Todd Barry, the King of Twitter Trending Topics


“Yeah, I do [participate in tending topics on Twitter]. It’s probably annoying. It’s just easy. Some guy said I don’t participate in these trending topics, I ruin them. Which I think he said affectionately because he always retweets me. I sometimes think, ‘Oh, I should back off that because it’s getting tiresome,’ but it’s fun to just make them as stupid as possible.”

- Todd Barry on his mastery of trending topic participation. His example of a good one: in response to “Songs That Cancel Each Other Out,” he did “I Love Chinese Food’ by The Beatles,” and “I Don’t Like Chinese Food’ by The Rolling Stones.”
