Which entertainment properties led Twitter in 2010?

As the end of the year draws close, the inevitable year in review pieces are starting to roll out. The first, from Twitter, however, shows what the hot shows, music, movies and actors were with the Twitterati – and it holds some pretty big surprises. Twitter

While it’s not exactly shocking that Charlie Sheen led the actor category, Elizabeth Taylor was the most talked about actress (and Raven Symone topped both Natalie Portman and Jennifer Lopez). And of all the shows on TV, ABC Family’s “Pretty Little Liars” was the hottest topic.

YouTube sensation Rebecca Black was the year’s hottest subject in music, while “Thor” was the most talked about movie. It’s worth noting that the year’s top four grossing pictures (year to date) – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2,” “Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” and “Kung Fu Panda 2” – were all absent from the list.
