    After being requested, I made a simple bot to scrape today's Google and Twitter trends into a CSV file. This is a very simple app. After you open it, it will save the trends.csv to the same directory of the app, so be sure to unzip it. Once you have the csv, you can open it in Excel and play with the data. For example, by removing rows with the "@" symbol if you don't want Twitter people, or removing the "#". This should work on Windows machines of both 32/64 bit. Let me know if you have any bugs.

    This app scrapes trends in: Australia, Canada, USA and UK.

    Download: https://www.mediafire.com/?mbga01t66iteruj

    Let me know if you want any features added. I won't add any features until they're requested multiple times. The app was so simple, I didn't think it needed a GUI. It is a console app.

    Interesting. I wonder what's causing it. Looking into this.

    Edit: Nvm, I thought you said my file had a virus in it. You just scanned the MediaFire url and 2 items in VT said MediaFire is malicious, but I think everyone here uses MediaFire. If facepalm memes were still in style, I'd put one here. If people want to see the file scanned, here it is:

    mseostrategy, just a tip for the future: before calling someone out, may it be on BHW or in real life, you better damn well be sure you know what you're talking about. In this case, you clearly don't.

    Did the new day just start in your timezone? It scrapes today's trends. Therefore, if that's all that's started to trend today, that's all that will show.

    You're looking at global trends. These are not global trends. We check on .ca, .com, co.uk and .com.au.
