Washington, Mar 23 : Love surely has touched the topmost level of technology, with a San Francisco web designer popping the question to the love of his life using microblogging service, Twitter.
Max Kiesler's sweet tweet at 3:13 a.m. on Mar 20: "To @emilychang - After fifteen years of blissful happiness I would like to ask for your hand in marriage?"
His lover, Emily Chang's reply, a minute later: "@maxkiesler - yes, i do."
Kiesler, who founded strategic design consultancy Ideacodes with Chang in 2005, confirmed that the proposal story, as reported by Mashable, was very much true.
Twitter co-founder Biz Stone said Kiesler's proposal could, indeed, be a historic moment for the microblogging service, which has grown in popularity since making headlines at South by Southwest in 2007.
"It's hard to confirm for certain that it is the very first marriage proposal over Twitter," Wired News quoted Stone, as stating in an e-mail.
"It may well be the first public marriage proposal over Twitter (some accounts are protected)," Stone added.
