Now Trending on Twitter: #ClassicalBands
Thursday, July 19, 2012 - 04:55 PM
Classical music fans, some with a little too much time on their hands, took to Twitter this week to participate in a challenge known as #classicalbands. The concept involves combining names of classical music performers or composers with bands of other genres. The Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto appears to have started the trend.
At several points on Wednesday afternoon, the #classicalbands puzzle became a trending topic, meaning that the tagged phrase rose above the Twitterverse's usual mix of news, spam, conversation and self-promotion.
