Every hour, the hottest trending deal, (ie with the most activity for that hour) are automatically posted.
There are also regular posts, updates, RTs, hot picks and replies which we do manually which don't feature the prefix

cheers jb. so the trending term relates to the deal "trending" on here.

It's still annoying though lol

The idea is that you have some context so you know why it's posted. If it's just straight up 'hot' then it's prefixed with 'Hot:'

trending is such a horrible, overused word.

we should make up the word Doth (deal of the hour).

It's not exactly every hour as it checks each hour to see what's trending but if it's not had votes over a certain threshold (50 right now) then it doesn't do a trending deal.

my main annoyance with it is why use the word "trending"? That term has never been used on here ever before (afaik). deals go hot or cold and by throwing the word trending at the start of each tweet just seems like a lame way to try and piggyback on the success of the whole twitter thing.

It's not a big deal just one of those lttle annoyances in life, such as

bfn,

fp.

i agree with ants, trending doesn't really make any sense on here. I've only really ever heard it on twitter also.

I don't follow hukd, so im not overly bothered.

I'm happy to use another word if you've got one

It's not used on here b/c right now we don't show trending deals. It's not hot/cold - it's the deal that attracted the most votes in the past hour.

if you don't show "trending" deals on here then why use it on the twitter feed? just post the deals, they don't need a word at the start trying to be cool and show they are down with the twitter generation.

Ideally we will find a good spot to show deals that are trending up on here too. If you have a better descriptive word I'm all ears...

Hope you changed "developers" before that is even attempted.

just post the deals, it doesn't need a descriptive word. it's a waste of 8 out of the 140 characters.
