Emily & Max: The Twitter Proposal (Twitter History)

Emily & Max: The Twitter Proposal (Twitter History)

You may not know but, the Library of Congress will be archiving every Tweet since it starting in March of 2006. I found this quite facinating since there are about 50 billion tweets out there and I send out my fair share.

On to my part in history… Unsuspecting little ‘ol me, last spring received a “Direct Message ” (a private email through Twitter) from two of my followers; @marcorbito & @scrivrner, mentioning that a couple recently  announced their engagement on Twitter. They also sent out the “tweet” that they wanted to use vendors they found through Twitter. I clearly remember because I was on my way to Little Oven for some late night dessert which is the informal tweet-up local here in Honolulu. I say unsuspecting, because I had no clue I’d be a part of Twitter history!

This past Friday, I received a phone call from and had to listen to the message three times to make sure I heard the message right! I couldn’t believe the it, they were asking permission to use one of my images from Emily & Max’s Wedding here in Hawaii. I have to admit it’s not as earth shattering as the elections in Iran where we all changed our avatars to green in solidarity or the breaking news story about the “Miracle on the Hudson” but I’m honored just the same.

Here are some other images from Emily & Max’s Wedding. I had a fabulous time photographing them and their families to share in this wonderful haooy occasion. enjoy

    Congratulations! All your old New York pals are rooting for you to get more business from this. MSNBC gets my vote for their politics too.
