mage-09-afzal-guru-302.jpg www.oneindia.com}NEW DELHI, Feb 9: At noon on Saturday of the ten top trending subjects on Twitter, seven were related to terrorism and Afzal Guru stayed at the top. Others trending were Kasab at number four, J&K at six, Tihar Jail at seventh position, RK Singh (home secretary) at eighth position, Kashmir was nine and Omar Abdullah took tenth spot.
This clearly shows that Indians are worried about terrorism affecting their daily life and the nation's growth. The reactions from the Twitterati should be seen more as a sign of sigh of relief that something decisive is happening and now the political class should get on with the governance issue instead of indulging in cacophony on terror.
The frequency of tweets was over 20 messages every second. Here are few of them.
