One Irish woman popped the question to her girlfriend in less than 140 characters.

On Wednesday, Etain Kidney proposed to her girlfriend, Michelle Walls, by projecting the tweet, "Michelle, will you marry me?" onto the wall of the Boland's Mill building in Dublin.

The proposal was possible due to AOL's "#MerryAOL" Twitter campaign. (AOL is the parent company of The Huffington Post). The company encouraged people to send holiday-related tweets using the hashtag #MerryAOL, and on Wednesday the best were projected onto the side of the building.

Kidney told Gay Community News that she worked with AOL to make the proposal happen.

"It was great to have all our friends there. I got to make a big deal of Michelle and it's so beautiful down on the dock -- couldn't ask for much more!" Kidney said.

Are Twitter marriage proposals the way of the future? Kidney is not the first to pop the question using the social media site. On Saturday, Deadmau5 tweeted a marriage proposal at Kat Von D, and in 2008 two couples got engaged after Twitter proposals.
