A British mobile phone network engineer has become the world's fastest texter.
James Trusler, 30, from Shoreham, West Sussex, beat his previous world text messaging record by nearly a minute on Australian TV to claim the prize.
He had to type: "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."
James Trusler typed the message in just 67 seconds.
James has been confirmed world text champion by the Guinness Book of Records since September 2002 ,
when he was crowned Australian Champion.
The text-mad expat says he sends about 500 messages from his phone every week.
He has used his mobile phone to send messages for eight years, for everything from booking appointments at the hairdresser to wooing the woman in his life.
He told the Sun newspaper that sending messages to his wife-to-be Komila Chandra, 26, "helped us get to know each other better".
James offers would-be contenders for his record an array of texting tips as well as an SMS speed tester on his website, jamestrusler.com.
UK text messaging figures for March 2004 reached 2.1 billion, an increase of nearly 80 million on February's total, according to figures released by the Mobile Data Association.
