NEW YORK – Now a days teens love to write SMS, but can they even think about to set a world record?
A teenager from Brazil has emerged as the world’s fastest texter and now holds the Guinness World Record for the fastest typing of a text message on a touch-screen mobile.
The teenager, 17-year-old Marcel Fernandes Filho, had to text the following sentences and get both the spelling and punctuation right: “The razor-toothed piranhas of the genera Serrasalmus and Pygocentrus are the most ferocious freshwater fish in the world. In reality they seldom attack a human.”
He broke the record on a Samsung Galaxy S4 in New York City, and beating the previous world’s best of 18.44 seconds with an impressive 18.19 seconds, Guinness World Records reports.
