Social media startup HootSuite recently revealed Canada’s top twitter trends of 2011. At the top was the Grey Cup, the November football tradition which saw the BC Lions take a bite out of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in Vancouver.

Using an algorithm balancing the cumulative duration of a trending topic of Twitter’s top 10 and its actual rank throughout that duration, HootSuite determined the top 50 trends. Grey Cup trended for over 4 days, while Good Night Twitter – number two – spent nearly 7 days trending.

In third place was the infamous Rebecca Black, who was coincidentally followed by #WorstFeeling – probably the trending topic people posted after watching Rebecca’s video. Other celebrity types included GSP, or Georges St-Pierre, and Don Cherry. Other hashtag trends included #RememberWhen and #TigerBlood.
