Fight! Piers Morgan versus Rusbridger on Twitter
Piers Morgan has just arrived on Twitter but he's already picked a fight with Guardian editor-in-chief Alan Rusbridger by boasting about how many followers he's got.
Piers tweets: "@arusbridger Dear Alan, I've overtaken your follower count in less than a day. That's got to hurt, right?"
Rusbridger responds: "@piersmorgan as I've always tried to explain, Piers, it's not about numbers..."
Piers hits back: "@arusbridger But you've always explained that from a position of catastrophic numerical loss. So not entirely credible argument."
This is just what Twitter was invented for.
