Vote: Try to beat the world's fastest texter

Texting

The world's fastest texter Craig Crosbie tapped out a tough 160-character message in 48 seconds.

He's obviously really good at spelling because the message was:

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.

The CBBC Newsround Online team took between 2m 35secs and 4m.

Now it's time to test your texting skills. Tell us how long it took you to type in the message.

Remember, predictive text is not allowed!
