Man proposes to girlfriend over Twitter, takes 12 hours to achieve successThere are many ways to show one’s love to another, and with modern day technology, the scope of a wedding proposal goes farther than that of the usual romantic dinner and “on bended knee” stance while popping the question. Mike Duerksen, a local non-profit communicator, decided to live-tweet his marriage proposal under the hashtag #MikeProposes, taking more than a dozen hours as he sent his girlfriend scampering to 8 other locations which is close and dear to them. Those who followed the channel were obviously on the edge of their seats, and right after 8:30 p.m. on Friday evening, Duerksen finally received a resounding yes. Definitely a better love story than Twilight…

Duerksen’s decision to go live with his proposal via Twitter was his way of ensuring his friends remain involved throughout the process. Do you think that someone else will follow Mike’s footsteps in the future, or will there be a different and equally creative way of harnessing the power of social networks when it comes to uniting two people in holy matrimony?
