One Direction and Kids Choice Awards Are #1 Twitter Trends for 2015

Twitter has revealed its #1 trending topics for 2015, and One Direction and the Kids Choice Awards are topping the list in their respective categories.

One Direction was the #1 trend for Music, as the group’s new album, combined with the announcement of both Zayn Malik’s departure from the boy band and news of the group’s hiatus, made this a no-brainer. But they weren’t alone among major pop groups on the list, as Fifth Harmony had their biggest year yet thanks to singles such as “Worth It” and Camila Cabello’s hit duet with Shawn Mendes, “I Know What You Did Last Summer”, among other major media appearances this year. In other categories, iPad was the #1 Tech trend, while Ariana Grande was the big winner in the Stars category. Interestingly, reality TV ultimately failed to make much of a dent this year on the television side of things, with the TV category splitting between scripted dramas such as Empire, Pretty Little Liars and The Walking Dead, and awards shows such as the AMAs, the Teen Choice Awards, and the aforementioned Kids Choice Awards.

In a funny twist, Twitter itself just barely made the Tech list, coming in at #10. Okay, it’s not that funny, but it felt like something worth pointing out. Check out some of the lists of Top Trends for 2015 below:
