On Thursday, February 7, football fans on Twitter are reacting to news of Jamie Carragher's retirement from professional football while fans of the band One Direction are celebrating the first anniversary of "Up All Night". 

Football Jamie Carragher, who plays for English Premier League side Liverpool, Thursday announced his intention to retire from the professional game at the end of the season causing his name to trend in eighth place on Twitter's worldwide trends.

Carragher, aged 35, has made over 700 senior appearances for Liverpool -- a record only bettered by former player Ian Callaghan -- and has won 38 caps for England.

Also causing a buzz on Twitter Thursday, in fourth and fifth place, is the album "Up All Night" by band One Direction. The album was released worldwide in early March 2012 and fans of the band are taking to Twitter, albeit a little prematurely, to wish the album a "Happy Birthday".
