A Young Couple Uses Twitter to Say ‘I Do’

If you think Twitter is used far too often by people to share the mundane details of their lives (I’m having a bowl of cereal! #Kellogg’s), you might find this story refreshing. A Turkish couple recently took to the social site to share one of the biggest, most important moments of their lives when they said their wedding day “I dos” by tweeting them out.

Cengizhan Celik and Candan Canik married last month in Üsküdar, Istanbul by tweeting out the word “evet,” which means “yes” In Turkish and is essentially the same thing as saying “I do.” The ceremony was officiated by local mayor, Mustafa Kara, who partook in the Twitter theme as well when he asked if the bride and groom would take each other as husband and wife, by typing it onto an iPad before sending it out.

The couple, pictured here in a photo posted on a guest’s twitter account, may seem twitter obsessed, but according to New York Daily News, bride and groom, who is social media editor for a news site, added the twist to their wedding for “a little surprise.”  In fact, up until the big day the bride hadn’t sent out a single tweet. We think it’s a good way to start.

And if you’re wondering, the couple later made it official on a marriage certificate using a pen – the old-fashioned way.
