This girl's tweet to a bookshop's Twitter account ended with a wedding

You really never know where you're going to find true love but it's safe to say that you don't usually expect to find it on the official Twitter account of your favourite book store.

However for one woman it was a case of love at first tweet. Victoria Carlin was so enamored with the musings coming from the Waterstones' Official Twitter Account that she felt compelled to let them know that whoever mans the account had stolen her heart.

It was actually a tweet about Pokemon that sealed the deal for her.

Her Waterstones crush tried to play it cool with some self deprecating humour.


The man behind the Waterstones account, Jonathan O'Brien says that the pair tweeted back and forth for a while before agreeing to meet in person.

"One day Victoria came into the shop with doughnuts, I ate them, (giving away a very cavalier attitude to food from strangers)," Jonathan told Mashable.

The pair went for a walk during his lunch break and then a cocktail bar later that evening.

"It was easily the best first date I've ever been on (and hopefully the last first date I'll ever go on). I brought a book of The Wizard of Oz as a present because Victoria had mentioned to me how much she loves the film," Jonathan continued.

Four years later and the pair walked down the aisle.
