Deadmau5 has proved that romance is far from dead in the internet age, after he successfully proposed to his girlfriend via Twitter.

The DJ – real name Joel Zimmerman – posted an image of a ring on the social network on Saturday (December 15) with the caption "I can't wait for Christmas so.... Katherine Von Drachenberg, will you marry me? @thekatvond"

It would seem that the answer was a yes, as he then followed up with the Tweet: "Holy fucking shit. I’m engaged and stuff!" before adding: "Thanks for the well wishes and support from the horde and everyone else! brb while I spend the rest of my evening with my future wife :)".

Responding to any negative feedback about his romantic methods, he wrote earlier today: "To absolve any "proposing on twitter is lame" quips... we met on Twitter, so I thought it was appropriate and thoughtful. Just sayin'."

According to the LA Times, the couple split after dating for a few months in November, taking to Twitter to write about the break-up.

Deadmau5 released his last album, 'Album Title Goes Here' in September 2012.
