A keyword becomes a trending topic on Twitter when a considerable number of people tweet about it at the same time. Trending topics are categorized based on territories -- hence, a keyword can become trending in one country or one city but not in another. Worldwide trending is achieved when a keyword receives considerable tweet volume from the world over at a given point.
How many concurrent tweets does a keyword need to be a trending topic or what exact tweet volume is needed to catapult a query to trending status? Twitter's yet to disclose that info.
