TRENDS lets you map real-time and historical trends instantly and offers you a high-level view of what's TRENDing across the world!

Realtime Trends

Realtime Trends help you understand how trending topics on X play out globally.

You can zoom in to country-level as well as city level and see what's hot right now, and what's fading, helping you gauge what ideas and themes might work in certain markets or industries.

In addition to an overview of what's trending right now, our Realtime Trends gives you a 24-hour time-lapse view, allowing you to understand where a topic has been the top trend in the last 24 hours.

For more details about Realtime Trends, see the following page:
