Most people seem to think that this is a fine way to propose in these tech-oriented times, though there are some online detractors who have not hesitated to call these tweethearts twits. Positive comments on blogs call the proposal original, romantic, geeky in a good way, and fun. Negative comments on other blogs call the proposal impersonal, lame, shallow, banal, and boring.
Me? I’m guessing that Sean knows Tara and would not have popped the question over Twitter if he thought it would ruin his chances of a positive response.
Tara’s own response backs that up:
Asking me over Twitter was probably the most adorable, amazing, dorky, hilarious and appropriate move Sean could have made.
One of the main problems people seem to have with this particular proposal is the fact that it was so public, but how is it any different than getting gown on one knee on the jumbotron at a sports arena? I think if it works for Sean and Tara, awesome, and I look forward to reading more about their space pirate, space ninja, space zombie wedding!
