# What is a Trending Word™?

This is in the spirit of the What is a Word™/Phrase™ series started by JLee with a special brand of Phrase™ and Word™ puzzles.

If a word conforms to a special rule, I call it a Trending Word™.
Use the following examples below to find the rule.

$$\begin{array}{|c|c|}\hline \bbox[yellow]{\textbf{Trending Words }^™}& \bbox[yellow]{\textbf{Not Trending Words }^™}\\ \hline \text{ JUDO }&\text{ KEY }\\ \hline \text{ WHO }&\text{ IRK }\\ \hline \text{ BURN }&\text{ EAT }\\ \hline \text{ MUD }&\text{ TALK }\\ \hline \text{ UNITE }&\text{ TIDY }\\ \hline \text{ PURE }&\text{ TOO }\\ \hline \text{ GLOAT }&\text{ HAPPY }\\ \hline \text{ MUCH }&\text{ LEND }\\ \hline \text{ HI }&\text{ LIKE }\\ \hline \text{ QUOTE }&\text{ SAY }\\ \hline \text{ DIE }&\text{ SHRUG }\\ \hline \text{ BAE }&\text{ SHAME }\\ \hline \text{ FUCHSIA }&\text{ SNOW }\\ \hline \text{ NOTE }&\text{ GRAPE }\\ \hline \text{ QUIT }&\text{ VAN }\\ \hline \text{ WOE }&\text{ PERF }\\ \hline \text{ WHOA }&\text{ FLAME }\\ \hline \text{ VAT }&\text{ TRUMP }\\ \hline \end{array}$$
