Rupert Murdoch, Edward Snowden, Britain's Got Talent And More: Funny Tweets Of The Week


Our latest Twitter round-up is brought to you by the letters GCHQ, GCSE and D.I.V.O.R.C.E.

It was the week that further NSA/Prism/GCHQ accusations were made as a result of Edward Snowden's whistleblowing; Michael Gove announced that GCSEs would replaced by something more difficult (A levels?); and young lovebirds Rupert Murdoch and Wendi Deng revealed that their marriage is over. Yes, anyone who said that would last has got pie on their face now.

It was also the week that Prince Philip celebrated his birthday in hospital and the world's oldest man died (note: these two stories are not related), that Google was in the spotlight once again over its tax affairs, and Facebook embraced #hashtags.
