Monday 18 July 2011
Pictures and videos of Canadian singer Justin Bieber "crashing" a wedding party have been circling the web, but Twitter-using Bieber fans believe they have been duped.
Microbloggers are tweeting "I think it was planned when Justin crashed Paige's [cousin's] wedding because she was TWEETING at the time then five seconds later its on YouTube!"
Professional golfer "Darren Clarke" is the latest winner of the British Open at Royal St George's and a current favorite on the microblogs.
Twitterers are congratulating Clarke on his win, posting, "I am absolutely delighted for Darren Clarke & toast his victory in The Open Championship at Royal St George's today. Congratulations," "Congratulations to darren clarke what a victory!" and "If I've said it once, I've said it a dozen times. Darren Clarke is the next tiger."
