Thousands of would-be festival-goers sat gridlocked in their cars over night after torrential rain turned the Isle of Wight into a Glastonbury-style mudbath, causing organisers to close car parks.
It was a miserable situation for all those involved and surely not something anyone would want to make fun of...
Oh, except for @karlminns: "I'm having my own Isle of Wight Festival by sitting in a carwash with the roof down tearing up money #IsleofWight."
And @WillBlackWriter: "Isle of Wight Festival 1970 = 600,000 people without tickets on LSD in the mud. 2012 = Telegraph readers scared of the rain."
Oh yeah, and @I_am_KenBarlow: "Awful for those people at the Isle of Wight Festival..... I don't mean the floods...I mean I've just heard that Lana Del Rey is on tonight."
@digitalspy obviously has a sense of humour too, happily tweeting one follower "Hi! You've won a pair of tickets to the Isle of Wightfestival."
Taken 2, Liam Neeson
Liam Neeson’s back as former CIA agent Bryan Mills (surely the hardest Bryan in history) in the new trailer for Taken 2, and this time both his wife and his daughter have been kidnapped. To paraphrase Oscar Wilde, to have one member of your family taken may be regarded as a misfortune, to have two members taken looks like carelessness...
@_vickypollard_ was not impressed with what she saw, asking: “how many times is Liam Neeson gonna let his daughter get kidnapped, he's a worse parent than i am,” while @JamesSeekings questioned the sanity of the kidnappers: “Taken 2? Is this a joke, who would actually be stupid enough to mess around with Liam Neeson and his daughter after seeing the first Taken?”
@pattonoswalt saw the trailer as more of an ad for Neeson’s special brand of kick-ass vengeance, asking “Dear Liam Neeson: A seagull just took my Wetzel's Pretzel. Gonna need you to get bloody on this one. Half now, half on completion.”
@ChaseMit, meanwhile, feared for Neeson’s sanity should things continue in a similar vein: “Can't wait to see Taken 3, in which a confused Liam Neeson kidnaps his own daughter.”
A computer glitch preventing NatWest and RBS customers from performing transactions online has led to tough questions from some of their customers.
@ClareMiller1 wondered "You charge me £35 per day when I go overdrawn so how about you giving me £35 per day I can't withdraw MY money #NatWest?" Good luck with that, Claire.
@ritchyk preferred to express himself through the medium of song, with this tribute to rapper Jay-Z: "If you bank with Natwest, I feel bad for you son, you got 99 pound and you can't withdraw one."
And Elizabeth Windsor, aka @Queen_UK, got straight to the point, asking "Dear Natwest, where is one's sodding salary?! Regards, The Queen."
Of course, as journalists we are honour-bound to allow the bank the right to reply, so please note these tweets from @NatWest_Help informing customers that "Over 1000 of our branches will be open until 7pm tonight to help customers with enquiries or who need access to their cash... In addition, our branches open on Saturday will extend working hours to 6pm, and these branches will also be open this Sunday from 9am."
But we'll let @SkyCricket have the last word on this subject: "Match abandoned! England win NatWest Series 2-0 #EngvWI." Oh, wait...
Ringo Starr is a recent covert to Twitter but his first message suggests he may still be adapting to micro-blogging (or experiencing flashbacks from those heady 60s parties):
"Which unassisted optima going to do a good okay Lordy Lordy Picca Bennicoff wow my fish Trietsch yeah Pisa love Ringo my Feras tweets," tweeted the former Beatle, @ringostarrmusic. And who are we to disagree with that?
