This isn’t exactly a first of its kind but a man proposing over Twitter is somewhat unromantic. It’s just me okay. I’m more of a quiet gal so I prefer a private, just-him-and-me kind of proposal. Not for Mike Duersen who was brave enough to use the micro social network while his wedding proposal to his girlfriend is progressing.
Winnipeg-based Mike Duersen, a non-profit communicator, live tweeted his proposal using the hastag #MikeProposes so his followers would now. Luckily, his girlfriend doesn’t have a Twitter account and left her phone at home. The hashtag soon became popular and was trending after a few hours.
Mike’s proposal stretched over 12 hours as he took his soon-to-be-fiancee to 18 different locations special to them. At the last stop, a bonfire, Mike finally asked his girlfriend to be his bride.
After 15 minutes of telling her a story and popping the question, he tweeted “Folks, she said yes!“.
Lucky girl or lucky man? I know geeks would agree ‘lucky man’. I just wish them all the best.
