The world’s fastest texter is 17 year old Marcel Fernandes Filho from Brazil with a time 18.19 seconds. He beat the previous mark of 18.44 seconds to take the crown. He holds the Guinness Book of World Records for the fastest typing of a text using a mobile device.

Using a Samsung Galaxy S4 he had to type the following sentence using correct spelling and punctuation: ‘The razor-toothed piranhas of the genera Serrasalmus and Pyocentrus are the most ferocious freshwater fish in the world. In reality they seldom attack a human’. Yep, everything spelled correctly and the punctuation was perfect, and he did all of that in, 18.19 seconds.

‘Authors note’: Do you know how many times I had to use spell check while writing this? I would never win!
