#TrendingLiverpool – 3rd June – What’s been talk of the town this week?
#TrendingLiverpool is your new guide to what has been happening on Twitter. Each week I will be selecting my highlights from around Liverpool Twitter. Be it general, news, funny or a trending topic – I will keep an eye out for what is happening and keep you all informed in this weekly feature!
So this week on twitter in Liverpool we have seen the city run a Rock and Roll marathon, a man sit in a pub with a offensive shirt to return home to untold amounts of Lilt, various TV shows, political drama and of course, we have had a little bit of sport and transfers aswell!
What has happened?
Well, people ran the Rock and Roll marathon last weekend, town got shut down because of it and nobody was able to get to work – But people won medals and they were all over Twitter..
Well done to the Pops who took on the Liverpool rock and roll half/full marathon on Sunday pic.twitter.com/tpwnIEsuZ3

After this, the Pier Head started getting geared up for the Mersey River Festival.. I have been gearing up for it for weeks, I’ve had Billy Ocean on repeat since I found out he was coming to the Pier Head to be honest..

The demise of Paul Grange
So many of us know that scousers on twitter have had a tendency to be brutal when it comes to defending themselves.. Well, its hard to mention what has happened this week without mentioning a man who had the ridiculous idea to get a shirt printed with an offensive message about Hillsborough on the back of it. The city became aware and responded by sending alot of Lilt, a petting zoo, skips, strippers, escorts and much much more to his front door. Here are some of the tweets:
If scousers can take on the British Government, Media and Police – and win, what chance has someone like #PaulGrange got? Let it be a lesson

So after all that excitement, we got into the monotony of the weekdays.. Nothing actually exciting has happened that I am aware of. England played a football match, Liverpool was largely not bothered. However, some great tweets have been posted.. Let me show you..
Like this monstrosity of food…

Public transport in the city is still at tragic levels regarding bus drivers giving change..
Just paid for a £2.50 bus journey with a five pound note and the driver nearly burst into tears.

Not forgetting that a big gorilla was shot this week in America after a child fell into a moat where the gorilla was relaxing and it sparked international outrage..
Mad the way white people with dreadlocks who own bong shops seem to know more about the threat a gorilla poses than people who run a zoo.

That gorilla they shot was actually yer Da in a monkey suit

Just explained what happened with the kid & the gorilla to my 2 week old daughter and she looked at me & said, “Where’s the humanity gone?”
