Twitter, the social networking site which lets users say something in up to 140 characters, has had its 20 billionth message posted.
The landmark and rather opaque tweet was sent at 1544 GMT Saturday by GGGGGGo_Lets_Go, a Tokyo graphic designer for an advertising agency.
It said: “So that means the barrage might come back later all at once.”

Curiously on the same day, at exactly the same time, the World Health Organisation reported the 20 billionth worldwide case of digital diarrhoea.
