According to Wikipedia
Typing is the process of writing or inputting text by pressing keys on a typewriter, computer keyboard, cell phone, or calculator. It can be distinguished from other means of text input, such as handwriting and speech recognition. Text can be in the form of letters, numbers and other symbols.
Well these days according to some of the verifications of Google and Guinness Book of World Records Mr. Micheal Shestov is the fastest typist in the whole world with some 217WPM (Words per Minute).
Well that is surely unbelievable.
I, myself, is considered to be very good typist in the circle of my friends and my typing speed is merely 40WPM. :P
So hats off to that guy who holds such an amazing world record.
