WIRED reports that the increasingly popular Twitter microblogging service had its first public proposal of marriage yesterday morning.
Max Kiesler, a San Francisco-based web designer, asked his co-worker and partner of 15 years, Emily Chang, for her hand in marriage.
Given the 140 character limit, the message read: “To @emilychang – After fifteen years of blissful happiness I would like to ask for your hand in marriage?”
The reply, within a minute: “@maxkiesler – yes, i do.”
Co-founder of Twitter, Biz Stone, reckons that the public proposal could be a first for the service. “It’s hard to confirm for certain that it is the very first marriage proposal over Twitter,” he wrote in an e-mail to Wired.com. “It may well be the first public marriage proposal over Twitter (some accounts are protected).”
