I’ve heard of people Tweeting during the movies, while driving and even in the delivery room after giving birth. But how’s this for a new high (or low) in social networking: updating your Twitter page at the altar, right before kissing your bride?
That’s what a Maryland groom did, and the video of his unconventional “vows” went viral. Not only did Dana Hanna interrupt the ceremony to type: “Standing at the altar with @TracyPage where just a second ago, she became my wife! Gotta go, time to kiss my bride,” but he also updated his Facebook status while his bride-to-be and the minister stood patiently by. Guess he didn’t have cold Tweet!
So what do you think about the antics of this fast-fingered fiancé? Was it just a cute way of symbolizing his new life as a married man, or have we gone too far as a society by broadcasting the intimate details of our lives in 140 characters or less? Let me hear from you.
Hey, all you Twitter friends, I want you to know that I get a real kick out of corresponding with you. I admit, I did roll my eyes when my staff told me Twitter was the way to go, because I always joke that I’m technologically challenged. But they were right. I enjoy communicating with everyone and hearing what you’re thinking about in your lives and families.
I hope you get a better sense of who I am and what I’m doing. I feel like I have a true community of not just “followers,” but friends.
I do write my own tweets and enjoy reading yours. I know it is for fun so I try to keep it light yet responsive. If somebody is using foul language like a kid learning to cuss, I block that person instantly and hope you do too.
