WORLD’S FIRST ‘MARRIAGE’ ON TWITTER

@brucewagner and @k8dt say ‘I do’

by @makingthenews, twitter correspondent

@brucewagner and @k8dt made history this week — by becoming the first couple to MARRY on twitter.
The popular New York chat show host had the craziest of days on Monday when he first of all went ‘missing’ then returned to discover he had wed an Italian-based singer songwriter.
@k8dt told the all tweet journal: “When Bruce went missing I got worried so I started messaging a few tweets to find out what had happened, asking ‘does anyone know what happened to Bruce?’
“An hour later Bruce came back with the answer .. I DO with a link to what had happened. After reading the story I replied to say ‘I DO TOO!!!’
“All of a sudden  I began getting messages saying ‘sorry to have missed the wedding’.”
Married @k8dt refused to comment on rumours that she could be charged with bigamy but said: “If Bruce wasn’t gay and I wasn’t married we would have a great future.”
Bruce refused to confirm that he was now a married man. He said: “Rumours of my marriage over twitter have been exaggerated, I am only just now hearing about it. However, I am not denying that it happened … I am just saying I don’t recall it happening very well at all.”
Bruce’s boyfriend Ed was unavailable for comment.

Twestival Edition

After months of meticulous planning …

@TWESTIVAL HERE AT LAST

By @makingthenews, Twitter Correspondent

THIS is it, folks, the moment we have all being waiting for — after months of selfless planning Twestival is here!
More than 175 cities around the world will be hosting Twestivals which bring the twitter community together for an evening of fun and to raise money and awareness for charity: water.
A Twestival spokesman said: “The Twestival is organised 100% by volunteers in cities around the world and 100% of money raised will go directly to support charity: water projects. By collaborating on an international scale, but working from a local level, the Twestival hopes to bring awareness to this global crisis.
“Right now 1.1billion people on the planet don’t have access to safe, clean drinking water. That’s one in six of us.
“charity: water is a non-profit organisation bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations by funding sustainable clean water solutions in areas of greatest need.”
