Twitter index: Sarah Geronimo Day, 'Happy Birthday Kurt Cobain'

Filipino microbloggers have declared that February 19 and 20 should be Sarah G. Day in honor of Filipino singer Sarah Geronimo.

Tweeps are excitedly tweeting about the twenty-three-year-old singer and her on-stage performances. They say, “to enlighten foreigners around the world: Sarah G. Day refers to one of the Most Talented Singers here in Philippines, Sarah Geronimo.”

Twitterers are posting uplifting messages with the phrase “Life's Too Short.”

They say life is too short: “to hate, stress, or hurt anyone. Enjoy the short life you are given and make the best moments in life last forever,” “to worry about what other people think of you” and “to spend your time making other people miserable, spend your time being happy & making others happy too!”

Tweeps are wishing Nirvana lead man Kurt Cobain a happy birthday on what would have been his 45th birthday and trending “R.I.P Bernie Mac” despite the fact the American actor died in August 2008.

Today’s top trending hastags include “#NotGettingAFollowBackIf,” “#IfIHadItMyWay” and “#ThrowBackSongs.”

The movies “The Proud Family Movie” and “The Pursuit of Happyness” are in third and tenth places on the chart and the Portuguese word for “hummingbird” (“Beija-Flor”) is in eighth place.
