The top hashtag for 2012 is #ЗдравоБоби (Hello Bobi). JovanaTozija explained [mk] that unlike the lucrative motives of the past, now all you need to connect with fashion icon “is Twitter and a publicly expressed wish for sexual relation.” The meme started very innocently, when Bobi praised a “phenomenally beautiful” top model to the point of inviting her to become a mother to his child. She actually responded with a photo greeting.

The point of this viral campaign–or “successful trolling project” according [mk] to RubinBT–was to “show the power of the social media to get a response by a celebrity soul-mate,” as Nixon, Inc elaborated [mk].

The top tweet for 2012 is by Ina…
