Kanye West’s almost-disruption of Beck’s Grammy win for Album of the Year and NBC News anchor Brian Williams taking a brief leave of absence following his admission that he incorrectly reported being shot at while in a helicopter covering the Iraq war were a couple of the topics trending on social media this past weekend.
