Where did you first meet your partner? While a lot has been said about love at first sight — with couples cherishing the spot where they first saw their lover, or went down on their knees to propose them — the Internet seems to have taken that place today. As most people spend much time scrolling their feed or responding to their friends and followers, they are bound to interact, make new friends and even, fall in love with the folks they come across on social media.
To chronicle such love stories, Twitter started the hashtag #WeMetOnTwitter, asking users all across the globe to post how they met their “friend, significant other, business partner or someone else” on the networking website. “We want to celebrate your connections this Valentine’s Day. Tweet your story using #WeMetOnTwitter and we may feature your Tweet in a special Moment,” the tweet read. No sooner did they post it, many users spilled how they met and started talking to someone who later became a special part of their lives.
Have you met one of the following on Twitter?
💙 Significant Other
💼 Business Partner
We want to celebrate your connections this Valentine’s Day. Tweet your story using #WeMetOnTwitter and we may feature your Tweet in a special Moment.

While some shared how their compliment worked magic, others revealed how asking about someone’s ‘bio’ became a bridge to start a conversation on Twitter. Read some interesting tweets here.

It started with a DM over 3 years ago. We then waited 1.5 years to finally meet in person. First met on my 25th birthday (her gift on the left). Now engaged to be married next year (seconds before I proposed on the right) ❤#WeMetOnTwitter pic.twitter.com/xXhO8DzukP

Meanwhile, a few Twitter users added some fun and pun in their stories, and others had only sad tales to tell. “#WeMetOnTwitter and then she blocked me,” one tweet read.
