A third and fourth user played along with the joke and joined in with the new way of telling the time.
“OMG! Is it 113 minutes to 10 already? I’m going to be late,” remarked one.
“My bus is at 127 minutes past 6….I best get a wiggle on,” the other user added.
In another tweet, Dan made fun of himself for wearing the same outfit as a guest on the show today.
Dan and Ed Miliband could be seen on screen in similar blue suits and red ties.
”Who wore it better?” a user jokingly asked, pointing out the fashion blunder.
To which the host replied: “Can’t believe it! @Ed_Milibandn told me he would be wearing his green tie today #BBCBreakfast.”
