012 comes to a close, Twitter users are getting excited about messages from Bieber, passing on their season's greetings and talking about the latest NFL game. 

Pop star Justin Bieber, one of 2012's undisputed Twitter heavyweights, is once again a hot topic on the microblogging site as the year winds down.

The reason for Justin Bieber's Twitter popularity today is due to a tweet that reads "back to the vacay. u good?" Bieber's simple message has now been retweeted a whopping 26,374 times and sent his fans into overdrive as they take to the microblogging site to declare their feelings of admiration towards the teenage heartthrob.

Teen pop music also accounts for today's third-placed trending topic "Larry," which refers to the mash up of the first names of One Direction members Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles, who are thought to be very close friends. The boyband members today took to Twitter to post various pictures of the two of them together, causing other Twitter users to do the same.

Elsewhere on Twitter the American football game that took place on Sunday night between the Redskins and the Cowboys is a hot topic of conversation. The game, which accounts for four current trending topics -- seventh-placed "Dez Bryant," eighth-placed "Redskins," ninth-placed "#cowboys" and tenth-placed "Tony Romo," for the Cowboys quarterback -- saw the Redskins beat the Cowboys 28-18 and claim the NFC East title. Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Desmond "Dez" Byrant was named one of the top performers of the game.

As 2012 comes to a close Twitter users are also taking the opportunity to wish one and other a "Happy New Year," making the phrase the top trending topic.
