Twitter buzzing about Star Wars Day

Some Twitterers are waking up this morning to an unusual top trend: "Happy Star Wars Day."

Between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m. local time in London, there were more than 1,500 "Star Wars" tweets. Most came from early-risers in Europe, but others were tweeting as well.

Some were confused, but quickly caught on to the significance of May 4 being Star Wars Day, thanks to Twitter:
