Thought you couldn't make jokes about Margaret Thatcher's funeral, Rolf Harris's arrest or Justin Bieber's comments about Anne Frank? You haven't spent much time on Twitter, dear friend.

Yes, the 'microblogging website' (copyright: all papers five years ago) has provided a running - and often very funny - commentary on all these events and more this week.
