Twitter index: Zane Lowe's Glastonbury mishap gets Twitter users fired up

Twitterers are trashing (and applauding) Radio DJ and TV presenter "Zane Lowe" for not sticking around to watch Beyonce's "ground-breaking" Glastonbury performance.

During live TV coverage of the event on the UK's BBC, co-host Lauren Laverne asked what he thought of Beyonce's set. Lowe mockingly laughed and admitted he went to see the Queens of the Stone Age instead.

"Zane Lowe could have saved himself the last, horrible 30 mins of his life if he'd just said 'I didn't see it. How was she?'" tweet hoards of microbloggers.

However, not everyone on Twitter is so upset over the mishap."Newsflash: Zane Lowe says what he really thinks, rather than repeating the words 'awesome,' 'seminal' and 'incredible' over and over," posted one Twitter user.

Tweeps are posting about how people can make their cities more sustainable with Twitter's number one topic on the morning of June 27, "#GreenCity."

The hashtags "#waystoirritateme, "#ineedtostop" and "#freeass" fill the following three spots on Twitter's trending topics.

Microbloggers are posting a picture of what they believe is American rapper "Mike Jones" and commenting that "he could not have lost all that weight naturally."

The name of Argentinian football team "River Plate" is in tenth place.
