On March 9 Twitter users around the world are wishing a happy birthday to Shannon Leto, drummer in the rock band 30 Seconds to Mars, and getting excited about the upcoming film Moonrise Kingdom.

Moonrise Kingdom from film maker Wes Anderson will be opening this year's Cannes Film Festival, it was announced on March 8. Set in the 1960's and starring Bruce Willis and Bill Murray, the film tells the story of two young lovers who run away from the small coastal New England town in which they live.

News that both Coke and Pepsi will be changing the recipe of their rival soft drinks brands, allegedly in order to avoid having to display a ‘cancer warning label', is also making waves amongst microbloggers.
