Twitter was full this week with a response of the crisis in Greece, the night to remember because of the show of Jay-Z and Kanye West and of course of the Republican Herman Cain. Here are some of this week’s top tweets.

Greece dept crisis: Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou backed away Thursday from a proposal to hold a referendum on a European bailout plan. Here is a impression of the conversation about it on Twitter…
@Scott_Gilmore: Greece is collapsing, the Iranians are getting aggressive, and Rome is in disarray. Welcome back to 430 BC.
@paulmasonnews: I ask Sarko how is it just that the most powerful countries in Europe are effectively trying to change the governments of Italy and Greece?
@rilaws: Based on their yogurt and only their yogurt, I do not get why Greece is in trouble.
@dominiccampbell: When you have “Greece is doomed” and “Groupon raises $700m” next to each other in your tweet stream, you know the world is truly screwed.
@Queen_UK: Text from Nick Clegg: “Really hope Greece doesn’t leave the Eurovision Song Contest. I always vote for them!”
@spygun: What future for Greece? Its greatest exports are its young and qualified people as they seek a career elsewhere. Terribly sad.
Kanye West and Jay-Z earned their first no. 1 single with “N***as In Paris” and stopped in DC yesterday for an unbelievable performance of their “Watch the Throne” Tour.
@lilduval: I think people be so caught up in the hype yall forget Jay z and kanye west just are rappers. Y’all want them to walk on water
@RobbieGavin Chillin’ with the beats on, doing some Business. Jay-Z and Kanye West make it a lot easier.
@KiddoLoves I’m feeling that “N***as in Paris” by Kanye West and Jay-Z.
@YansyFTW: Jay-Z and Kanye West is the best thing that has happened to Hip-Hop nowadays.
Herman Cain runs for President, denies the most serious allegation facing him – that he made an unwanted sexual advance toward a female employee at a work event and it seems he is still about the perfect vessel for surviving just such a pickle.
@tomcolicchio: Hermann Cain declares that we can not let China develop nuclear weapons. Hey Herm your 50 years late
@dannyson1: Soooo just cause maybe Hermann Cain had a sexual harassment suit against him that will bring him down? lol PULEASE
@afrogirl23: hermann cain may be the right choice for america. we are a corporation so either him or the dominoes pizza guy.
@agnosticviews: How is Hermann Cain “a different kind of candidate”? We’ve had idiots running in politics during every election.
@DreaWintour: Don’t understand why Hermann Cain is polling so well either. He has some of the weakest policies of all the candidates. Republicans are ODD.
