At one point during the event, Pinoys grabbed 6 spots of the top 10 trending topics and I would like to think that my humble contribution helped in making that happen.
Tweets raging from the second by second recount of the 3.5-hour long event to the bloopers, predictions and team chants flooded the web.
Top tweets were:

@philippineblogs Twitter rejects Ateneo apology. ADMU gets disqualified in the UAAP Cheerdance Competition for unauthorized use of the Twitter bird.
Almost 22 thousand live audiences were at the Araneta Coliseum on a fine Sunday afternoon to witness the win of UP Pep Squad, who finally had it's bragging rights after never winning any of the 14 UAAP basketball games that Pinoys also watch avidly (UP ended at 0-14 for UAAP Season 73)
The last time that I watched UAAP's Cheerdance Competition was last 2008 when UP emerged as the champion. UP was then celebrating their 100th Founding Anniversary.
The year 2009 championship went to FEU and in both years, UST was not far behind, ending in the top 3.
This year, 2010, all three above-mentioned schools once again dominated the top 3 spots with FEU getting the #2 and UST the #3 places.
