More than any other social media, Twitter is rapidly becoming the preferred “love” media. From finding a date to proposing marriage, this is like sailing on the digital “Love Boat,” if you are old enough to remember that TV series. So many new technologies, to use, so little time. Somehow Twitter has become the preferred love connection. Don’t forget the Direct Message (DM) feature when things start to become more intimate. Twitter doesn’t maintain statistics on how many of its users met through the site, but it does actively crowdsource and feature stories from people who have used the app to “kindle” a romance.”
Here is an unsolicited testimonial from one happy lady, now wife and mother. “She admits to having met previous dates on MySpace and Craigslist but insists that Twitter is an ideal platform to connect with potential mates – as long as users switch from public replies to direct messaging fairly quickly. Ultimately, asking someone out on Twitter, there is still that fear of rejection that exists. But it’s super possible. It all goes down in the DMs.”
Okay, all you lonely hearts out there. Brush up on your DM skills to give Cupid a hand!
