Propal by Tweet: Two Twitter Marriage Proposals
Posted on April 5, 2008Getting married online isn't a new but proposing on the microblogging service called Twitter is a novelty. This Wired article documents two such incidents. The most recent was Max Kiesler's proposal to Emily Chang.
Max Kiesler's sweet tweet read, "To @emilychang - After fifteen years of blissful happiness I would like to ask for your hand in marriage?"
Wired notes that Emily Chang quickly reply a minute later with this short tweet: "@maxkiesler - yes, i do."
The earliest known documented marriage proposal on Twitter happened on March 2nd, 2008. You can see the proposal tweet here. this geek proposal began, "@stefsull - ok. for the rest of the twitter-universe (and this is a first, folks) - WILL YOU MARRY ME?"
This proposal was also successful. Sullivan's reply was, "@garazi - OMG - Ummmmm... I guess in front of the whole twitter-verse I'll say -- I'd be happy to spend the rest of my geek life with you."
Just two proposal tweets are known so far but with Twitter's popularity growing there are bound to more. However, Twitter is probably going to be a better place to announce an engagement than to make a proposal.
