“I saw Tim Allen was trending and clicked on it to see why- only to discover that the majority of the tweets were asking why Tim Allen is trending. So basically Tim Allen is trending because Tim Allen is trending. And that’s Twitter in a nutshell,”  one fan tweets as a result of the trend.

Another says, “Get on Twitter. See Tim Allen trending. Check tweets. It’s only tweeted asking why Tim Allen is trending. I believe the simulation is broken and Twitter is actually cannibalizing itself as we speak.” Sounds about right.

Allen followed up on his tweet by saying, “Ok, I figured it out. Some nosey neighbor saw what I was having for lunch and ‘figured’ I was going to die.” He included a photo of hotdogs. Leave it to Tim Allen to turn a Twitter trending scare into a comedic moment!
