Twitter Chart ImageKorean boy band Super Junior takes the top spot on this week’s list, demonstrating once again that Twitter is truly an international affair.

And in classic Twitter form, international diplomatic crises rank right up there with pro sports upsets as the most talked about topics on the network. And if you’re concerned about Justin Bieber (as we all certainly are), rest assured, he jumps back into the trend party at number seven.

As always, our pals at What The Trend have provided the insightful list below. Because this is a topical list, hashtag memes and games have been omitted from the chart.
