New text messaging speed record. Kimberly Yeo has set a new world record for speed text messaging. She was able to enter the following phrase in 43.66 seconds, smashing the old record of 67 seconds: "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." Contestants were not allowed to use the cell phone's predictive text function and the punctuation also had to be exact.
