Just call them Tweethearts.
Like many men planning to pop the question, Curt Buthman dreamt up an out-of-the-box idea to ask for his girlfriend Marsha Collier’s hand in marriage – social media!
On Tuesday, using Twitter and Vine, Buthman proposed to Collier in the middle of a Twitter chat.
Here’s how the online love story came together – and warmed some hearts on the web.
Buthman proposed using the hashtag #WillYouMarryMe and a Vine video, where he flashed a sparkling rock waiting for his soon-to-be fiancée.
