1. The Evisceration of Paula Deen
2. The Schooling of Don Lemon
3. The Onion Apologizes
4. Miley Cyrus: Twerkgate 2013
5. Scandal Takes Over Twitter
This one definitely spans beyond the realm of #BlackTwitter, as Scandal has a very diverse fan base, but a huge portion of live-tweeting Scandal fans are black, and this season saw the show's online influence surge. Each episode generates hundreds of thousands of tweets. During the season 3 premier, for example, fans tweeted over 700,000 times, generating over 34 million impressions. That is huge.
