Stephanie Sullivan of W3Conversions e-mailed Friday to report that she and her fiancee, Greg Rewis, got engaged March 2 via Twitter.
The couple live in different cities and travel constantly, so the tweet engagement made sense for them.
“I thought it was the most romantic proposal ever!” writes Sullivan.
“And he surprised me with the ring when we met on my layover in PHX (on our way to SXSW to speak).”
Here’s the current contender for first Twitter proposal:
The proposal: “@stefsull – ok. for the rest of the twitter-universe (and this is a first, folks) – WILL YOU MARRY ME?”
Sullivan’s reply: “@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.”
Rewis’ justification for using Twitter rather than getting down on bended knee or using another, more modern, proposal ritual: “Screw Times Square! THIS, my friends, is the way to propose to a beautiful, wonderful woman!”
