Anyone who thinks romance is dead hasn’t been on YouTube lately.
After Ben Milak sent us this sweet YouTube video of him surprising longtime girlfriend Ashley Anderson with a marriage proposal last month, I quickly found two other Charleston marriage proposals that were equally touching. UPDATE: I just added a fourth, sent to me by Steve Murphy. See below.
Here’s Ben’s video. Warning: There is some strong language.
Justin Bieber performed in Columbia Monday night. It didn’t take long for the Justin-Bieber-is-in-Charleston rumors to begin. In fact, they got a lot of help from this fake tweet posted on Bulldog Tours’ Facebook page Tuesday morning:
The company finally admitted the hoax about 7 hours later:
By then, the Bieber ‘sightings’ were in full force.
A chase, a wreck, a manhunt. That was the scene on Ladson Road near North Charleston today.
I found out about it within minutes not because the police released information or because I saw it on a news site, but because several people tweeted about it.
That’s the world we live in now: even journalists lean on social media sites to help track and report stories because news travels so fast. If you’ve been following the Ladson Road story you’ll notice that the questions about what happened outnumbered the answers.
Ladson Road at Miles Jamison???Anybody know WTH is going on?? #chstraffic
