[Groom-er] Online Audience Follows Real-time Proposal Shared on Instagram and Twitter. #MikeProposes
It’s no secret that we’re big fans of technology. We share lots of photos through our various platforms, and you can see us live-posting from events around Breckenridge, Summit County and the Vail Valley. But, today’s post is about a guy from Winnepeg who tweeted as his proposal unfolded. His girlfriend had no clue that an online audience followed. He started by letting his twitter followers in on the deal with this tweet: “Tomorrow I’m proposing to my girlfriend. I’ll be using the hashtag#MikeProposes. Follow along! #Winnipeg”
According to an an online article from The Next Web, “he took his girlfriend on a 12-hour date, involving 8 different locations, each with a special meaning. Without her knowing, he had brought the entire Twitterverse along with them for the ride. According to the Winnipeg Sun, he also gained hundreds of followers in the process.”
We love the creativity of today’s guys and how they’re using social technologies to have fun with their proposals and weddings. It’s a great way to add an element to a great story that did not exist a few years ago. With guys like this setting the bar, what’s next?
