Twitter index: Islamic New Year, One Direction, what makes you smile?

"#WhatMakesMeSmile" is a top Twitter trend on Wednesday, followed by the more cryptic "#AMALAYER."

Caught on camera is a disturbance in the Filipino railway station at Santolan, in which a disgruntled bilingual customer takes issue with a guard - "You're telling me that I'm a liar?" - giving rise to the hashtag meme "#AMALAYER."

Muslims greet each other with "Salam Maal Hijrah" to mark the Islamic New Year, while Italian speakers talk about what their parents don't know, using the phrase "quello che i miei genitori non sanno".

Europe and Spain trend as public protests take place over austerity measures, fans of One Direction offer their support to Harry Styles, Justin Bieber fans swap life lessons, and excitement builds over a Brazil vs Colombia soccer match.
