For many, Twitter has become a major part of everyday life acting as a news source or a company promoter. Some have even become addicted to the social media site, spending all of their waking moments tweeting their every move, but one couple from Istanbul took it one step further by saying “I do” through tweets on their wedding day.
Cengizhan Celik and Candan Canik got married this past Monday in a ceremony officiated by their local mayor. While they said “Evet”, which is Turkish for “I do”, during the ceremony, they also immediately tweeted the romantic phrase on an iPad held by the couple.
The mayor even asked them if they took each other as husband and wife a second time, specifically so they could answer by tweeting. Of course, like all good weddings these days, the ceremony was recorded and has already been uploaded to the Internet.
It seems that these days, nothing is sacred anymore. What were once special and private events like weddings and child birth are now being advertised for the world to see with just the press of a button. Is this extreme social media sharing of personal events just a phase? Or will it continue for years and years to come?
What do you think of this Twitter wedding? Would you share a personal event of your own on the popular site?
