And of course, one that is heavily addressed and tweeted about. Because, we don’t talk about Bruno nor CODA or Liza Minelli. The world seems to be stuck with that moment.

And as a society eager to tweet and read about the so called trends lots of users are using Twitter to express their opinions. However, in the midst of all that is being said and written about Will Smith, those mentioning @willsmith are not really paying attention. The owner of the Will Smith Twitter account is not the actor’s account. But, how does it reflect into the Twitter data?
