British rock band Black Sabbath have announced they will be among the headliners at this year’s Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago, USA.

Black Sabbath will be joined by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Black Keys, Florence + The Machine, and At The Drive-in at the three-day-long festival. The full line-up was recently posted on the Lollapalooza site and Tweeps are busy tweeting about their favorite bands.  

Brothers and sisters across the Twittersphere are wishing their siblings a happy National Siblings Day.

The annual event is celebrated on April 10 in the US and like Mother’s Day or Father’s Day it is traditionally celebrated by sending messages of love.

Reality TV star Khloe Kardashian celebrated the day by tweeting photos of her nine siblings and posting “Happy National Siblings Day!! My favorite pics of my fabulous siblings... http://bit.ly/HuK39C I love having a big family!!”

Good Charlotte lead singer Joel Madden also remembered his siblings and tweeted “Happy National Siblings Day to my 3 best friends @benjaminmadden @joshmadden @sarah_madden I love you brothers and sister.”

An earlier trend that encouraged fans to replace the names of One Direction’s songs with “freedom” has resulted in the new trending topic “Freedom Makes You Beautiful,” a twist on the band’s song “What Makes You Beautiful.”  

Microbloggers are using their 140 characters to confess to various things, come up with ghetto-themed movie titles and share their “true life” stories.

Spanish speaking Twitter users are complaining that public transport tariffs are set to rise in the city of Madrid.
