The first Twitter wedding proposal took place in 2008, when Greg Rewis used 140 characters to propose to his now-wife Stephanie Sullivan. Since then, many romantic couples have gotten engaged on Twitter. Even celebrities are doing it, including actresses Kristen Bell and Kat Von D. Twitter proposals have the advantage of being short, sweet and to the point. They’re also very comfortable for couples who use technology as the cornerstone of their communication style. If this is you and your sweetheart, a Twitter proposal can be a great idea. On the other hand, there’s something very special about a face-to-face proposal that you might not want to miss. Why put your phone in the middle of the romantic moment? If you’ve got any hesitations that a Twitter proposal might not be thrilling to your sweetheart, opt for the old-school, in-person approach.
