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.
