Haiti Continues To Be A Popular Topic Online

This is the last day of this week and the last day of this month and I thought I would sum up which topics have been generating the most tweets this past week.

If you want to find out what is hot on the web at the moment, Twitter is the perfect tool. With millions of tweets crossing its servers and constantly updated trending topics, it’s easy to find out what’s happening right now.

A new series by Mashable recap the week’s Top Twitter Topics. Here are the top three topics.

#1: Haiti
Even though it has been several weeks since Haiti experienced an earthquake measured at 7.0 which devastated the country’s capital, it is still an important and relevant topic and that shows on the web. Haiti is this week most discussed and mentioned topic on the web. The top topics of the discussions are Haiti, relief efforts, and raising money to help.

#2: iPad
With the launch of Apples iPad, I personally I thought this was going to be the most discussed topic this week and I guess I’m glad that I was wrong. Think it’s a good thing that people are talking more about helping those who need it instead of talking of the most hyped gadget. But not surprisingly, the launch of the iPad is the second most discussed topic this week.

#3: Obama
Steve Jobs beat Obama in online buzz and Obama’s first “State of the Union” is this week’s third most discussed topic.
