I’m guessing that Twitter isn’t the first website that pops into your head when you think of online dating, but after reading this story I think it should be. 3 years ago when Lila Apostolou needed a date for her sister`s wedding, she put out an open call to all men on Twitter and it turned out that one response changed her life completely.
People loved the idea so they kept on tweeting and retweeting her post, until finally a guy named Phil Gibson saw it and accepted the challenge. He commented on her post: “I can do this, I’ve got a suit and everything,” and this is how everything started.
