Electronic DJ gets hitched the modern way

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.
