    Tweeting from the Altar.

    Groom creates viral storm twittering from altar

    Mon, Nov 23 2009 NEW YORK (Reuters Life!) - A Maryland groom has created an viral story storm after he interrupted his wedding last month to update his Facebook and Twitter accounts from the altar. Lifestyle Dana Hanna, who works for a pet website, also posted a short video of the ceremony on the Internet. It showed him reaching into his pocket for his phone as the minister was about to pronounce the couple husband and wife. The video has had more than 350,000 views. "Oh, Dana is updating his relationship status on Facebook," the minister said as the audience at the wedding laughed. After Hanna finished twittering he continued the ceremony. "As I was saying, I now pronounce you husband and wife. It's now official on Facebook. It's official in my book. Dana you may kiss your bride." Hanna, who lists his profession on the networking site LinkedIn as chief architect at Next Day Pets, described his reaction to the ceremony on his YouTube account the day after the ceremony. "I surprised not only my guests, but also Tracy (his wife) by pulling out my phone and posting on Facebook and Twitter from the altar during out wedding," he said. Though users have sent marriage proposals over the micro-blogging site Twitter, interrupting a wedding ceremony to update social networking site Facebook and send out a Tweet on Twitter about it appears to be a first. "I had her phone ready in my pocket, so when she asked for it I could hand it to her. No one knew about this except the minister and myself." he said on YouTube. The Twitter post, which has garnered Hanna instant online fame, is still up on his account. "Standing at the altar with [at]TracyPage where just a second ago, she became my wife! Gotta go, time to kiss my bride. #weddingday 1:48 PM Nov 21st from Twittelator." Yesterday, apparently overwhelmed by media attention, Hanna posted a new comment on his Twitter account. "To all the criticizers of my video out there questioning my sanity: You don't get it. I was having fun at MY wedding! Loosen up, have fun!" His new bride, apparently also surprised at the viral storm her husband launched, also posted on her Twitter account. "Can't sleep, very anxious about this new fame. What will become of it?" she asked.

    I saw the video a while ago. It was pretty funny and made the room laugh. Good on him for the original joke I say.
