Well, every living being has a right to chatter with their acquaintances, kith and kin. Antarctic minke whales too fulfill their social obligations. We humans are too nosy. Other living species never interfere in our affairs.

The magic upon which Facebook and Twitter successfully floated over the past four years seems to be dissipating. But at the same time Weibo has wowed Wall Street.

Plans have been unveiled for one of the fastest lifts in the world: http://bbc.in/1k3nJsP

Hitachi says it will take just 43 seconds to travel from the first to the 95th floor in the skyscraper in Guangzhou, southern China.

Developers are promising a "comfortable ride" and say they will artificially alter air pressure in the lift to prevent ear blockages.
