Along with #SmartiPhone5BNOLotto, #iLoveSmartiPhone5, #GoForSmartiPhone5 also trends consistently on top. Globe on the other hand scores a little on the trend spots with #GiveMeThatGlobeiPhone5 and #High5forGlobeiPhone5. Marketing department of Globe should work something to trend better. Just for my opinion!
