A Saudi broadcaster for the TV channel, Rotana Khalijia, proposed to his dream bride on Twitter, the popular microblogging site. Muhannad Abu Obeid, who tweeted in both Arabic and English, received mixed responses for the manner in which he propose, Arabic daily akhbaar24 reported.
Some users congratulated the broadcaster and welcomed the daring idea. Tweeters even created a ‘First public engagement on Twitter’ hashtag. Muhannad responded to those who objected to the idea by saying that he first met the bride’s father to ask his daughter’s hand in marriage before proposing to her on the public forum.
