For those of you still playing Farmville on Facebook and remaining blissfully unaware of the meaning of #youlookedgooduntil, the folks at Twitter have deemed Nashville enough of a world-class city that its hot topics are now tracked minute-by-minute.
This all happened relatively quietly, and there's still some kinks to be worked out. For example, while "Opry Mills" was one of the most talked-about subjects worldwide Tuesday, Twitter said that Nashville was talking about "Tornado Watches," which occurred the night before.
In any case, Nashville's Twitter cred has been popping this week: Not only did Opry Mills trend globally Tuesday, but both Shea Weber and Mike Fisher made the international list during last night's 4-1 shellacking of the Ducks.
Maybe this is the next step to the big time — making Nashville an AP byline city. (As Steven Hale pointed out in a print-only City Paper feature this week (PDF after the jump) we aren't yet, but maybe should be.)
As Shane O'Brien would say: Scoreboard.
