Twitter is a popular platform to make announcements on. Clarence House even announced the royal engagement between Kate Middleton and Prince William on the social information site. OK, they might have sent out a press release around the same time, but the service went haywire shortly after CH sent out a 132 character tweet last November that read:

“The Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince William to Miss Catherine Middleton –

Now, 25-year-old McFly member Tom Fletcher has followed suit. Tom has popped the question to long-term girlfriend Giovanna Falcone, who he’s been dating for seven years, and decided to share the news on Twitter.

Tom wrote: “Ok, you’d find out from someone else sooner or later so I thought I’d be the first one to tell you………

“I proposed to @giovannafalcone earlier tonight…and she said YES! We are now officially engaged! 😀

“My fiance and I would like to say thanks for all the lovely engagement messages. ;)”

Not long after, he added: “She’s not digging the Star Wars wedding idea … I want the ring back.”

We’re not sure about a Star Wars wedding theme either Tom but for anyone interested in looking like Han Solo and Princess Leia on their wedding day here are a few photos to inspire you.
